With so many different therapy methods, it can be difficult to understand what these techniques involve, and which is best for you.

Although face-to-face therapy such as CBT and CFT are commonplace, research has shown that online forms of these counselling methods can be just as effective.

For those who live further afield from our clinics, or who are unable for any other reason to have in-person sessions, our experienced therapists at Newcastle Psychologist provide online counselling via Skype, Facetime and Zoom.

Whatever challenges you are facing, there are many types of online therapy that can help you cope with your specific issues.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is designed to help individuals to identify and challenge their negative thought patterns, and learn effective coping skills for daily life.

As a form of talking therapy, CBT works well as online counselling, and is well suited to help people with issues including depression, insomnia, trauma and PTSD, and anxiety.

Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) 

Showing and receiving compassion is at the core of CFT, which is another common online therapy technique.

Compassion Focused Therapy helps to reduce issues related to self-esteem, confidence, and feelings of guilt and shame, by helping individuals to develop skills that can increase self-acceptance.

Relationship Counselling

For those with problems within their relationship, couples counselling can help you strengthen your relationship.

Our therapists provide a confidential & supportive online therapy environment where you and your partner can work through difficulties such as attachment, jealousy, affairs, and trust issues.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

If you’re struggling to let go of negative thoughts, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) is another technique for online therapy that can help with a range of problems.

Our ACT therapists will help you to develop flexible thinking patterns, which can enable you to break unhelpful thinking patterns, and cease ruminating on intrusive thoughts.
