This means no more travelling to sessions, and sessions fit into your busy schedule. Instead, you can have your sessions when your children are in bed, or when you have finished a long day at work, or over a weekend with a cup of coffee next to you.
Service reviews show us that these treatments are as effective as face-to-face treatments, and we are very pleased to be able to offer you this option. You can start right now.
You will complete a series of guided modules about the difficulties you are experiencing, with a highly interactive and informative online space to help you reflect and learn and recover. You can do this at a time of your choosing, or as often as you would like during the week. Your therapist will arrange a regular check in time with you in the week, at which time you can get feedback, ask questions and address your concerns. Not in or can’t plan? Don’t worry, your therapist can see what you have done or the difficulties you have had by looking at the information you submitted online, and can leave ideas with you online that you can check any time.
The online cognitive behavioural programme has separate programmes to treat anxiety, depression or stress. It has a set of interactive modules for each programme which you can customise to use your way.
Computer-based sessions which you can work though at your own pace. Each programme provides a series of tools, activities and education on anxiety, depression or stress delivered in a safe and confidential space. You are encouraged to complete a 30-40 minute session once per week over an 8-10 week period. Activities completed between sessions are an essential part of the programme.
A dedicated Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner (PWP) monitors your progress through your programme, providing guidance and encouragement via regular reviews. You will share content with your PWP which allows them to respond to you in a more personal way and provide guidance that is relevant to you. The platform also supports the secure exchange of messages between you and your supporter.
We will provide you with an activation link to enable you to access the programme from home. We may also give you some telephone support while you work through the programme. The following information gives more detail on what is involved in the anxiety, depression and stress programmes.
