Online consultation in psychology: a valuable support during the crisis

A online consultation in psychology with a psychologist

These difficult times bring uncertainty and negative emotions. Anxiety, loneliness and anger are emotions that threaten us all. However, because of their current precarious or difficult social situation, or because of their predisposition to psychological disorders, some people are more exposed to the repercussions of this period of health crisis and confinement. In this sense, it is more than relevant to remember that psychological resources exist to help us get through the crisis and to deal with the problems it brings up within us. These include our online consultation in psychology service.

 

Professional services offered at a distance

In the current context where social distancing is the watchword, teleconsultation services provide access to qualified professionals in the health and social services field. Among these, we find, among others, the psychologists of Clinique GO™.

 

Our professionals are members of the Ordre des psychologues du Québec. Their practice is therefore certified and their skills are recognized, as are the professionals who offer their services in the public network or in private clinics. Thus, even through teleconsultation, you can consult a highly qualified psychologist to intervene and support you in your particular situation.

 

Isolation and its psychological effects

The social isolation to which we are forced makes us live in the present moment. This can bring to light difficulties that are usually muted or pushed aside in the daily routine. For example, being socially isolated can amplify psychological problems that we have not taken the time to deal with or that have been pushed out of our minds.

 

We realize that in this regard, crisis can be a trying time, but why not seize this opportunity for personal growth? Indeed, this collective moment of pause can be a good opportunity to withdraw into ourselves in order to pay special attention to our mental health.

 

In what contexts should a psychologist be used?

A psychologist can be an extremely relevant support to untangle situations that resurface and to help us deal with the feelings they provoke in us. Here are several examples of situations in which it is appropriate to seek the help of a psychologist.

 

Context of individual intervention

  • Emotional dependence;
  • Lack of self-esteem;
  • Sexual dysfunction;
  • Relationship problems;
  • Anxiety about the health crisis.

 

Context of intervention in couples

  • Difficulties in the love relationship;
  • Separation/divorce.

 

How to use the online consultation in psychology service?

Do you recognize yourself in the examples of intervention contexts mentioned above? If so, do not hesitate to call upon our psychologists via teleconsultation. If you have access to a computer or a mobile device equipped with a videoconferencing service, you can benefit from psychological expertise. Online consultation in psychology is a versatile service, adapted to many types of needs. In addition, since this service does not involve travel for our professionals, it is offered at a cost that is lower, in many cases, than face-to-face consultations.

 

Don’t hesitate to get the help you need to get through the crisis we are going through. It is particularly important to take care of our psychological health and, to do so, a psychologist will be able to offer you personalized advice entirely at a distance!
