Online Video Counselling - Help is Here
Online video therapy, or "TeleMentalHealth", is a fast growing way of receiving counselling and psychotherapy. It offers you the chance to get the benefits of psychotherapy while you're either on the road or from within the comforts of your home. All it requires is a computer, and an internet connection.

Technology that is Secure and Private
Technology-wise, I use Skype for Business for my online video therapy sessions. I choose not to use regular Skype because through it, I can't protect your privacy. Skype for Business is designed to protect your privacy and anonymity. The program is very easy to install and can be used through your web browser. How it works is by me sending you a link in an email. This will guide you to our private and safely encrypted video therapy space. Please make sure that you're in a space where you can have the privacy to speak freely, and that is quiet so we can both focus on your needs for the duration of the time.
There has been a lot of research studies done and most have shown that people benefit from online video therapy as much as seeing the therapist in person. Video counselling sessions are especially great for people with mobility issues, agoraphobia, who are living in a remote area, or for those who simply don't want to deal with parking or public transit.
Online talk therapy can be used on its own or in conjunction with your visits in person to my counselling office in either Kitchener or Toronto. Say you've been seeing me for some time and are then about to travel. Switching to online talk therapy while you travel is easy, and keeps the continuity of our work going. This way, you can ensure that your needs are met wherever you are.
