Therapy from Your Front Room

Have you ever considered therapy whilst sitting in the comfort of your own home? As the internet becomes more established in many people’s lives, it is not surprising that more and more services are being delivered online. 

Outlook South West now provides live therapy online as part of its NHS commissioned service in Cornwall. With a basic requirement of a broadband connection and a web-cam camera, (which can be bought for a few quid), the opportunity to get some online help for stress, depression or anxiety is within reach of anyone in the county over sixteen years old. 

New Therapy on the Block

It may be confusing but there are a number of different types of psychological therapy. Many people have heard of counselling and cognitive behaviour therapy.  Another exciting therapy that is gaining popularity has the long winded title of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Mostly, it is called ACT for short, (as in the word ‘act’). It is exciting because there is growing research evidence suggesting that this treatment can provide benefit for a wide range of problems, such as anxiety, depression, addictions, insomnia and chronic pain.
