We are pleased to offer Distance Counselling. If you prefer to have sessions from home, or you live too far away from one of our offices, we can assist you! We use a safe, encrypted, online program called Zoom to connect with you face-to-face. It’s easy to use. All you need is a device with a camera, a strong enough internet connection, and a private space for the session.
Online Counselling has many benefits: It offers clients all the personal connection and confidentiality of a session in the office. An online counselling session is much the same as sitting in the same room as your therapist. It makes therapy more convenient. Clients can have sessions without the planning, preparation, and travel time required for in-person sessions. Therapists can often work more extensive hours because of the convenience of online counselling. There can be less waiting time between appointments. Since Zoom is easy to use (you just click on a link in an email), even people who feel they are technology-challenged can easily participate. Clients of all ages can benefit from counselling using this straight-forward technology.
Online counselling opens up a whole new line of communication and Zoom makes it safe, easy, and convenient!
We also offer counselling over the telephone for clients who prefer to have sessions that way.
Sessions are 50 - 60 minutes long and e-transfers are used for payment at the end of each session.
