Online Therapy

Therapy from the comfort of your home

Therapy can be delivered either in-person or online, depending on what works best for you.


Some people choose to have online therapy because they live outside of London, travel a lot or they have emotional or physical health difficulties that make in person therapy a challenge.


For others, online therapy can be a first step towards in-person therapy if they find the idea of face-to-face too daunting to begin with.

Online therapy vs in-person - how do I know which is best for me?

Ultimately, everyone’s different which means that different forms of therapy suit different people.


As a physical clinic first and foremost, we believe in the value of in-person therapy. This is because it creates a solid base from which to build the therapeutic relationship, allowing for a closer connection between you and your therapist. Some people find that being in the same room as their therapist encourages them to open up and helps them develop safety and trust in the relationship.


On the other hand, there are others who prefer to have their sessions online. They find that being in the safety of home comforts helps lower their inhibitions, making it easier for them to open up.


And of course, the convenience and accessibility of online therapy is something they value too.


At the end of the day, it comes down to finding what works for you. If you start having your sessions online but decide that you’d like to have the occasional session in-person – and visa versa – we will always do our best to make that happen for you.


How does online therapy work?

  • You will have your online sessions at a set frequency that will be agreed between you and your therapist
  • The type of therapeutic approach you’ll have will depend on the nature of your difficulties and what you want to get out of therapy
  • You can have occasional in-person sessions with your therapist if you’d like to
  • If your therapist makes the clinical judgement that you’d benefit more from in-person therapy, we will chat this through with you following your initial assessment, and make an alternative recommendation

Frequently asked questions

You are likely to be offered online therapy if you’re unable to travel into the clinic – and this may be for a number of different reasons. When we carry out your initial assessment, we will always make a clinical judgement as to whether online therapy is likely to be a good fit for you.
All therapeutic approaches can be offered in an online format. The number of sessions you will need depends on the nature of your difficulties and what approach to therapy we believe will be most effective for you. This can vary from short-term to long-term therapy.
