(TAC) Technology Assisted Counselling
With the COVID-19 pandemic occurring, I would encourage new and existing clients to strongly consider TAC for their upcoming appointments as a preventative measure. Please do not come into the office if you are sick or have had known exposure to illness recently. I am seeing clients in person but appreciate if you are not comfortable or well enough to come into the office.
What Are the Benefits of TAC?
What Are the Downsides of TAC?
Please take some time to consider the benefits as well as potential downsides for you personally before deciding whether to proceed with TAC. The relationship with your therapist is an essential part of the counselling process so it is important that you have a modality that allows you to experience this connection.
What Issues Are Addressed Using TAC?
For those who are new to TAC counselling, those who may have spent limited time self-developing and reflecting, are experiencing more severe issues, and/or have multiple challenges they are dealing with, TAC counselling may be a longer, more intensive process.
At Sana Psychological, TAC is currently offered using phone or online video conferencing using software that is encrypted and privacy compliant based on the standards of my provincial licensing body. If you decide to proceed with TAC, you will be provided an additional consent form for TAC services that outlines more specifics around the process, logistics, pros and cons. You will also be provided clear directions on how to access services when you choose this option.
