Effective Online Therapy in Edmonton and Surrounding Areas

Seeking mental health care from the convenience of your home is now possible with the online therapy services in Edmonton or throughout Alberta. When you or your loved ones are struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, PTSD and other such conditions, but lack the means or motivation to visit a registered psychologist at their clinic, you can simply use technology to access effective treatment for online therapy provided by our Edmonton-based counsellors.

 

We offer individual and couple/marital counselling sessions, as well as EMDR therapy over the internet. Once you book an appointment for our online counselling, you can consult our counsellors, discuss your difficulties, and get personalized attention and treatment plans that facilitate recovery.

 

To make an appointment, please contact our secretary at 780-433-2269.

 

Advantages of Online Therapy

In the distressing times of the pandemic, online therapy has ensured continued access to mental healthcare facilities. Online counselling offers advantages like:

 

  • Comfort: Interacting online through a video call might seem more comfortable to you when compared with face-to-face interactions. Also, during the pandemic, those worried about exposure can feel comfortable without leaving their home.

  • Accessibility: With virtual therapy, you can easily access counselling services irrespective of your location within Alberta, or the availability of means of transportation.

  • Convenience: If you have a busy schedule, online counselling appointments can be more convenient for you.

  • Familiar environment: You can open up easily since you are in the familiar space of your home during virtual counselling sessions.

  • Cost savings: With online counselling, you can cut down on the costs of travelling to the physical clinic.

 

In addition to all the listed benefits, you can also be assured that online therapy is as effective as in-person therapy sessions for everyone from adolescents, adults to seniors. Read our blog to learn more.


How Does Online Counselling Work in Edmonton?

During the virtual therapy, our mental health counsellors get in touch with you through a video call over the internet to address your mental wellbeing needs. If you are considering online counselling from Gary J. Meiers, Ph.D., Jo Ann Hammond-Meiers, Ph.D. and Associates Ltd., you will need:

  • Desktop computer or laptop
  • Access to a webcam
  • Microphone or phone for audio
  • Chrome or Firefox downloaded (you can find instructions on how to install these programs on YouTube)

To make efficient use of consultation time with our online therapist on the day of your appointment, set up your computer, test the internet connection, and check the audio and video well in advance. You can also make your room as comfortable as you wish, for example, by keeping a box of tissues handy. Our online therapists will get in touch with you prior to the consultation with more details on how to create the most comfortable environment.

 

Privacy with Online Therapy

For confidentiality purposes, the conversation between a patient and a registered psychologist is required to happen in a quiet, secluded space. Since you are undergoing therapy from your home, you have to ensure privacy and comfort. Here’s what you can do:

  • Have the entire room to yourself.
  • Keep the doors locked to prevent interruptions.
  • Use headphones if you are comfortable with them.
  • Keep your phones on Do Not Disturb (DND) mode, if possible.
  • Close windows to ensure sound does not travel.
