Telehealth: Room for Positive Change is now wherever you are!


Secure, confidential, and convenient service

Telehealth refers to a consultation with your health care provider using both a video and audio connection or via telephone contact. The popularity of using Telehealth continues to increase. If provided the option for video Telehealth servcies, are you among the 44% of Australians who would switch providers? Reports from the Australian Psychological Society state that developing a therapeutic relationship via Telehealth is comparable to face-to-face consultation. Likewise, the treatment via Telehealth services is reported to be just as effective as face-to-face appointments.

Benefits of Telehealth

  • Saves money & time, free of transport or parking costs
  • Accessible from anywhere in Australia with adequate phone or Internet connection
  • Comfort of meeting your psychologist from the privacy of your own space
  • Eliminates potential discomfort of attending a psychologist’s office


Some Potential Downsides of Telehealth

  • Some may have difficulty securing a quiet, confidential, & safe space
  • Some prefer the experience of entering a psychologist’s physical office space
  • Increased screen time
  • Poor internet connectivity
