Get Started

Sessions are private. Your employer will not be informed if you access this service.


I had such a positive experience having experienced anxiety for some time. The method of texting was good as it enabled me to have time to consider what I wanted to say and had time to reflect on the replies. The sessions were set at the time of day and pace which suited me. I found that I achieved my goals coming away with an action plan.

What is CBT?

Typed Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an effective treatment for a range of common mental health problems, including anxiety, stress, depression, PTSD, OCD, social anxiety, phobias, sleep disorders and panic disorders. CBT is widely used in the NHS to help people find ways to actively change how they feel and behave and our online CBT service is delivered by BABCP accredited clinicians.

There are a couple of short tick-box questionnaires which shouldn't take you long to complete, and there is one slightly longer self-assessment questionnaire which you'll only complete once. We use the questionnaires to treat you safely and check your treatment is working along the way

How CBT works

History Icon

Separate your thoughts

CBT helps you to deal more positively and objectively with the problems that are overwhelming you by breaking them down into smaller, more digestible chunks.

Star Icon

Break the cycle

Negative thoughts tend to reinforce each other and form vicious cycles. Your therapist will work closely with you to help you analyse and unlink them. They will interrupt unhelpful patterns and improve the way you feel and cope with different situations or problems.

People Icon

Feel better

You will learn new CBT skills that you can apply to your everyday life to prevent your problems from having a negative impact on your life, even after you have completed treatment.
