Priory Connect - Online video therapy
What is Online Therapy?
Online therapy is a convenient and time-effective option for accessing mental health treatment. You speak with your therapist over the internet via a live video call rather than face-to-face, which means you have the ability to participate in sessions anywhere you like. This removes the need to travel to a physical location. With Priory Connect, you can begin treatment more quickly than you would with traditional therapy, as we can schedule your first appointment within days.

What therapy is provided?
We provide cognitive behavioural therapy otherwise known as CBT. This is a widely-used talking therapy that can treat various mental health problems and behavioural conditions. Online CBT therapy focuses on how our thoughts influence our feelings and behaviours, with your therapist setting practical tasks designed to challenge negative thoughts and beliefs. This helps you to develop healthier thinking patterns, to better manage problems and potentially difficult situations.
