How can therapy help you deal with the

​psychological effects of the ​pandemic?

There are many ways that you can be affected by COVID-19, even if you haven’t fallen ill with the virus. ​In such an uncertain and stressful time, difficult thoughts and emotions can ​arise. ​No matter what you’re feeling or how you’ve been affected, therapy is the most effective way to take care of your mental health.


You might want help with:

  • Feelings of anxiety
  • ​Coping with the loss of a job
  • Adjusting to working from home
  • ​Managing stress or sadness
  • ​​Feeling lonely or isolated
  • Dealing with fear and worry


If you have experienced any of these issues, a therapist can help. ​They provide a safe space for you to express how you’re feeling. ​They'll teach you techniques on how to cope with difficult emotions.

As someone affected by the ​coronavirus pandemic, a therapist can help you with:

  • ​Anxiety
  • Depression
  • ​Stress
  • Anger
  • Coping strategies
  • ​Life adjustments

We asked the questions you want answered...

​Can I afford it?

Right now, many people don’t have much money to spend on therapy. That’s why the government’s Telehealth initiative is offering up to 10 Medicare-supported therapy sessions per year for vulnerable people.

Our service helps you find the right professional for your needs quickly, easily and affordably. By choosing from OkToTalk's network of psychologists, you can get effective therapy ​that you can afford.

​What's telehealth?

​With Telehealth, you can talk with a psychologist by video link or phone call, no matter where you are throughout Australia.

For each session, all you will need is an internet connection and a phone, smart device or computer with a webcam.

This makes it simple and safe to get mental health help even if you’re self-isolating or in quarantine.

​What did other people think?

​To help you choose the right psychologist, we ask people to leave feedback after every session.

By reading about other people’s experiences, you can find a professional who suits your particular needs.

Think of it like asking a friend for a recommendation, ​only easier.

No matter your questions, we have answers. Read all the details on each psychologist's profile.
