Online Psychological Therapy Service.
More people are accessing therapy online for many reasons, because it may be difficult to find the right therapist in their area, or they want to take advantage of the greater flexibility and easier access that can be offered by therapists working in this way. Recent studies have shown there is no reduction in the quality of the interventions, although understandably some people just prefer face to face consultations.
Robert Watson from Become Psychology offers Zoom based psychological therapies (mainly Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Cognitive Analytic Therapy) for a range of psychological problems, and also a specialist service for Sex Addiction and Out of Control Sexual Behaviour.
Robert has been practising as a Clinical Psychologist for seventeen years and has been innovative in developing a Cognitive Analytic Therapy Service for people who feel distressed or out of control in relation to their sex lives, including men who have sex with men affected by “Chemsex” issues.

What is zoom?

For example, an interactive whiteboard allows your therapist to develop collaboratively diagrammatic formulations of patterns of thinking and acting that may be limiting you.
Is it secure?
Yes, Zoom is encrypted by default.
Is Zoom free to use?
Yes, you do not even need to download the software prior to your session. You just click on the link emailed to you and you are automatically taken to your appointment with your therapist.
Do I need privacy and a good internet connection?
Yes, you need to be able to have your session in a place of privacy where you won’t worry about being disturbed or overheard. Your internet connection needs to be good quality.
