To answer some of the questions you may have, a more detailed explanation of what Telehealth is and what you can expect during a consultation is provided below…
What is Telehealth?
The Telehealth service is an easy to use, convenient service that provides an exceptional standard of care regardless of your location.
Online telehealth refers to a real time consultation with your therapist via the phone or videoconference (via the internet). This online service provides an ongoing and high-standard of care wherever you are located and is delivered 100% virtually. For those who aren’t tech savvy we can arrange a phone consultation.
It is ideal for those who were previously unable to access a therapist because of:
- Time constraints
- Geographical barriers
- Physical limitations
- An illness
With the COVID-19 self isolation situation, it is vital that you continue engaging with your therapist to make sure that your immune system is as strong as possible and for ongoing health maintenance. Modifications to your lifestyle, diet and behaviour may be required as a preventative measure.
There are circumstances that may require the client to have an in-person appointment, however, the latest research has shown that online sessions are just as effective in addressing and treating the same needs. With many different tools and diagnostics available to a practitioner, you’ll receive the same level of care as in-person sessions.
Your privacy is very important, therefore all consultations will be held in a private setting and you will have the benefit of being in the comfort of your own home. All devices used for the consultations are fully encrypted to protect any information disseminated during the consultation, as well as blocking any suspicious internet activity.
