Online Therapy in the UK
There are many reasons to consider online therapy.
Your life may be hectic. You need mental health support but do not have time to go to an in-person therapy session right now. Or maybe, you do not want to deal with a commute or the tube to see a therapist. But, that leaves you with few options to work with a therapist in person.
Yet, finding time for counselling may not be your main concern.
You may be more concerned with others knowing that you’re working with a therapist. After all, people talk and word travels fast in your community. You may also live in a small village that has few options for therapists. None of whom may specialize in treating the concern you’re having. You need more options for counsellors so you can find a person who can best treat your concerns.
Time is of the essence when it comes to seeing a therapist.
So, your biggest complaint may be trying to find a therapist through the National Health Service (NHS). You don’t mind paying out of pocket for therapy. You just want to work with someone who specializes in the issues you’re having. And, can schedule your appointment quickly. All these concerns are grounds for considering online therapy. The good news is, online therapy is as effective as in-person counselling at treating a variety of mental health concerns. You can meet with me and get the support you’ve been looking for from the comfort of your surroundings.
Regardless of if you live in:

Change Works Psychological Services’ Approach to Online Therapy in the United Kingdom
As a skilled online therapist, I conduct online therapy in the same way we conduct in-person conselling. The difference is, we’re meeting over a secure video platform. These video sessions will feel much like talking to friends and family over Zoom or FaceTime. Sometimes, I’ll get creative to share materials like worksheets or graphics with you. For example, I may email you a worksheet to complete or an image to consider.
I take your privacy very seriously. So, I will go to extra lengths to ensure you know how to maintain it when you’re in your own surroundings. I will coach you on where to take your sessions. I will also coach you on what to do if you’re concerned about people or devices listening in, and more. Together, we will walk you through emergency procedures where confidentiality may have to be broken. This may include if I had to call an ambulance for a medical emergency for example.
Clients who meet for online therapy report feeling as comfortable meeting online as they do in-person. In fact, many prefer the online format.
