We are a team of practitioners who, like others, had to adapt quickly when the pandemic struck. Before Covid-19 we spent many years in a busy in person psychology practice in downtown Ottawa. Covid-19 changed our in person model overnight. Skeptical at first, we began offering clients therapy sessions online via a highly secure and confidential Video based Telemedicine platform called VSee. To our surprise, the online therapy experience took off. Clients reported that the video therapy experience changed very little for them. We received consistent client feedback that the convenience, flexibility and effectiveness of online therapy was either equivalent or sometimes better. Practitioners noted several clinical advantages as well, especially for individuals with anxiety, social anxiety and health related fears. These findings were also supported by telemedical research across North America and Worldwide. As the months went on, we began preparing for a return to the office and found that very few clients wanted to fully return to in person services. This is when we began to think outside the box and developed our hybrid model of care.
Today we are proud to offer a comprehensive model of psychological care that has evolved, based on client feedback and demand, into a service we would not have envisioned several years ago.
