PsychologyOnline is free for UK NHS patients in many areas. Alternatively, you can purchase therapy sessions directly through our private service Thinkwell™.
Clinicians (including GPs) can refer patients to us for online treatment. In some areas, the cost is covered. In others, patients can purchase therapy sessions themselves.
Providers and Commissioners
PsychologyOnline works within the NHS or private organisations to offer convenient, accessible and discreet services for patients.
Our therapists are UK trained and accredited
We know that therapist experience is a key predictor of recovery. That's why all of our therapists have at least three years relevant experience and are BABCP accredited. We ensure strong clinical governance for our entire therapist pool (including mandatory supervision) and have rolling CPD programmes to ensure continuous improvement.
Evidence from our clinical trial
Our 300 patient trial, published in the Lancet (2009), demonstrates that our method of providing therapy via instant messaging is effective. It’s faster than face to face therapy — patients see benefit in fewer sessions and feel they can open up more easily.
"The online CBT was absolutely brilliant, you learn how to cope with something that previously had seemed insurmountable."
"I have had 5 sessions and it has made a world of difference. I had been wanting to seek therapy for a long time now but could not get up the courage to see and speak to a stranger in person."
"Your service is brilliant - all the pros and none of the embarrassment or hassle of attending a one to one session."
You can purchase therapy sessions directly through Thinkwell™, our private therapy site.
