For as long as we can remember, if we needed a service, we went out to a brick and mortar location to receive it. But, over the past several years, things have changed with the evolution of technology. Nowadays, if you need a counselling service, it’s possible to work with a counsellor from the comfort of your home.
It’s called Telehealth and did you know that Transitions Counselling offers it for all of our services?
In this blog post, we’ll discuss what telehealth is and why we offer it for all of our services at our Langley counselling centre.
What is telehealth?
Telehealth is defined as the delivery of healthcare, health education, and health information services via remote technologies. It’s healthcare services through your computer or telephone with a trained and certified counsellor or trained professional depending on the service you’re seeking.
Why should you consider telehealth?
This form of healthcare is ideal for so many reasons! Since the global pandemic, people have realized that they don’t have to go out for everything they do. This means people can remain where they’re comfortable (without putting themselves at risk) and still receive the services they’re interested in.
Telehealth is also a great idea if you have a busy at-home life and aren’t able to make it into the city for appointments. This option is fantastic for stay-at-home parents with little ones.
You’re able to easily book an appointment during your child’s nap time and receive the help you’re after.
A third reason why you may be interested in telehealth is due to the counsellors you’re after. At Transitions Counselling, we have handpicked the people who work under our roof. These people are the best in their professions and have received hands-on training when it comes to the way Transitions Counselling works with individuals in a wraparound approach.
Transitions Counselling is located in Langley, but you don’t have to be to work with our counsellors! With telehealth, we can help people all across the province of B.C.
You can browse our counsellors on our website to help you decide who you want to work with.
How to book telehealth.
Are you ready to book your first telehealth appointment? Simply visit our website and search the service you’re looking for. Once you know, click on the “book appointment” logo at the top right of the website. You’ll be transferred to our booking website where you can click on the service you’re looking for and the practitioner you are interested in seeing. Then, you can book via the “online” service options available.
A telehealth link will be sent to your email with information about your appointment. Simply follow those instructions at the time of your appointment and you’ll set.
What services are included.
For many companies, there are only one or two services available via telehealth. But at Transitions Counselling, we understand that life can be busy and getting into the clinic may not work for many of our clients.
This is why we offer telehealth for all of our services.
