For clients who suffer from anxiety, online therapy may be less stressful because it’s from the comfort of your home.
The unique format of TeleTherapy also make it better suited to certain therapy activities. For example children who are drawn to screens may find it easier to listen to the therapist and follow sequences.
Your therapists will send you a session plan so you can print and prepare the resources you will need.
On the day of your therapy you simply need to click on the link we will send. With your support, our therapist will deliver an engaging and quality therapy session online.
To participate in TeleTherapy you need a device (such as an ipad, smart phone or computer) and internet access.
