Gladys offers online sessions for accessibility and ease of counseling support to all clients, despite geographical distance, mobility challenges or other reasons preventing access to face-to-face counselling. These sessions are available in video conferencing format as 1 hour or 1.5 hour blocks of time, depending on the complexity of the issue/s that the client is experiencing.
Online sessions are hosted by RingMD, a HIPAA-approved secure third party provider that provides medical and therapy access to clients around the world. To access online therapy with Gladys, first register as a patient with RingMD, after which you can contact her to request a session time. Payment is completed online at the time of booking the session.
If you are experiencing an immediate suicidal or psychiatric crisis, online counseling is not the best avenue for you at this time. It would be best to contact a local crisis hotline or emergency services at a local hospital, and then to access online counseling when you are experiencing greater stability in your mental health.
Face to Face Counselling
Gladys offers face-to-face or in-person counseling at the beautiful and serene heritage offices of Wortley Wellness Centre, a multi-disciplinary healing centre located in Wortley Village in London, ON. Free parking is available in the parking lot directly behind the Centre.
Booking a session can be completed by accessing the online booking option or by calling Gladys directly. Sessions are offered as 1 hour or 1.5 hour blocks of time. New clients are requested to arrive 5-10 minutes early for their session in order to complete the necessary paperwork. The paperwork can also be completed prior to your visit online.
Payment for session will take place on the day of counseling session, and can be completed with cash, cheque, debit or credit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover). Cost of session is available on a sliding scale fee, dependent on family gross income.
