What Is Online Therapy?
Removing Barriers for Better Support
Online therapy is just like traditional therapy but with the flexibility to help you get the support you need, from anywhere you feel most comfortable. Research shows that online therapy can be just as effective as in person. Clients and clinicians meet virtually through a secure and easy-to-use platform.
Benefits of Online Therapy
Online therapy can take place wherever works best for you: from your home, your office or even on the go. All you need is a good internet connection, a computer, tablet or phone and a private place to connect.
Our platform at Renew is PHIPA and PIPEDA-compliant and provides secure online video, phone and text support for our clients. Rest assured your sessions online will be just as confidential and secure as those in person. Renew adheres to the same regulatory and legislative requirements as our in-person sessions.
More and more, people of all ages are becoming comfortable with technology, and connecting online is becoming increasingly common in all aspects of our life. For some, connecting with a therapist can feel easier online, especially if they are sharing private and personal information. We want you to get the help you need, the way that is most comfortable for you.
One of the greatest benefits of online therapy is that it removes the barriers for those who struggle to find access to the help they need. If you live in a rural area with limited resources available, don’t have the time or flexibility to travel to the clinic, have chronic illness or disabilities preventing you from leaving your home…online therapy is a wonderful option for you.
