We are beginning to contact those with appointments already scheduled.

Telehealth FAQ

What is a Telehealth session?

A Telehealth session is a consultation with your psychologist held via a video-conferencing app or over the phone. Our Telehealth sessions are conducted much the same as a regular in-person session and go for 50-60 minutes.

To participate in a video Telehealth session with a psychologist you will need:

  • Access to a private space
  • A laptop or or smartphone (Android or iOS)
  • A reliable internet connection

Once you have a Telehealth session scheduled, you will be given instructions on how to participate via email
