Being able to suggest the readings and well-being resources, confident that the information is based on research is a relief.
I saved time and was able to give more time to my client, using the tools online. It was wonderful to focus on my client and not worry about the admin.
Having the Intake form done before the first session was so useful and made that first client meeting so much more useful.
The video conferencing tool is on the platform, so I didn’t need to worry about confidentiality.
