Your Guide to Better Mental Health

What is Virtual Therapy?

Virtual therapy, also known as online therapy, teletherapy, or e-therapy, is a form of mental health counseling that takes place over the internet. Instead of travelling to your therapist and visiting a therapist’s office in person, you can relax in the comfort of your own space and engage in therapy sessions using video calls, phone calls or a combination of messaging and video. These digital platforms provide a safe and confidential space for individuals to discuss their thoughts, feelings, and concerns with a psychotherapist or social worker.

Who Might Want to Use Virtual Therapy?

Virtual therapy is easy to use, easy to book and provides you with flexibility. It is an inclusive option for anyone seeking support for their mental health and emotional well-being. Here are some we have found especially benefit from the option of virtual therapy

Busy Professionals: It saves time. Trying to run home, let out the dog, have dinner and then run off to therapy can feel chaotic and counterproductive to what we want people to experience coming to therapy. People with demanding schedules who struggle to make time for in-person appointments can benefit from the flexibility of virtual therapy.

Parents: You are coming to therapy to prioritize your self-care. We want to make this as easy as possible.Parents juggling childcare responsibilities can attend therapy sessions without the need for childcare arrangements, making it easier to prioritize self-care. Our Therapeutic Coach works virtually

Students: Students dealing with academic stress, adjustment issues, or mental health challenges can access therapy conveniently from their dorm rooms or apartments. Often students have transportation issues also.

Individuals with Mobility Issues: Individuals with physical disabilities or limited mobility may find it challenging to travel to a therapist’s office, making virtual therapy a more accessible option.

Living in Remote Areas: People living in rural or remote areas where mental health services are scarce can connect with therapists online, reducing the isolation often associated with remote living.
Social Anxiety Sufferers: You are coming to therapy to help with social anxiety, yet coming to our office creates so much anxiety that it makes treatment almost a bigger barrier. Individuals struggling with social anxiety may find it easier to open up and communicate with a therapist through online sessions, reducing the pressure of face-to-face interactions.

Stigma Concerns: You might be worried that people will see you coming into our office. Our office is off the beaten track for this reason but people who are hesitant to seek therapy due to the stigma attached to mental health can benefit from the anonymity offered by virtual therapy platforms.

Expatriates and Travelers: We have worked with people all over Canada and the world. Those living abroad or frequently traveling for work can maintain continuity in therapy by accessing virtual sessions from anywhere in the world.

Teens who are resistant to therapy: Mind 2 Heart have used online creative approaches for teens who find talking or expressing themselves challenging. Our online platform offers a chat feature which often works so well for teens who are comfortable with messaging.

Recent studies have found that virtual sessions are as effective for individuals as in person especially for people looking for help with depression, anxiety, panic disorders and social anxiety.
