TELEHEALTH

Available from Anywhere for Everyone

Online therapy: At Psychology Experts, we have been working with patients remotely for many years. This convenient approach is helpful for patients living across Asia, traveling or to accommodate a patient’s personal circumstances.

Online psychotherapy is a valuable therapeutic tool. We work with people across South East Asia (Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Maldives, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand), broader Asia (Japan, Korea, China, Taiwan, India, Australia) and sometimes in Europe or America.

Due to the current global circumstances and out of concern for the safety and well being of all patients, Dr. Elefant-Yanni is only offering online sessions until further notice. In addition, working online gives the advantage of talking freely without a mask, which is a requirement for a therapist to really understand and connect with their patients.

Online therapy and counseling are delivered with the same standards and duty of care than face to face sessions.

Whether online or in person, a strong alliance with your therapist is the best way to guarantee positive results. So it is important that the person taking the sessions, whether a child or an adult, be fully invested in the sessions.

There’s a few things you can do to make sure you are as comfortable as possible for your teletherapy:

  • 1st session: you will receive a link via email to fill out your information and a consent form. It is necessary to respond to the questionnaire, including your feelings rating, as soon as possible. This information is important for your therapist to analyze in advance of your first meeting together.
  • Choose a place that is free from distractions and put your phone on silent
  • Have your session in a room where you can close the door and be alone for your privacy
  • Make sure you have a good internet connection
  • Connect your laptop to a power source
  • If you are using your cellphone, make sure you have enough battery and put on night mode to avoid disruptions from incoming messages and calls
  • Make sure your camera and headphones work properly
  • Be ready 5 to 10 minutes before the session to get into the mindset for your session
  • Get into the right mindset: give yourself 5 to 10 minutes before your appointment
  • Plan for 5 to 10 minutes after your session too: therapy and counseling can get emotional and you might need a few minutes right after.
  • Make your space work for you: adapt the lighting, sit in a comfortable position, wear clothes that you feel good in.
  • Noise cancelling headphones can help you get into the zone
  • Choose a room or a private space where you can speak freely. It is best if there’s no one else. If you have young children, ask someone to take care of them during your sessions.
  • Keep a drink and some tissues nearby.

Just like with other online activities, there are some basic security measures to follow. We use Skype for our online sessions, which offers a high level of privacy and confidentiality.

To minimize these risks we suggest to:

  • Use a personal computer with a password. If you are using a public computer or someone else’s make sure to logout.
  • Don’t use the same password across platforms and use a different one for Skype.
  • If you share your computer with your family or have a family Skype account, consider making your own Skype account for your online therapy sessions.
  • For your privacy at home, make sure the room you are in is sound-proof enough and use headphones.
