Practitioner support FAQs

How does practicing using GreenShield's platform differ from practicing using Employee Assistance Programs (EAP)?

GreenShield offers workplace mental health resources and support to Canadian organizations. Contracts with these organizations vary, from promoting our services so that employees have easy access to our platform to match with their ideal care provider and use their benefits or paying out of pocket for sessions to complete EAP services where the employer may cover a number of sessions with an GreenShield practitioner.

GreenShield promotes continuity of care and does not cap the number of sessions clients can receive, ensuring that providers can support their clients through their counselling journey.

Practitioners are paid for video and in-person sessions, regardless of whether clients who need mental health support sign up with us directly or through their employer. Ideally, practitioners see all of their clients through to recovery.

Where do GreenShield’s clients come from?

GreenShield clients come from many sources. They visit our website directly via healthcare professional recommendations, word of mouth, or online search.

‍We also partner with organizations in Canada to provide mental health services to their employees. These partnerships vary, with some organizations promoting our service so their employees can easily access help and use their benefits to cover sessions. Others may provide some free sessions and then encourage employees to use their benefits or pay out of pocket for further sessions with the same practitioner.

How does video counselling compare to face-to-face counselling?

Therapy is a personal experience; one treatment approach can’t fit everyone’s needs. Some people may find a screen distracting and in-person communication comforting. In contrast, others may not notice or find it easier to express themselves with some separation from their counsellor. The comfort and convenience of connecting with a client from your home office are also unique to video counselling.

Our service has important non-therapeutic benefits, such as easy accessibility, lower overhead costs, and being matched with clients not located nearby but seeking your particular areas of specialization.
