Video and Phone Counselling is now available with The Counselling Group!
Teletherapy is a way of providing and receiving mental health counselling outside of the counselling office. At The Counselling Group we use a secure and confidential platform to connect with you and provide therapy remotely. Our clients choose teletherapy over in-office counselling for many reasons, such as busy schedules, trips, or illness. You could access your mental health mental health professional from the privacy of your own home or from wherever you are.
Our experienced team of registered mental health professional consists of Social Workers, Psychotherapists and Psychologists. Our mental health professionals have the experience and capacity to work together with their clients to provide high quality mental health services. Our staff work with their clients to meet individual needs while building meaningful working therapeutic relationships using Teletherapy. They will work together with you to develop goals and supports that suit your needs.
Teletherapy is covered by most insurance plans and we offer services based on a sliding scale.
