Treatment services for adults, adolescents, and children are currently being provided online.
Clients must be within Ontario at the time of services.
Virtual therapy can be a convenient, comfortable, and flexible way for you to engage in treatment. As services can be provided to anyone in Ontario, virtual therapy can be convenient if you are someone who lives in a remote community, does not want the hassle of a commute, or who prefers the comfort of your own environment. Virtual therapy can be conducted via video or phone.
When accessing video services, it is important that you have a webcam, working microphone, and access to a private space where you feel comfortable engaging in a session. Headphones are optional, though some folks prefer them for privacy reasons. Sessions are conducted through a secure and confidential online platform.
You can further make a safe and comfortable environment for therapy by:
Trying to minimize distractions within the room you are accessing services from
Having a preferred object or pet nearby
Choosing to engage in sessions during a time that works best for you
If you are a parent helping to create a space for your child to access online services, think about what might make them comfortable (even better, ask them!). This may include having a preferred toy, headphones, or even paper and colouring supplies, as oftentimes art can be integrated into the therapeutic process.
If you are unsure if virtual therapy is right for you or if you have any questions about the benefits of virtual therapy, please contact us and we can book a 15-minute consultation to discuss further.
