Internet-based counselling is becoming as common as traditional in-office counselling. Wade offers a comfortable online e-counselling option of linking in from the comfort of your home through safe, Personal Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA; National), Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA; Ontario) and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA; USA) compliant video-conferencing platforms.
E-counselling might not be suitable for everyone. Online counselling might not be an option because some people feel less interested or less comfortable with the lack of the physical presence of a counsellor in the room. For those who enjoy the advent of technology, e-counselling is an accessible, convenient, and affordable means of receiving online counselling support.
