We believe that during this unprecedented and challenging time, it is especially important to pay attention to our mental health and wellness.

If you are looking for online counselling or therapy during this time, and if you are a resident of Alberta (and located within Alberta while you are accessing services), then you may be a good candidate for online counselling services.
Our team of psychologists use secure platforms and devices that are tailored to meet the privacy regulations of Alberta. Your psychologist will take into consideration your preferences for technology and will inform you of the options currently available such as telephone and video-counselling.
There are several possible benefits to receiving your counselling online including, working from the comfort of your own home, saving travel time, convenience, and more. There are also some risks to accessing counselling online which your psychologist will also discuss with you based on your personal situation, concerns, and needs.
If you’re considering accessing online counselling from home, you may want to ensure you have high speed internet and have a private room from which you can conduct your sessions.
