Can Online Therapy Help With the Same Issues as In Person Therapy?

The short answer is yes. These are just a few of the issues and problems that we address by combining talk therapy, tools, assignments and technology to help you construct your path forward and make a difference – all from the safety of your home:

Online Couples Counseling

Our expert online couples’ counsellors are pros at helping you understand and recognize what’s not working in your relationship. We provide expert online therapist advice on what a healthy relationship is and, ‘how to’ treatment plans to help you achieve one. Our virtual relationship counselling will help you recognize harmful relationship patterns and provide you with proactive solutions and tips on how to make the changes you need to make in order to have the love, connection and closeness you deserve.

Phobias

Our online therapists can help you understand and manage your specific phobia. Exposure therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy are a couple of the most effective treatments. Exposure therapy focuses on changing your response to the object or situation that you fear. Both modalities, when combined, lend themselves well to the online therapeutic experience at Psych Company.

Stress and anxiety

Stress and anxiety can play an important role in our lives. In the short term, they can help you overcome a challenge or a dangerous situation. Examples of everyday stress and anxiety include worrying about how you are doing at work, having the jitters before speaking in public, or being overly self conscious in social situations. If we did not experience some anxiety we might not be motivated to take the steps that are necessary to help us grow personally or professionally (for instance, going for that promotion!). We will help you manage your stress levels while helping you learn how to capitalize and use your stress and anxiousness to your advantage. Our online psychotherapists will also teach you the tools to manage any harmful anxiety and stress you may be experiencing.

Career counselling

It’s not just a cliché that times have changed and the days of only working at one company, retiring and living happily ever after, are figments of the past. Now we’ve got to compete for jobs with many more competitors than ever before thanks to technology and online tools like LinkedIn and Indeed. The pace at which skills are evolving is also enough to cause a lot of strain and stress. How do I keep up with all of this? Creating a career portfolio is one of the answers to this and of course building your brand. The members of our team are very passionate about this topic and can’t wait to discuss the strategy and roadmap for your new career or career change.

Grief

Grief is the psychological-emotional experience following a loss of any kind (relationship, status, job, house, game, income, etc). In these trying times, especially with the health crisis, people across the world have lost a sense of normalcy, which has, in turn, caused all a variety of other problems for us like stress, anxiety, boredom, loneliness from self-isolation etc. Our online therapists are experts at helping you work through the stages of grief.

Addictions

Many, if not all of us, suffer from one type of addiction or another. From drug and alcohol abuse, to Netflix, or work addictions, our team members are equipped and ready to help you! Addiction is actually a psychological and physical inability to stop consuming something even though it is causing psychological and physical harm. In these circumstances, a person has a behavioral addiction. Addiction is a chronic disease that can also result from taking medications. Do not let this problem get the better of you – reach out to us now, someone strong in this field and who cares is waiting to meet you!

Depression

I’ve heard it said that we all suffer from depression at some point in our lives. There are different degrees of depression and different situations that can cause or exacerbate it. Our virtual therapists are skilled at listening and helping you pinpoint the underlying factors and root causes of your depression. We will come up with a go forward plan to manage and reduce the dark feelings that you are experiencing.

Self-esteem

Generally, the word “self-esteem” is used to describe a person’s overall sense of self-worth or personal value. It is another way of saying ‘how much you appreciate and like yourself’. Self-esteem is often considered a personality trait, which means that it tends to be integral to our overall well being and ability to function. Self esteem is not what Stewart Smally from the 90’s Saturday Night Live episodes used to project while sitting on the edge of his bed looking at a full size mirror repeating how much he liked himself; that was just comedic. We will put you through real world exercises and arm you with practical tools for building this core trait so important for success at home and at work.

Anger

Anger is an emotion marked by antagonism toward someone or something you feel has deliberately wronged you. Anger can be positive to have in our lives so long as it is not the dominant emotion that you feel. It can give you a way to express negative feelings, for example, or motivate you to find solutions to problems, such as defining and setting up boundaries. Our online therapists are highly trained and ready to help you address your challenges and assist you in channeling this emotion towards positive goals.
