Why do people in the UK choose online therapy?
While traditionally therapy was more commonly conducted face-to-face, the development of new technologies has led many people today to prefer online therapy. The treatment protocols and tools used by therapists are exactly the same whether in person or online, which makes online therapy in the UK or any other country just as effective as in-person therapy. In reality, people who choose to meet their therapist online have various reasons:
- Accessibility: If you live in the UK, you can meet with a therapist based anywhere in the country. Online therapy transcends geographical constraints, offering you a broader range of choices. Moreover, if you reside in a rural area, your options might indeed be limited.
- Convenience: With online therapy, sessions are more flexible, and rescheduling is much easier. You save time on commuting, time you can use for other activities. Life is busy; we understand!
- Cost-effectiveness: In this regard, not only do you save time on travel, but you also save money on transportation.
- Privacy and comfort: For some people, discussing their issues from the comfort of their own homes can feel safer. This, in turn, can lead to more honest and productive discussions with the online therapist.
- More options: Online therapy gives you the freedom to select from therapists across the UK, without being restricted to those based in your immediate area. Whether you’re seeking a specific type of therapy, like CBT or acceptance and commitment therapy, or need assistance with particular issues, such as anxiety or OCD, online therapy allows you to choose the best option for your needs.
What do we offer?
At Psychology Therapy, we primarily offer online therapy in the UK and worldwide, available in both English and Spanish. The therapeutic approaches we employ include:
Online cognitive-behavioural therapy
Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) is a structured, goal-oriented, and present-focused form of therapy. It is based on the principle that thoughts, emotions, behaviours, and physical sensations are interconnected, and as such, one can impact the other. With this concept in mind, online CBT aims to challenge and replace unhelpful thoughts with more realistic and beneficial ones. Simultaneously, it helps clients in changing their unhelpful behaviours, which also has an impact on their emotions and thoughts.
Online acceptance and commitment therapy
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is grounded in the idea that negative thoughts and unpleasant emotions are a natural outcome of the brain’s normal functioning. It aims to demonstrate to clients the futility of attempting to eliminate these thoughts and emotions and the high costs associated with such efforts. Instead, ACT therapists teach individuals how to manage them more effectively through acceptance, defusion, and mindfulness.
Online compassion-focused therapy
Compassion-focused therapy (CFT) focuses on developing self-compassion and empathy, particularly for those who struggle with high levels of self-criticism and shame. Through various techniques and exercises, CFT therapists work with clients to cultivate self-compassion, reduce self-judgement, and build emotional resilience.
Online mindfulness-based cognitive therapy
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) combines elements of cognitive therapy with mindfulness practices. It was developed to help individuals who have experienced recurrent episodes of depression and want to prevent relapse. MBCT teaches clients to become more aware of their thoughts, emotions, and bodily sensations in the present moment without judgement.
