The current restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic can impact our mental health as well as physical health. The lack of control over the situation, the uncertainty which follows the rapidly evolving situation can make us feel helpless. We can easily become overwhelmed with worry and stress about our health and the health of our loved ones.

At the Sport Medicine Clinic, we are committed to continuing to provide you support if you notice that your mental health is suffering and you’re overcome with worry, anxiety and helplessness. We are providing psychological services available via telephone or secure video-conferencing.

The benefits of video-conferencing and telephone counselling include:

  • The convenience of not leaving your home and thus following the Ottawa Public Health guidelines
  • The support of highly trained psychotherapists in helping you feel safe and comforted during these high stress times
  • The knowledge that you are under the care of mental health professionals who are committed to teaching you effective coping strategies in resolving your current challenges.
