Online Counselling for Social Media Issues

If you’re struggling with social media issues, our counsellors are here to support you.

A counsellor can help support your mental health and help you set boundaries around social media. Wellin5 connects you with online Canadian therapists who are highly specialized in counselling for social media issues.

Social media is pervasive across Canada and the world. For many, it’s a fun distraction or a way to connect with others. However, social network use can encourage addictive behaviours. It can become a compulsion or need that interferes with your quality of life.

If you find yourself excessively using social media platforms excessively or feel harmed by them, social media addiction counselling can help.

Wellin5 is a Canadian company providing counselling for clients in every province and territory across Canada. Wellin5 psychotherapy, counselling and social work services are covered by most Canadian insurance providers.

Get Started

What are social media issues?

Social media issues are the negative effects that arise from too much or unintentional use of social media sites and apps. Social network addiction is a real concern, and professional social media counselling is available to support you.


Social media use can cause an increase in anxiety, unrealistic comparison of oneself to others, body image concerns, negative emotions, and screen time addiction. Therapy for social media addiction, provided by mental health professionals, helps to address these issues.

How can social media issues be addressed?

The negative impacts of social media can be addressed with the support provided by social media addiction therapy. Limiting screentime, remembering that what’s seen online isn’t always real, and setting real boundaries around social media are just a few examples. A counsellor can help you develop healthier social media habits.
