What is Priory Connect?

Priory Connect is our market-leading online therapy service, providing quick access to highly qualified mental health specialists at a time and place to suit you. Once you sign up, your first session can take place within days. We can treat a range of conditions, including depression, stress, anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD).

We understand that time is precious, so we’ll quickly connect you with a therapist. Whether you would prefer to access therapy in your own familiar surroundings, are unable to attend a Priory location due to time constraints, or do not live near a Priory treatment centre, Priory Connect is here to help you gain fast access to high quality therapy.

Priory Connect lets you keep your wellbeing prioritised in and around your existing commitments. This effective service connects you with accredited online therapists over video, wherever and whenever suits you. Fit your online therapy appointments seamlessly into your week, with evening and weekend slots available.

As the UK’s leading independent provider of private mental healthcare, we’re passionate about supporting you to feel your best, each and every day. Just like our face-to-face therapy services, Priory Connect is intended to bring lasting change, so that you can better manage and enjoy your daily routine. Our experts will put you at ease as you become familiar with interacting together online. You can do this over a mobile app on your phone or tablet.

Your mental health deserves to be put first, no matter how busy life gets. We can help you get your life back on track with Priory Connect – online counselling that works around your lifestyle.

What makes Priory Connect online therapists different?

We know that when you invest in therapy, you want life-changing, long-term results. At Priory Connect, we are committed to ensuring that you get the best possible outcome from online therapy, just like with our face-to-face treatment programmes. Each session costs £124 and takes place with a highly qualified mental health specialist.

All Priory Connect therapists are thoroughly vetted by us. We also allow you full control over choosing your therapist, with individual biographies you can then select from. Our specialists operate through a leading digital system that has been purpose-built for online therapy, employing the use of questionnaires and safe and secure recording devices to enhance the value you receive from their work.

Priory Connect therapists have a wealth of experience in helping people to overcome their mental health challenges. They all have a minimum of a Level 5 Postgraduate Diploma in a relevant therapeutic modality, and are fully accredited with the relevant professional body. Our psychologists all have a Doctorate level qualification in counselling or clinical psychology and are all HCPC registered.

Here are some of the professionals we work with at Priory Connect:

  • Clinical psychologists
  • Counselling psychologists

We work with specialists qualified under the following accreditation bodies:

  • BACP - The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy
  • BABCP - The British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies
  • UKCP - The United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy
  • BPC- British Psychoanalytic Council
  • ACP- Association of Child Psychotherapy
  • NCS- National Counselling Society (Prof Accredited Route only)
  • ACAT- Association of Cognitive Analytic Therapy

Our specialists are trained in various therapeutic approaches. These include cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), and various third-wave CBTs, including dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and mindfulness, along with eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR). We can also offer interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT) and counselling, which is now a NICE-recommended treatment for depression.

Our specialists dedicate themselves to building a rewarding relationship with you, which is commonly known to be a key factor in achieving change and success in therapy. This is because many people feel more comfortable communicating with their therapist from their own home, finding it easier to open up and address the root causes of their mental health conditions. We fully vet all of our therapists during interviews at the recruitment stage. We also ensure that Priory Connect therapists always have a quiet and confidential space to conduct sessions.

What are the benefits of online therapy with Priory Connect specialists?

We have a thorough hiring process for all of our specialists. A clinical specialist will always be involved with selection at the interview stage, personally interacting with all of the therapists before they commence employment with Priory. Priory Connect specialists all deliver traditional face-to-face treatment as well as online therapy and counselling. They all have a wealth of experience in treating a range of mental health conditions, ranging in severity. These include depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), addictions and eating disorders, plus much more. Many of our therapists also have extensive experience working within the NHS.

We have robust procedures in place to adhere to all NICE-recommended guidelines for best practice, following only evidence-based methods. All of our Priory Connect specialists are part of the wider Priory family, so we don’t outsource any support or compromise on the level of service you will receive through online therapy. You can expect the exact same high standards with Priory Connect that would be delivered across all of our services and physical locations.
