Online therapy using an application such as Skype, WhatApp, Microsoft Teams and FaceTime has been proven to be as effective as in-person sessions, and with the added benefit of you choosing your surroundings and location. You can also choose a telephone session for your convenience.

Online therapy can be an amazing and worthwhile support system — particularly in a time of crisis. The growing popularity of online therapy offers an added level of convenience to the patient. Research consistently shows that online treatment can be very effective for many mental health issues. A recent study published in the Journal of Psychological Disorders found that online therapy is, "effective, acceptable and practical health care." The research found the therapy was equally as effective as in-person treatment for major depression, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, and generalised anxiety disorder, as well many other mental health conditions.

Some patients are choosing to alternate between in-person and online sessions, which allows the continuity of therapeutic work to fit into busy life-styles, and those unable to visit a clinic. Andy works with many international patients allowing anyone, and anywhere to access mental health support.
