Telehealth Video Appointments
If 2020 taught us anything it’s that many of the things we’d usually do face-to-face, can in fact be delivered remotely. Telehealth, or put more simply, receiving health services such as psychology via video conference, has become a very popular and flexible alternative to in-person delivery.
Why use telehealth video?
To begin with, people are loving the fact that they can see a mental health professional much sooner via telehealth video. Have you seen the waitlist to see a psychologist or other mental health practitioner in person lately? Some of the waitlists are 3, 4 or 5 months long.
It can be frustrating and disheartening to feel like you’re finally making a step towards feeling better, to then be told you’ll have to wait that long. Therefore, Telehealth video is the answer. Via video you could potentially see a practitioner in approximately 1-2 weeks, or even earlier.
Not only that, despite not being in the room together, video sessions are just as effective as face-to-face sessions. Plus, you can attend your appointment in the comfort of your own house, your car, pretty much wherever that suits you. You could even be relaxing on the couch with a cuppa, whilst attending your appointment.
Our telehealth software is extremely safe and secure, using industry standard safety, so you don’t have to worry about your confidentiality being at risk. All you need is the internet and a smart phone or a computer with a camera.
