Online therapy

In recent times, mental health support has experienced a paradigm shift to include video, online therapy. Many prefer it to face-to-face counselling because it's more convenient and cost-effective. We provide both options, so you can choose what suits you best.
The basics

What is online therapy?

When we think about counselling, many of us picture a stuffy, slightly clinical office and a middle-aged therapist asking about your past. Online therapy, also known as e-therapy e-counselling, teletherapy, or cyber-counselling, debunks those stereotypes. You'll meet with your therapist using our video portal, which can be done on either your phone, tablet or computer. And great news - it's straightforward to use.

Just as therapists and counsellors in the "real world" have a range of qualifications and licenses, online therapists can also differ considerably in their training and credentials. Our team all have masters degrees and are registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

What to expect

How does it work?

Instead of having to drive to see your therapist and then sit in a stodgy waiting room, you can speak with them from anywhere in the world. Whether seated on your sofa, walking around the park or enjoying your local beach, online therapy is just a few clicks away.

Once you've registered on our client portal and booked your first session, we'll provide you with the website link to use in all future sessions. You can join on your phone, tablet or computer. Just make sure you've got a working camera and microphone, and you're good to go.

You can talk with your therapist as frequently as if you were meeting face-to-face: weekly, biweekly or monthly. If you need a check-in session between regular sessions, you'll be able to do this using our video portal.

Supporting your growth

Which mental health conditions are treated?

We're able to help with a range of mental health challenges, whether face-to-face or online therapy. Our professional team can assess and treat the following challenges:
Depression from any personal or domestic issues
Anxiety including social anxiety, separation anxiety, and other forms of anxiety
Obsessive-compulsive disorder
Stress and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Body dysmorphic disorder and associated depressive symptoms associated with this condition
Panic disorders
Different phobias such as acrophobia, claustrophobia, hydrophobia, and others
Chronic fatigue syndrome
Substance abuse, particularly alcohol and or drug abuse
Other mental health challenges
Following BACP guidelines, our therapists use cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), attachment theory and person-centred approach to assist with these issues.

Benefits of online therapy

Immediate availability

Online therapy is readily available for those needing support during a difficult time in their life. According to The Independent, about 122,000 individuals have to wait more than eight weeks to see a mental health professional. In such difficult situations, online therapy provides the right help without the long waiting time.

Cost-effective
Online therapy is comparatively cost-effective because the pre-requisites for attending are minimal. You can use your mobile, tablet or computer without having to worry about travel costs or finding a baby while you're out of the house.
Easy accessibility
Since online therapy is accessible using the internet, you can speak with your therapist from anywhere in the world. Neither do you need to be confined to a counsellor who lives near you. Find the right person for you and don't worry about how long it might take to travel to them. For those with disabilities or challenges leaving the house, this may provide an effortless way to get the right help.
COVID-19 pandemic
The fear of infection has brought about widespread anxiety and concern. Even as society returns to some form of normality, many are still cautious. As a result of the pandemic, psychological distress has increased from 19% to 30% in the UK. Online therapy gives you the support you need without fear of infection.

Why we’re best suited to help

Confidentiality and security

All meetings are end-to-end encrypted using DTLS-SRTP, which provides vital security benefits, including integrity, authentication and privacy. Learn more about the security, privacy and compliance of our video portal. This way, we can address your personal situation without fear that what you say leaves the “room”.

Highly qualified and experienced professionals

Our mental health specialists are highly trained (minimum requirement is a masters degree) and are registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). They’re also down-to-earth, friendly and approachable.

Home comfort
Our friendly and unique approach to therapy creates a unique experience for our clients. We don’t conduct our sessions like a job interview or police interrogation. We believe in a two-way conversation that comes without hidden agendas and provides you with the space to speak freely.
a personalised approach for every client

How does therapy work?

Schedule your first appointment
For most people, this first step is the hardest. You're not crazy. You're not falling apart. You haven't failed. Seeking therapy is not an admission that you're weak.
Learn what to expect
We want you to know what to expect from the therapy. It's nothing to be worried about but definitely worth learning more.
Attend your first session
The initial consultation is a "finding out" pre-therapy meeting where you can tell us a little bit about your situation and what you would like to address. We'll also ask you to complete some paperwork.
Make Enquiry
or learn more of what to expect from therapy
Whilst face-to-face sessions are available upon request, most are currently taking place online through our video portal. You won't be required to install any software, and it's straightforward to use. Learn more about our online therapy option.
In case you want it

Face-to-face counselling

If online therapy isn't for you, don't worry; we still offer face-to-face counselling. For whatever reason, you just don't fancy sitting behind a device talking to someone about your challenges. We get it.

Our check-in sessions will be through our video portal because they only last 20 minutes, but the regular, 60-minute sessions can be done in person. You could also go for a blended care approach; some sessions in person and other sessions online. We're happy for you to vary between the two when and as it pleases you.
