For clients who are not local, Integrative Psychology Services provides online coaching through a confidential, secure website called doxy.me. This software is easy to use and does not require anything to download. All you need is a computer, tablet or mobile device with an internet browser and connection.
While therapy and coaching can overlap, they are not the same thing. Online coaching is not a good fit for clients who require more intense psychotherapy, which is best delivered in-person by a local therapist in your area.
Clients who do well with online coaching tend to be:
- Goal driven and action oriented: coaching enables clients to focus on specific, non-crisis goals and get top-notch assistance in identifying a path forward and developing skills to reach those goals
- Able to create privacy for themselves: Integrative Psychology Service’s office is a private space where confidentiality is assured – you will need to ensure that your space gives you appropriate privacy and is free from distractions
- Looking for a specialist: online coaching brings access to highly trained coaches in specialty areas that may not be accessible locally, available at the time and place that is most convenient for you
