Check eligibility

I can’t recommend online CBT enough. Positive and thorough. I bought into it despite initial reservations and am thankful I did. Probably the most powerful thing I have every been part of. Literally life-changing.

How online CBT can change your life

History Icon

Understand how you think

In around six 60 minute sessions, your CBT therapist will help you understand how your thoughts affect the way you feel and behave and why they are often the brain’s reaction to certain life events or situations.

Learn new ways to cope

You’ll learn new ways to see difficult things in your life and gain powerful practical tools to handle the same situations differently.

Practice in the real world

You’ll take practical steps between sessions to try out this new toolkit in real life and then talk through your experiences with your therapist the next week. Seeing changes in your life will help build your confidence and develop new habits that last.

4 reasons to try CBT

(From people who've done it)

Not just talking
CBT is very practical and focused on my life in the here and now.
Jane, West Kent

The most well researched type of therapy
There is so much evidence that CBT works for many common mental health problems, which is why it’s so widely used in the NHS.
Barry, Glasgow

Convenient and no long waits
I wanted to get help from home at times that suited me, and not end up on a long waiting list.
Jorge, Rotherham

Typing rather than talking
It’s easier to explain things and get everything off your chest when you’re behind a screen, which helped me open up more.

Talk through typing

Wait, what? Therapy through typing?!
Online CBT is exactly the same as face-to-face CBT, other than that the conversation is typed on your computer. You’re still in a 1:1 conversation with a fully qualified therapist, usually for 60 minutes. The only difference is that you type your responses. It’s exactly like chatting via a messenger service with friends. You don't need to be brilliant at spelling or worry about using the correct grammar.

You might find online CBT helpful if you:

  • enjoy chatting to friends and family on social media or messaging services
  • like the idea of having a therapist’s undivided attention, without the pressure of being in the same room
  • need sessions at evenings or weekends
  • would like to be able to go back and review the advice you received between sessions and after the treatment has ended

Don’t be put off if you:

  • are not a fast typer
  • have never done anything like this before

My therapist explained everything so well. Being able to read everything back and message between sessions was also so helpful.
