All psychological therapies that are available in person at the clinic can be delivered on-line.
Therapy on-line might be more convenient for you if you are unable to travel to the clinic either due to emotional or physical health difficulties, work commitments, or living outside Taunton.
Sometimes on-line therapy can be a first step towards having face-to-face therapy if the latter feels too anxiety provoking.
All of the psychologists, psychotherapists and counsellors at Prometheus Psychological Therapy Centre offer on-line sessions. Agreement about whether this intervention is appropriate to the nature of your difficulties will be made after the initial assessment over an on-line assessment.
What can I expect if I receive therapy online?
- You would receive sessions with your therapist on-line (this is an encrypted service for your security) at a set frequency that will be agreed between you and your therapist.
- The type of therapeutic approach used will depend on the nature of your difficulties, what you want to get out of therapy and therefore which approach might be most indicated on the basis of an initial assessment and formulation of your difficulties.
- You can have occasional face-to-face sessions with your therapist if this is desirable and practically possible for you.
- If your therapist makes the clinical judgement that on-line therapy isn’t appropriate due to the nature of your presenting difficulties or any other complicating factors then they will communicate this to you as part of their assessment and make an alternative recommendation.
