PHONE AND VIDEO COUNSELLING
Who is Video/Phone Counselling Suitable for?
Anyone wishing to access counselling services, but wanting to social distance
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.

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).
It's possible that your counsellor may decide that in-person counselling is more suitable for your situation. If this is the case your counsellor will talk to you about alternative options.
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.
