Why choose online support?
Access is immediate with no GP referral required. You can log onto the system from your computer, smart phone or tablet at any time of the day or night.
This means that you can slot your therapy into a time that suits you, instead of having to attend in person or trying to squeeze sessions into a busy week. You have the freedom to choose to complete your weekly therapy sessions in the environment of your choice and at a time that suits you.
We want you to be able to make the most of your online therapy. To benefit you will need to:
- Have basic computer and internet skills
- Access to a computer, tablet or smart phone
- Be motivated to improve your wellbeing
How does online therapy work?
Programmes consist of informative and interactive modules which you can complete at your own pace to help improve your wellbeing.
A supporter from Mid and North Essex Mind will review your progress over 6 weeks providing feedback and guidance. You will also have access to the session materials, your notes and support feedback for a year after you finish therapy.
The self help modules are easy to use with interactive tools and activities to help you think better, manage your life and live well. The goal of each module is for you to take the information and techniques learned – and to start applying them in your day-to-day life. At regular intervals, your MIND supporter will check your progress and provide feedback and guidance.
You can log on and start using the platform anytime.
