Who is Video/Phone Counselling Suitable for?
People who have a hard time leaving their home due to mobility issues or concerns with anxiety.
Anyone living in a remote area who cannot make it to an in-person counselling session in Maple Ridge, BC.
Those who want to gain more insight into their problem, build skills to work through their issues, and gain emotional resilience towards future life problems.
Are there any Limitations of Counselling over Phone/Video?
Crisis concerns, such as individuals fleeing domestic violence or those considering suicide are often best dealt with through in-person sessions and/or through immediate medical attention (call 911).
You will often get more out of trauma counselling if it is in person due to the types of interventions used. Doing counselling only on the phone may limit how effective you find counselling to be.
If you are struggling with psychotic symptoms (ie. hallucinations, delusions), video/phone sessions are not appropriate. Please see your Dr. if you are in this situation.
Phone sessions are not appropriate for those struggling with addiction to alcohol/drugs.
Talking on the phone and through video is not always 100% confidential. Factors such as the insecurity of sharing information across the internet on video/e-mail or the location of where you are talking may limit confidentiality.
For video counselling you will need access to a fast internet connection (Broadband) and a webcam.
