Our Services: Virtual Therapy in BC

We offer online psychological services at FTPS through a secure tele-therapy platform. We use Owl Practice. It provides secure video sessions throughout Canada. We offer online therapy through Owl Practice because it complies with provincial privacy regulations in BC and the rules of our professional college. The level of security should allow individuals to feel confident and comfortable when they take part in virtual therapy in British Columbia at FTPS.

  • accessibility of services from wherever you reside
  • benefits of working with a therapist in your own home
  • Allowing loved ones to join sessions, as needed


When engaging in virtual therapy in BC for CBT or other types of treatment, you will learn skills and tools similar to what you would learn during in person CBT services. However, you are able to access this platform from anywhere in the province. You can also work with an online OCD therapist that has the training and skills to help you, even if they live outside of your province.  This is an  extraordinary advantage to  using online therapy services. 

Online therapy at FTPS  is offered right across the province. This includes Vancouver, Surrey, Victoria, and Burnaby.  

Our therapists often use CBT techniques as well as ACT treatment interventions when providing online anxiety treatment and depression therapy online. The types of skills and strategies you learn could include:

  • Understanding connections between thoughts, feelings, and behaviours
  • Collaboratively modifying thoughts with your online OCD therapist to understand different perspectives
  • Gaining insight into your thoughts and understanding how they impact emotions and behaviours
  • Learning about thinking traps in terms of why they happen and how to shift our perspective from them
  • Understanding alternative or balanced thoughts to help impact emotions and behaviour
  • Discussing what is meaningful to you and how to build that into your life
  • Reviewing life goals and values and understanding what you feel motivated by 

Virtual therapy has been shown to be beneficial. We can use it for many different mental health concerns, including:

  • OCD and related disorders
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Depressive Disorders
  • Trauma
  • Emotion regulation
  • Relationship issues
  • Parenting issues

By reaching out to us, you will be able to work with healthcare professionals who have outstanding skills and training to provide treatment for these issues.

Treatment for anxiety in teens in British Columbia can sometimes be difficult to organize. Adolescents often have busy schedules, after school programming and require flexibility during anxiety treatment. Therefore, FTPS recognizes these challenges and meets these needs by offering online counselling for teens. Parents no longer have to worry about leaving work and ensuring their teen gets to an appointment on time. During online teen counseling for anxiety or OCD, individuals can easily log on from the comfort of their own home, on time and speak with an online OCD and anxiety therapist privately and securely.  This can allow teens to manage their schedule and engage in online therapy as it works for them.

When the FTPS team delivers virtual therapy in BC, we are able to invite other family members living in different BC locations. This is very beneficial for online adolescent anxiety treatment. For example, loved ones can join at the end of a session and learn about essential strategies taught to their loved ones. This can help parents or other family members support their teen or loved one within the home environment. They can also join at the beginning of a session to provide the online OCD therapist with important updates. Joining online therapy in BC that is conducted by an experienced psychologist or therapist is simple! Just log on securely and participate in the session!

OCD Therapy Online: What to Expect at FTPS

 It can be challenging to find appropriate treatment services for OCD and related disorders. It is important to ensure you work with an online OCD therapist who has great knowledge in this area. Our team provides tremendous therapeutic support for adults and adolescents experiencing these types of symptoms. By offering online OCD treatment in BC for OCD and related disorders, you can access treatment that you might not be able to receive otherwise!

We can also help you complete Exposure and Response Prevention therapy in your home by working with us virtually. This opportunity is important because triggers for OCD often exist within one’s home environment. You can work with your online OCD counselor to complete exposure and response prevention work in your kitchen, where you might fear using knives or touching raw chicken. You can also receive therapeutic coaching to throw out the garbage or touch cat litter that feels contaminated. Doing the laundry and using the washroom can also be triggers for individuals with OCD. 

We also offer OCD group treatment through online therapy in BC. This means you can access critical group treatment interventions in cities such as Vancouver, Surrey, and Victoria. You learn from the group facilitator and others with lived experience when engaging in a group. Hearing about others’ exposure work can be inspirational and motivating! 

During this type of group virtual therapy in BC, you will learn Exposure and Response Prevention therapy, cognitive skills, and mindfulness skills and engage in values-based work. Our online OCD therapists conduct groups on their own for people or alongside receiving individual virtual therapy in British Columbia.

Another approach our team used for  OCD online therapy is Inference-Based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. When you learn this type of treatment, your online OCD therapist will help you to shift the processing of your thinking so that you become able to trust in yourself and not your OCD.
