Heartfulness Consulting is now offering Online Counseling
Research shows that things like connections and therapy relationships are as effective online as they are in traditional settings.
You may have heard the term Telehealth and wondered what that means. Today technology has advanced and gives us opportunities to accomplish things in innovative and creative ways. In the past, Online Counseling was not available, therefore making it difficult for some clients. So what is it and how does it work?
What is Telehealth/Online Counseling?
It is the provision of healthcare remotely by means of telecommunications technology. Online Counseling allows clients to meet with clinicians through live and interactive secured video conferencing.
Online Counseling is a good option for clients who have difficulty coming to the office for therapy due to busy schedules, lack of child care, or for those who live too far from the office. Services are offered through real-time video and audio over the Internet. These sessions are private, confidential, and convenient.
Just as with in-person sessions, clinicians and clients will work together to build a strong therapeutic alliance to minimize symptomology and improve quality of life.
After assessing the comfortability and suitability for online counseling, we will collaboratively create a unique plan designed to help achieve lasting, long-term, positive outcomes.
