E-Chat Counselling

A Safe, Easy and Convenient Way to Connect with Someone Who Cares

We offer a safe, accessible, convenient and confidential alternative to traditional in-person therapy. Video or telephone services bring about the same benefits as face-to-face counselling, all from the safety, comfort and privacy of your own home.

Services are offered via video-conferencing or telephone. E-Chat is a great choice for people physical distancing, who have busy schedules, limited mobility, or who just feel more comfortable in a virtual environment. Please contact us for more information.

Our services are provided by Registered Clinical Counsellors and Registered Social Workers.

E-Chat is now also offering direct billing to ICBC

If you have been in a motor vehicle accident and have reported it to ICBC, you are now entitled to no cost counselling services. Individuals may receive up to 12 counselling sessions within 12 weeks of the car accident. If it has been more than 12 weeks since the accident, please contact your Claims Specialist for approval prior to making an appointment.

E-Chat Counselling can help individuals with issues such as anxiety, trauma, anger, fear and other problems that may be a result of an accident. We direct bill ICBC so clients don’t have to worry about the paper work or the cost of treatment.

How does E-Chat work?

The first step is to contact E-Chat for more information or to set up an appointment. Once an appointment is set, you will be asked to complete the Intake form and Consent form. Once credit card information is gathered or an E-Transfer is confirmed, an invitation will be emailed to you with a link to your appointment.

During the first session, the counsellor will review the policies and consent forms, explain confidentiality, and gather information about the client’s background and the presenting problem. While it may seem odd to review historical information when the problem is happening right now, it helps the client and therapist make connections and set goals for therapy.

From there, the client and counsellor proceed and adjust goals and the plan as needed. Some clients may have “homework” to complete between sessions to keep them on track, to learn more about themselves and to practice newly acquired skills.
