Digital Consultations

What is a digital consultation? 

A digital consultation is just like a face to face appointment.  You have a set appointment time with your therapist but  the meeting takes place via your screen rather than in the clinic.

Research shows that treatment online can be as effective as in person, with the added benefits of:

  • Quick access – with some options there are much shorter waiting times for therapy.
  • Convenience – no need to travel to appointments. Get support from the comfort of your own home – or anywhere else you prefer.
  • Ease of use – Digital consultations are simple to access and interactive, with lots of support for those concerned about their computer skills.
  • Confidential – we use a private secure platform so your  confidentiality is ensured
  • Covid secure Social distancing  is ensured limiting the spread of coronavirus  
  • Overcoming barriers – Easier access for  some of those who have a disability or long-term health condition

Am I eligible for a Digital consultation treatment session?

  • Most people will benefit from receiving treatment this way. However, do discuss this with us if you have any questions.
  • You will need to…
    • have access to a stable Wi-Fi connection and be in a quiet private space
    • have basic computer and internet skills and/or smartphone/tablet device.

How to make the best use of digital consultations:

  • Expect some awkwardness at first. It is OK to name it so that you can find solutions to any challenges. Make some time with your clinician to sort out any technical difficulties.
  • Be flexible with the format of your treatment – we may use a combination of sharing screens, videos or audio clips as well as sending you information to read through.  Do let us know what is most helpful for you.
  • Because it may be more difficult for your clinician to pick up how you are feeling online, they may need to ask you about this.
  • Don’t be afraid to give your clinician feedback. A lot of us are making a shift to providing therapy online and we all are relatively new to it and learning together is part of the process.
