Financial worries can impact your mental health causing anxiety, low mood, stress and difficulty sleeping

Many people are feeling the strain with the cost-of-living increase. Poor mental health can affect your ability to manage finances and in turn cause additional anxiety and stress. If you are struggling with the effects of financial worry and would like to talk to someone, free online therapy is available via the NHS with ieso.

The advantages of online therapy

Like face-to-face therapy, our sessions are one-to-one and 100% confidential.

Unlike face-to-face therapy, our text-based online therapy has all of the following benefits:

Sessions take place anywhere

You do not need to travel to your appointments or incur additional travel expenses

Flexible

Appointments are available seven days a week, 6am – 11pm. They can work around your other commitments, so you do not need to take time out

Learn practical skills

Online CBT helps you to unravel you thinking and rationalise your thoughts. Using these practices in day-to-day life can help manage your anxiety and stress caused by financial worries

Private

As your sessions are typed, no one will overhear your conversation.

Free

Online therapy is available free to adults aged over 18.

Get started quickly

The time between sign-up and your first session is a matter of days rather than weeks.

What we treat

From trouble sleeping to anxiety to depression, mental health problems can affect many of us in different ways. ieso therapists treat a range of common mental health symptoms.




What people say

We've helped thousands of people feel better.
Here are their stories of recovery and growth.

I was initially unsure about online therapy and how it would work, but the rapport with my online therapist was soon built. I can honestly say that from the work I undertook at the beginning of my sessions, my progress, even over a short number of weeks, was really noticeable.”
Amelia, London
CBT was a totally new experience for me, and I had no idea of what to expect. It turned out to be helpful in understanding exactly the nature of my problem, and I was led to realise how best to address it.”
Linda, Cambridgeshire
It is easy to do because you can just use a computer from home. Appointments are flexible, even 11pm was ok.”
Kieran, Isle of Wight
I found it better than a face to face session as I had time to formulate answers. And don’t worry about spelling mistakes they are not an issue.”
Bruce, Derbyshire

Begin your therapy in 4 steps

You can refer yourself directly to our free service. Self-referring allows you to access online therapy quickly and easily without the need to visit your GP.

1. Refer and register

Once you've self-referred and created an account, complete your questionnaires, we will then find the best therapist for your needs.

2. Start therapy

Chat with your therapist. They’ll create a treatment programme designed just for you and will help you set goals, break down problems and change unhelpful thoughts and behaviour patterns.

3. Practise

Between sessions you’ll use the new skills your therapist has taught you in real life. Your therapist will track your progress using questionnaires before each session and target the most persistent and troubling areas.

4. See results

Your therapist will help you monitor change and target the most persistent and upsetting areas.

A supportive patient services team

Our team is on hand to make your experience as smooth as possible.

If you need help at any point with referring,
contact us directly by calling freephone:

Monday-Friday, 9am-5:30pm

People often ask us...

It’s natural to have an interest in your treatment. People often want to know what we do, how it works and whether it will work for them. Here’s our take on some of the questions we often come across.

How long before I feel better?

ieso doesn’t provide a pre-set number of sessions. We offer you the right number of sessions needed for your treatment. Practicing the CBT techniques you will learn between therapy sessions will help you feel the benefit more quickly. But, as a rough guide, we can typically address mental health issues like anxiety and depression in 4-12 sessions.

What is the platform like? Is it hard to use?

The platform is simple to navigate, so even if you don’t consider yourself an expert in technology, if you can surf the internet you’ll be okay. Our therapy is accessible via computer, tablet or smartphone. When you first log into the ieso platform there are helpful guides which you may wish to read before you start your therapy sessions, including “Online therapy guidelines”. Our Patient Services team are available to help if you have any issues with the platform, Monday-Friday, 9am-5:30pm.

How does access through the NHS work?

In many areas of the UK our service is free for NHS patients. 

You can quickly check here if our therapy is available in your area.
  
If it is, then you simply have to visit your GP to ask them to refer you to us, or – in some areas, such as Surrey, Doncaster, Rotherham or West Kent – you’ll be able to save time and refer yourself directly.

When can I schedule my appointment?

You can schedule an appointment around your availability, including early in the morning, during the evening and at the weekend.

How will I receive messages from my therapist?

As we’re an online therapy service, the communication you have with your therapist is through written messages on our therapy website. 

They’ll send you a message through the therapy website to set up the first appointment rather than calling you. Don’t worry, whenever your therapist messages you or sets up an appointment, you’ll receive a notification email. 

Using the email, login to the platform to view the message or appointment. And, if you’re not receiving notifications, check your spam folder.
