Given the current circumstances and in following the recommendation of Ottawa Public Health and the province of Ontario, we will be offering teletherapy via phone or secure video platform until we determine it is safe to return to office. Although therapy tends to take place in-person, the introduction of more virtual options has created a more accessible array of psychological services.
Teletherapy allows us to provide counseling and therapy to our clients via live video conferencing. This can be done anywhere you have a computer or smart phone. Telehealth appointments can be very beneficial if getting to a traditional in-person appointment is not convenient, or you simply just don’t want to.
Once it is possible to safely return to offering in-person sessions, we will continue to provide teletherapy support to those individuals who feel it best meets their needs and current circumstances. Eligibility for continued teletherapy will be discussed on a case-by-case basis to ensure the highest quality of care remains available to all clients.
Our current solution allows you to schedule an appointment directly online and have the entire session take place digitally. While you don’t need a video camera, we do recommend you use one. We understand and appreciate that individual comfort levels and access to technology will vary, which is why we also offer counselling over the phone.
