Once you confirm your availability, I'll email you a link to join the call on the day and time of your appointment.
Sessions are booked for 1 hour and are approximately 50 minutes in length for discussion. Payment and booking your next appointment occur at the end of your session.
Benefits of Online Counselling
Ease of Access
Taking time from a busy schedule, and sitting in a strange environment can make therapy challenging for people. Especially for those who live remotely, have accessibility issues, or simply value the privacy of their choices, online therapy can provide you with the help you need in your own home.
Transportation and Weather
Whether driving or taking public transportation, getting to an appointment across town or in another city can be challenging. Especially if the weather is poor, you will most likely feel like staying at home or going directly home after work. With online access, you can keep your therapy appointment in the comfort of your own home.
For those who value privacy of appointments and therapy activities, online access is a benefit. You don’t have to worry about seeing someone you know while going into a counselling office. You can choose the time and place of your session.
Sometimes life gets in the way. Online therapy offers you the easiest and most timely access to your sessions. If an illness or event is preventing you from leaving your home, or you are staying outside your home, you can still keep your appointment. When you’re running late from work or another event, you can connect from wherever you are. All you need is your laptop or phone.
