Why does My Online Therapy offer only video sessions and not messaging interventions?

My Online Therapy aims to offer you the exact same quality of treatment in the online space that you would expect in a “bricks & mortar” or physical clinic. For this reason, we have chosen not to dilute evidence-based therapy models by offering either shorter sessions or therapy through messaging. If one carefully considers the evidence, all the research on a range of therapeutic interventions and their effectiveness considers therapy models that are delivered once a week for 50 minutes over a number of weeks. This holds true across presenting difficulties and therapeutic interventions. Whilst some research findings might suggest that text or messaging therapy is effective, none of these findings have come through randomised controlled trials or been conducted by independent research bodies.

At My Online Therapy we believe in offering our users the most effective approach for their difficulties, without cutting corners but rather offering you the most contemporary methods by the most qualified clinicians, at the convenience of your location and schedule.

Why should I trust an online therapy service?

Our online therapy platform is the only online service that is comparable to a physical clinic. We offer the same type of interventions through video conferencing that you would receive in a physical clinic by psychologists who are highly qualified, work as part of a team and receive regular in-house clinical supervision.

Does online therapy work?

There is growing evidence that online therapy works just as effectively as face to face therapy. Moreover, at My Online Therapy we ensure that you don’t miss out on any of the elements of the real human connection that is necessary for the therapeutic process to yield good outcomes by offering face to face video conferencing in real time. Online therapy provides the perfect platform to include therapy into your day to day life without disrupting your daily schedule – get matched with a professional psychologist now.
