InnerVoice PC is now offering teletherapy, a form of telehealth. Also known as online counseling….So what does that mean???
What is telehealth?
Teletherapy allows practitioners and clients to visit remotely when circumstances prevent in-person sessions. This can take place using a secure video conferencing method or, if necessary, even the telephone. Video and audio platforms can be easily accessed using your smartphone, tablet, or computer.
Why we are doing teletherapy?
Our talented team of therapists are continuing to provide care and support through the use of teletherapy. Teletherapy allows you and your provider to meet during this time of uncertainty while honoring the public health guidelines aimed at protecting you, us, and especially the most vulnerable among us.
I’m not tech-savvy so will I be able to figure this out?
We want to make this as easy and painless as possible. We use a simple system where you will receive an invitation with a link to join. If you have any trouble, your therapist can certainly help. This process is new to many of us so we are in this together.
What should I get ready for my session?
Find a quiet private space with a good internet connection or sit close to the router. Put your monitor or camera a few feet away from your face as it will make it less awkward. If it’s uncomfortable to see your face during the session, feel free to cover that portion of the screen with a small piece of paper.
In challenging times like this we need each other more than ever. If you find that you or your family needs mental health support please reach out to us.
We are here to help.
