I use Owl Practice for my practice management system which is PIPEDA & PHIPA-compliant online video conferencing application that can be accessed by computers and cell phones.
It allows you, the client, to do sessions from locations other than my office, which might offer you greater convenience and flexibility. I can also take on clients anywhere in Nova Scotia.
You do not need to download anything! All you will need is access to the portal or you can sign-up on your own: https://oab.owlpractice.ca/wilsoncounselling. Currently because my case load is full new clients will not be able to book.
