Online Counselling

BetterHelp

BetterHelp is an online platform for therapy that is delivered through live, secure online chat, phone, and video sessions. It can be a helpful treatment for anxiety and mood related disorders, as well as goal setting and personal development. It is a cost effective solution, but isn’t a replacement for in person therapy for some conditions or medical advice.


However, with plans that start at $40 per week, using BetterHelp for short term help can be a convenient way to get therapy that fits your schedule. It’s also a great way to try different therapy styles to find the one that is right for you.
