How Does It Work?
Online psychiatry starts with an initial consultation with one of our dedicated and highly-qualified psychiatrists. Within the initial consultation, assessments will be carried out looking at both your physical and mental health. This is all done from the comfort of your home using either your mobile device or laptop, depending on your personal preference. Online psychiatry is a fantastic way of getting the support you need without disturbing your routine.
After conducting the initial assessment with you online, our psychiatrist will then begin to take notes and proceed with a diagnosis (if applicable) and a treatment plan (also if applicable). This is your first step on your road to recovery. Types of therapies and mental health services that we may suggest include; CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy), counseling, EMDR, and/or medication.
