Advantages of Online Counselling
Did you know most research suggests that online counselling is just as therapeutically impactful as in person therapy?
Counselling online allows for accessing therapists from the comfort of your own home, parked vehicle, or office. It is imperative that you feel safe, comfortable, and confidential in the space that you are accessing support from: Our homes can act as a familiar, grounded space for therapy without the risk of running into someone you know. With the current pandemic health crisis, online counselling offers the ability to seek care with a lower risk of spreading infection.
We also love the benefit of saving time!
What to expect in Online Counselling:
Your first session with your therapist will usually consist of getting to know one another, reviewing consent for online counselling services, and developing treatment goals. When meeting with your therapist by video, you should receive an email link from a secured system to open at the time of your session. Systems used for online therapy should be PIPEDA and HIPAA compliant to protect the major privacy concerns clinics and clients have around telehealth.
If you are meeting by phone, your therapist will call you at the time of your appointment.
Make sure you start your online counselling session in a place you feel most comfortable and that you aren’t worried about others overhearing you.
