Shift Psychological’s online counselling service looks to provide you with the highest convenience with the same unique Shift therapy you’d get if you came in. We have found that the online experience is consistent with the therapy sessions you receive in person, with many existing clients utilizing this option exclusively. All virtual therapy is provided by psychologists located in Edmonton and Calgary, Alberta and registered with the College of Alberta Psychologists. We use superior-quality, HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act)-compliant video conferencing to connect with you on your existing computer, laptop, iPad, or iPhone for counselling online.
What does all this mean?! It means we take enough care to know that Skype online counselling sessions aren’t secure enough for the delicate information dredged up in therapy and that a whole-room view of your psychologist makes the experience feel more authentic than staring at a floating head during your virtual session. So, no matter where you are located in Alberta, you’ll feel like our Shift psychologist is right in the room with you for your online therapy session.
