Hi does anyone know if you can get online counselling? If so is it any good and does anyone know a good online website to look please?

Moodjuice is quite good

It’s not so much counselling, but CBT

Thank you, I will have a look.

Relate do online counselling. It is quite expensive.

A lot of counsellors use Skype too.

You can access the NHS Wellbeing service. It's self referral and you can do an online CBT course with it. I'm using it at the moment.

clrobson86 Fri 10-Nov-17 20:28:51 not really posted on here ever. So sorry if the link doesn't work. I got told about these guys and I have someone who I can message anytime to talk about things. Maybe worth a look? smile

Can'tGetNo - it's early days so too soon to make a judgement on how effective the NHS online system is. I've only done the first module and found it a bit slow going and obvious. I think you have to jump through a few hoops to get to the useful bit?

I self referred to a local MH unit. Waiting to start online CBT too, programme is called Silvercloud. Will let you know after these 2-3 weeks on the waiting list hmmconfused

CantGetNoSleeeeeeep Sat 11-Nov-17 09:27:23

Yes silver cloud that’s what I’m waiting for!

SureIusedtobetaller Sat 11-Nov-17 09:33:09

How is there a waiting list for an online service?!

AnnaL82 Sat 11-Nov-17 10:47:41

Because every week after completing the module you fill in a questionnaire and based on that a therapist reviews your progress and sends you messages, apparently

CantGetNoSleeeeeeep Sat 11-Nov-17 16:59:53

If silver cloud isn’t helping the guy said then you can access group courses via the therapist online assessment. He said after module 5 the therapist would do a review over the telephone if I preferred sounds okay

Oh I see thank you.
