You want to start counselling. But, that’s not as easy as it sounds. You might live outside of Winnipeg. Or, you might live anywhere from Churchill to Emerson. It can be hard to find decent mental health resources available to you.

It’s hard to find a counsellor when you or a loved one need mental health support. I grew up in a small town. So, I get it. Outside of Winnipeg, there’s not always a lot of choice for many of us.

Also, with Covid-19, you may not be comfortable meeting with a therapist in person. Or, maybe you’re vulnerable to infection. So going to a counselling office isn’t worth the risk. You might just more comfortable with counselling from the comfort of your own home.

Is Online Therapy Effective?

Online therapy can be as effective as face-to-face counselling. In fact, it may be preferred for people with specific mental health issues and specific needs.

Research on the effectiveness of online counselling was published in 2018. The Journal of Psychological Disorders found that online counselling was as equally effective as in-person counselling for major depression, and anxiety disorders. With online therapy, you can expect the same warmth and understanding you expect with in-person counselling.

We’ve been providing online therapy in Manitoba for several years- long before Covid-19. Our clients have successfully worked through mental, emotional, and behavioural struggles with online therapy.
