How we help your practice

Help your clients heal and your practice grow

You have an unwavering dedication to your clients and work tirelessly to help them achieve their best mental health outcomes — but you can’t always do it alone. At Psychotherapy Matters, we bring psychiatric services to your practice so that you can help your clients feel better, faster.

Psychotherapy Matters is a virtual care system that connects therapists and their clients with psychiatrists and family doctors for collaboration. We make it possible for psychiatrists to be virtually integrated into your practice, whenever and wherever you need them.

Since launching in 2015, we have consulted on more than 2000 patient care cases and supported over 300 therapy practices in our network. When your clients need a village of support, Psychotherapy Matters brings one right to your desktop, tablet, or mobile device.

Collaborating for better results, shared responsibility

When your client requires psychiatric intervention, lack of access to the right care can stall their progress and impact their therapeutic progress.

That’s where Psychotherapy Matters comes in.

Our easy, collaborative solution provides security, shares decision-making, and manages risk for more challenging client cases. Your clients benefit from receiving a diagnosis, medication recommendations or monitoring, and psychotherapy — without having to leave your circle of care.

Joining Psychotherapy Matters’ collaborative care community provides the support you need to treat challenging cases and the competitive edge to grow your practice.

Collaborative Care Needs of Psychotherapists

We did a survey of the therapists across Ontario. This is what we found:

  • 96% of therapists have clients that need a psychiatric assessment
  • 53% of their urgent-need clients do not have access to psychiatrists
  • 83% of therapists do not currently collaborate with psychiatrists

“The Virtual Clinic enables timely access for clients and therapists to obtain a proper psychiatric diagnosis and – if necessary for the client – to also obtain medications and follow up appointments. The built-in collaborative approach allows the therapist and psychiatrist to arrive at a shared understanding of the clients’ problems and needs. This further helps in the development and implementation of a complimentary psychotherapeutic and psychiatric treatment plan.”
