Did You Know? – Possible Pitfalls when Offering E-Counselling Services

E-Counselling is a new and growing field that includes the counselling of clients using technology such as email, online chat, and websites. While there are many ethical and practical issues related to counselling people you have not met, there are certain key issues to keep in mind when deciding whether or not to venture into the world of e-counselling and how to protect yourself as a counsellor if you should decide to do so.

For employers, these issues are doubly important. Employers are liable for the acts of their employees, especially if they are providing services through the employer’s website and there is reference to the employer’s name in emails and contracts when employees are providing e-counselling.

More information can be found in our issues paper.

Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs)

Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) have become an important source of employment for mental health counsellors and in particular for CCPA members.

CCPA has put together a list of provincial and national Employee Assistance Program (EAP) providers.

Please note that these links are provided as a resource to help you in your search; CCPA does not endorse any of the programs listed. This list is not exhaustive. The information is valid as of November, 2011 and may have changed since then.

Talking Can Help Public Website

The Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association announced the launch of a new public website “Talking Can Help” during Mental Health Awareness Week 2012.

NewlogoTCH

This website is specifically for individuals seeking information and support about the profession of counselling and psychotherapy. The website raises public awareness of the role of the profession in mental health and wellness and supports informed decision-making when choosing a mental health practitioner.

The public can find information on reasons for seeking counselling, types of therapies and even tips on finding the right therapist for them. This website demystifies therapy and clears many misconceptions that might be keeping some individuals who are considering counselling from going ahead with it. This is a safe and anonymous way for people to seek answers to their questions and gain access to the help they need.

If you wish to receive flyers and/ or business cards from this new website to post in your workplace, please email [email protected] or call 613-237-1099 x 102 with your request.
