Who chooses Video therapy?
In todays world of advancing technology some people find it a bit easier to discuss their lives through technology. Video / Skype therapy can be a more comfortable fit for some people.
What is Video Counselling?
Video Counselling provides virtual face-to-face therapeutic online sessions for personal and social issues via the web. Also called “Internet therapy”, “e-therapy”, and “cyber-counselling. ” Please note that online consultations are generally not considered a complete substitute for face-to-face sessions; however, it provides immediate assistance where help is not close by or when in-person visits are not possible. When video conferencing with a high-quality connection is used at both ends, online sessions with a qualified professional can be very effective.
Video consultations may not meet everyone’s needs. Because of the medium, online sessions may not be an effective means of responding to those who feel: suicidal, homicidal or have other psychiatric symptoms where physical human contact may be needed to intervene
How do I make an appointment?
Using video conferencing services we are able to talk ‘face-to-face.’ A free video phone service is SKYPE. It can be downloaded here from the icon on this page.
We will then send you an ‘Intake Form’ that must be completed and returned by your second session.
We meet online at the agreed upon time. Just like in-person appointments, 24 hours notice is required to cancel or re-schedule.
How effective is Video Counselling verses in-person therapy?
Online video counselling has been proven to be effective in many cases. Many issues can be discussed, and worked on in this format in the same manner as we would in-person.
There are certain conditions and issues that are not suitable for online therapy such as mental health emergencies and matters of crisis. Certain other conditions and challenges are best dealt with in-person and your therapist will address this possibility in your introductory session if necessary.
