Video/Online Therapy

Our online therapy service allows us to offer help and support to people not able to access our service face-to-face. Online therapy is a developing area for counselling and psychotherapy, and is also known as webcam counselling, e-therapy, web therapy, internet therapy, video therapy and distance therapy. This service allows you all the benefits of face-to-face sessions with a therapist, via your personal computer and from the comfort of your home. 

Our skilled counsellors, psychologists and therapists will listen to you in a non-judgemental way in a private, confidential setting. They can help you with your current difficulties, past experiences or anxieties about your future with the aim of helping you improve the quality of your life and relationships.

Who might online therapy be useful for?

Sessions delivered via the internet offer a greater level of accessibility and convenience – if you travel for work for example, or have difficulties leaving home. We offer online therapy to people within the UK, via a secure and high-quality webcam platform. All data is held securely.

We can help with a wide range of mental health problems and diagnoses including the following:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety problems (including panic, social anxiety, generalised anxiety, health anxiety, phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD))
  • Depression and low mood
  • Anger
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Relationship problems
  • Trauma and PTSD
  • Low self esteem
  • Eating difficulties and eating disorders

What kind of therapy do we offer?

We offer a range of individual and group therapies in line with NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) guidance. All of our therapists are highly trained, accredited, experienced and committed to continued professional development. Many therapists have training in more than one therapy modality, and are therefore in the best position to offer tailored, individualised therapy to meet your needs, drawing from the most up to date, evidence-based interventions.

Please review our Online Therapy Service Agreement on a computer or laptop for more information. It is important to have a quiet and private space which can be regularly used for therapy sessions, and to ensure that you have tested your audio and video quality along with the speed of your internet connection. Please read our Technical Guidance on a computer or laptop for more information.

Online therapy is not a crisis service and is not suitable for people who are experiencing severe distress or any urgent mental health difficulties. In order to support you fully, we require your GP’s contact details before online therapy work begins.

How do I access video therapy?

You can access Video Therapy on your computer, laptop, tablet or mobile phone (you will require webcam and microphone access on computers).

 

Is Video Therapy secure?

Our Video Therapy service utilises 3CX technology for end-to-end encryption. All data is held securely and is completely confidential.
