The expertise of our psychologists, even at a distance
It is possible for our psychologists to establish a helping relationship with their clients to help them find solutions to their psychological problems, even without a face-to-face consultation. This is why their services are also offered by teleconsultation. When you call on this service, you are taken care of by a therapist who is a member of the Ordre des psychologues du Québec, as is the case when you call on our home psychology services.
Here are a few examples of situations in which it is appropriate to use our psychological teleconsultation service:
- Self-esteem problems
- Professional difficulties, such as burnout, abuse of power, job loss, etc.
- Interpersonal or love difficulties
- Post-traumatic shock
- Parental support and guidance (attachment problems, discipline, etc.)
- Following a diagnosis or loss of autonomy, for the person themselves or for the caregiver.
As in the case of an in-person consultation, the psychologist first seeks to understand the nature of the psychological problem that prompts his client to consult him. To do this, he may ask you questions, ask you to talk about your feelings or put you in a situation. There are several approaches, and a psychologist will know how to select the one that is best suited to his client's needs and his own experience in psychotherapy.
A service adapted to everyone's needs
A psychologist can intervene to find solutions to several types of psychological problems. For example, people of different ages can consult a therapist via the psychological teleconsultation service. In addition, psychologists can focus their practice on a particular clientele or type of psychological problem. Thus, at Clinique GO™, we ask you questions when scheduling your appointment to ensure that the psychologist selected will be able to meet your needs.

Here are the steps to follow to take advantage of this service:
Make an appointment: by contacting our dispatchers, they will take note of your needs and assign you a psychologist who will be able to provide you with optimal support. The appointment is then scheduled within a very short time.
Access to the service: The teleconsultation service is accessible with a smartphone, tablet or computer. You must have access to a video call service. The psychologist will call you via this service at a predetermined time.
First consultation: During the first consultation, the psychologist will find out what the client's needs are. He can then provide some advice and work with the client to determine the terms and conditions of the therapy.
Follow-up: The next consultations and follow-up are carried out according to the previously determined terms and conditions.
In the case of a younger client when the service has been requested by a parent, or for an adult when the service has been requested by a third party, an initial meeting with the latter may be necessary.
