For clients who are not local, New Beginnings Barrie provides online counselling through a confidential, and secure video conferencing. This software is easy to use, free and it is safe. It has an AES 256 bits encryption security level. All you need is a computer, tablet or mobile device with an internet browser and connection.
Counselling is best delivered in-person by a local therapist in your area but online counselling is a good fit for clients who are unable to come in physically either due to weather, distance, health limitations or on ad-hoc basis.
Clients who do well with online counselling tend to be:
- Goal driven and action oriented: Clients in this category receive the same care and treatment given to in-house clients. Therapy goals are followed as defined during intake and subsequent sessions are scheduled based on the therapy.
- Able to create privacy for themselves: New Beginnings Barrie’s office is a private space where confidentiality is assured – you will need to ensure that your space gives you appropriate privacy and is free from distractions.
