Is online CBT for me?
Online CBT may be right for you if:
- You want therapy which is cost-effective
- You want to get started quickly
- Your busy schedule means that you would prefer to work at your own pace
- You want a solution built on proven effective interventions
- Being treated from home (the office or on the move) suits you
If you have psychological difficulties related to mood, anxiety and stress, Efficacy’s online CBT therapy is designed to help you. We’ll design a modular programme to suit your needs and to get you better, so you’ll get real therapy with real results.
Studies show that the most effective online CBT therapies are like ours - programmes supported by a mental health expert. This means you have a friendly professional to talk to and guide you through the process rather than working through a programme unguided.
How do I know if online CBT is appropriate for me?
Not all disorders and emotional issues are right for online CBT. To make sure it’s the right solution for you, at the right time, we’ll arrange for you to have a phone or Skype assessment with a therapist. If the therapist thinks that another type of therapy is better for you, they will tell you how to access the services you need. If payment has already been made for your online CBT before you have this assessment, then we’ll immediately give you a refund.
How does online CBT work?
Once you have purchased access to the programme, we will arrange for your expert mental health supporter calling you to assess your needs and guide you over the first steps of your therapy, so that we make sure you’re on the correct recovery path.
Starting with an initial phone call, your therapist will design a programme comprised of individual sections for you to work through at your own pace. This will include videos, exercises and materials specifically chosen to help you.
Your supporter will then regularly review your progress and offer feedback, encouragement and guidance in six sessions over 12 weeks. These sessions can be over the phone, Skype or email.
We regularly evaluate our online CBT therapy programmes to make sure they are effective. As with all our therapy treatments, online CBT has the high levels of governance and supervision that you would expect of any Efficacy therapy. This means you can be sure that your treatment will be effective and appropriate for you.
