Telehealth

Please be assured that your psychologist is available to help you even while you are at home.

Telehealth or telepsychology – is a term used for counselling that is conducted remotely – eg, via telephone or an online video – such as Skype, Zoom or Coviu

At Nexus Psychology we have been offering telehealth (telephone / video) sessions for some time.

Our clients report that online video sessions in particular have been of great value and our admin team will provide the information you need to help you manage with any technical difficulties.

If you prefer a phone session, or if you experience technical issues with online video – your psychologist will call your mobile phone from a private number.

A few things to note for your telehealth session with your psychologist:
  • Set yourself up in a confidential and quiet space, free from interruptions such as family, phones or pets
  • If you live in a house where it is not possible to have full privacy, you might need to get creative about where you have your session.
  • If you’re having an online video session, make sure you are in a well-lit position and clearly visible so that your psychologist can see you properly
  • It is best to wear headphones to minimise the amount of background noise, but don’t worry if you don’t have these
  • As per usual payment can be made at the end of the session by phoning our reception and paying by credit card.
Staying Present and Mindful

The current situation we are all facing is very difficult- there are a lot of things going on that are uncertain and out of our control.

In these times it can be good to focus on some of the things you can control like your breath.
