What is that?
Telepsychology has mostly been used by psychologists to work with people in remote locations where specialists may not be available. In this time of social distancing and uncertainty, we are now making telepsychology available across Alberta. We’re all in this together.
We meet you in a secure online ‘room’ over computer or phone. You see and hear us. We see and hear you.
We are together online instead of in person. Otherwise it’s pretty much the same. It’s like facetime or skype, but secure.
- Evidence Based
Online sessions can be used for most problems:
Anxiety, stress, fears, addiction, depression, parenting, mediation, and relationship problems can all be treated with online sessions. Research shows that online sessions with psychologists are effective – just as effective as in-person counseling.
Online sessions can also be used to consult with our expert psychologists if you have concerns about your child or teen. Maybe you wonder about ADHD, Learning Disabilities, Autism Spectrum, Anxiety, Depression, FASD… this list goes on. Maybe you don’t have experts in your area. Maybe you want a second opinion.
Here are some tips for your session and some things to have on hand:
- Quiet and private area
- Glass of water
- Paper and pen
- If sessions are with kids, markers and paper
- If sessions are with kids, hang around nearby in case we want to chat with you too
Stay healthy and safe. We care, and we can help. Talk soon.
