Telehealth via video conferencing or phone
Telehealth has been shown to be very effective in the delivery of therapy. Our therapists are experienced in using Telehealth and have been providing therapy and supervision via this platform for some time. All our therapies are available over this platform.
The Benefits of telehealth are as follows;
- You can choose your therapists wherever they may be located.
- You have access to skilled therapists providing therapies such as EMDR and trauma focused therapies no matter where you live.
- It saves you time as you do not have to travel to and from your appointment.
- You are able to access therapy feeling safe in your home.
- You can continue on with your therapy, no matter where you are
- You can continue therapy with your clinician if you or they move
- Telehealth sessions are approved by Victim Services
- Some people worry that it is too complicated. Once you have downloaded the app you only have to click on the link and it will take to you to your virtual waiting room where you therapists will admit into the meeting. Your therapist can easily guide you through this if you do have any difficulties.
- Some people worry that they won’t have the same connection with their therapist. After the first session or two most people report that they feel really comfortable using telehealth and some even prefer this to in person.
- Some people are worried about their privacy and confidentiality. We use secure video platforms to ensure your privacy and confidentiality.
