At Embrace Wellness Consultancy, we offer both face-to-face and telehealth counselling appointments.
Telehealth refers to a videoconference consultation involving communication between you and your clinician using both a video and audio connection. This is similar to connecting with family, friends or business contacts using programs such as FaceTime or Zoom.
Telehealth services have given those living in rural and remote areas of Australia the ability to access psychological services without travelling a substantial distance. The demand for telehealth services has significantly increased during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The Australian Government made new Medicare telehealth items available to help reduce the risk of community transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19) and provide protection for patients and health care providers. This initiative will be available for four years.
For more information about accessing psychological services via telehealth (videoconference), please read ‘Telehealth information for consumers’ on the Australian Psychological Society (APS) website.
