Unfortunately doctors are often hesitant to see an online psychologist for a number of reasons. We understand these fears. You have studied for many years, made enormous sacrifices to become a doctor, and the idea that you could not only lose your income but your career feels insurmountable. This is especially so when you are feeling stressed, anxious or depressed. We also know you worry about things like insurance and registration. It Is important that you know that we understand all of the challenges and concerns you face as a medical professional.
You can rest assured that our team of online psychologists are well aware of the complexities you face. They are here to help
As a health professional you need to be supported. It is important that you have a professional, confidential space to de-brief and share worries and concerns. Online psychology is a great way for you to be able to access this support at a time and place convenient to you. All of our online psychologists are fully registered and hold postgraduate qualifications in psychology (DPsych/Masters/PhD).
Whilst our online psychologists are qualified to assess and treat a broad range of presentations, we encourage them to focus on specific areas of interest. This ensures they can stay up to date with the latest research and treatment approaches and advance their skills in a particular area. Our online psychologists are most effective when they are delivering treatments in areas they are confident in, which in turn increases the quality of care you receive.
We know that you may be worried about confidentiality. You may have concerns about running into a psychologist in a professional setting or walking into a practice and bumping into a patient. As an online psychology practice you can be matched with an online psychologist who lives interstate, immediately alleviating some of these concerns. We offer you secure HIPAA compliant online therapy appointments
I understand that you have specific needs around confidentiality. We want to ensure that you access the support you need and are more than happy to discuss any concerns and work together to remove barriers to ensure you can access an online psychologist in a way that works for you.
