Life has a funny way of catching you off guard

When your life isn’t following the story you had imagined, it’s normal to wonder where it went wrong. The stress of trying to keep up with all that life throws at you, can feel like too much.

Talking it through in therapy can help.

How online therapy works

Online therapy works similarly to traditional therapy, except that we meet online instead of in the office. Sessions are typically held using video conferencing tools that allow face-to-face interaction. You schedule appointments the same way you would with traditional therapy, but instead of visiting our office, you log into a secure platform for our video session. The platforms we use for online therapy are equipped with software that complies with healthcare standards for privacy and security.

Online Therapy offers a transformational experience that extends beyond symptom management, empowering you to live a more fulfilling and proactive life.

10 Benefits of online therapy

Online therapy is:
Virtual therapy gives you access to mental health services, no matter where you are. It means you can get the help you need, even if you live far from a therapist’s office.
With virtual therapy, you can join therapy sessions from the comfort of your own home. This saves you time and the hassle of travelling to appointments.
Virtual therapy makes scheduling easier for you. You can pick times that work best for your schedule, whether you have a busy job or other commitments.
Virtual sessions offer you more privacy and anonymity. This can make it easier for you to open up and share during therapy.
Being in your familiar surroundings during therapy sessions can help you feel more at ease. It’s like having a conversation with a therapist from the comfort of your own home.
Virtual therapy uses digital tools to support your therapy journey. These tools can enhance the effectiveness of your treatment and make the process more interactive.
You’re not limited by where you live. You can connect with a therapist who meets your needs, no matter where they’re located.
Even if you or your therapist are travelling, therapy can continue without interruption. This ensures you have consistent support, no matter where you are.
Virtual therapy reduces the stress of managing appointments. You don’t have to worry about travel time or fitting sessions into your busy day.
Virtual therapy is accessible to everyone, including those with physical disabilities or mobility issues. You don’t have to deal with transportation or physical barriers to get the help you need.

Questions people ask about online therapy

Absolutely! Therapy can make a significant positive impact on your child’s well-being. Trained therapists create a safe and supportive space where your child can express themselves and develop important skills to navigate challenges. They use evidence-based techniques tailored to your child’s needs, helping them build resilience, improve emotional regulation, and enhance their overall functioning.
To participate in online therapy, clients generally need a computer, tablet, or smartphone with a camera and microphone. A reliable internet connection is also necessary to handle video conferencing without interruption. Most therapy platforms require clients to download specific software or apps that are designed to ensure security and functionality during sessions.
Online therapy platforms are required to be compliant with health privacy laws, such as PHIPAA in Canada, which ensures that any client information and communication remain confidential and secure. Therapists and platforms must use secure, encrypted video connections and cannot record sessions without permission. It’s important for clients to also secure their privacy by using private networks, secure devices and have confidential spaces to have their therapy session.

The costs of online therapy are reflective of the high quality of care provided, similar to that of traditional in-person therapy. Pricing structures typically vary based on the provider, platform, and qualifications of the therapist. As the recognition of online therapy’s effectiveness continues to grow, most insurance companies include these services in their coverage plans. However, as insurance coverage can differ significantly, it is advisable for clients to check with their insurance provider to understand exactly what is covered under their specific plan, ensuring they can access the necessary services from the comfort of their own home.

The time it takes to start feeling better with therapy varies widely due to factors such as the nature of the issues, the methods used, and individual circumstances. Here are some general expectations:

Initial Improvement: Often, clients begin to experience some relief after just a few sessions. This initial improvement can stem from establishing a connection with the therapist and the reassurance of having a safe space to explore personal issues.

Noticeable Progress: Within the first 3 to 6 months, more significant changes may become apparent, especially with consistent, weekly therapy sessions. Regular weekly meetings can help maintain momentum in the therapeutic process, allowing for quicker identification and modification of problematic patterns and behaviours. This regularity can significantly enhance the speed and effectiveness of the therapy.

Long-Term Healing: For deep-seated or complex issues, the therapeutic journey might extend over a year or more. This long-term engagement is crucial for addressing underlying problems thoroughly and making sustainable changes in thoughts and behaviours.

Setting realistic expectations and having open discussions with your therapist about the timeline can help tailor the therapy to your specific needs, ensuring a clear path toward healing and personal growth.
