Online and Telephone Counselling is a Convenient and Comfortable way to access Counselling
COVID-19 has forced many folks out of their offices and into their homes, as everyone takes steps to reduce the spread of the virus. I feel strongly that the progress that was being made in counselling shouldn’t have to stop because we can’t sit together in the same room.
This virus may have propelled us to transition faster into the online world of counselling, but online service delivery actually has tons of benefits. Many individuals who struggle with anxiety and panic have a very hard time getting to a counselling session. For others, transportation or health issues may be a limiting factor. Thanks to technology, counselling can be accessed securely in the comfort of, well - wherever you are!
What You Will Need:
A secure wifi connection
A smart phone, tablet, or computer
A headset with microphone (not necessary, but super helpful if you have it!)
eCounselling is approved by the Canadian Counselling & Psychotherapy Association, the First Nations Health Authority, Homewood Health, EMDR International Association, and the Crime Victim Assistance Program. Not all third party funding sources approve online or telephone counselling, so please call your provider to ensure this is a viable option for you.
