Online and In-Person
We offer in-person counselling in a limited capacity, and continue to offer online counselling via a secure online platform. By and large, clients have found telehealth to be effective, convenient and enjoyable.
Why Choose Online Counselling?
Research shows that online counselling can be just as effective as in-person counselling.
Our clients largely report that they feel a strong sense of connection and presence together in our online sessions.
Telehealth can also bring some unexpected benefits:
Ease of scheduling
No commute time or stress
Convenience allows for more regularity, which yields better, lasting results
Can be done while you are travelling
Those living in remote communities or outside the Lower Mainland can easily access services
You can have your pet with you; pets can be soothing and supportive companions during a session
If you have any questions or concerns regarding accessing counselling via Telehealth, please don't hesitate to reach out. We are happy to discuss and help us find a workable solution.
