About Online Therapy

Online therapy is a professional mental health and relationship counselling delivered via a video calling online therapy platform. In this digital era, mental health care should be as simple, accessible, and personalised as every other service. At Leone Centre, we facilitate this through our professional online therapy services, delivered by highly experienced, UK-based therapists via Zoom.

How Online Therapy Helps

Online therapy sessions are highly effective in addressing a wide variety of issues, including:

  • Mental and Emotional Health Counselling: Seeing a counsellor online provides a safe space to discuss your thoughts, feelings, and experiences with a trained professional. Through therapeutic techniques, you learn to manage symptoms of mental and emotional health conditions. Your therapist can also guide you in developing healthier coping mechanisms and improving your overall mental well-being.
  • Relationship and Couples Therapy: Online therapy is an excellent resource if you’re experiencing relationship problems. Whether you’re facing communication difficulties, infidelity, recurring arguments, trust issues, or other relationship challenges, our trained therapists guide you towards improved mutual understanding and healthier interaction patterns. Attending psychotherapy online also allows for flexible scheduling, making it easier for two people to attend sessions, even if you’re in different locations.
  • Improved Communication Skills: A significant part of mental health, couples counselling, and relationship therapy involves improving communication skills. Your therapist provides helpful tools to express your feelings and needs in your relationships and other areas of your life.
  • Increased Self-Awareness: Online mental health counselling and relationship therapy help you gain a deeper understanding of your emotional landscape, behaviours, and responses, which helps for personal growth and healthy relationships.
  • Managing Conflict: An online individual and couples counsellor works to help you manage conflict with communication and acceptance of difference. Disagreements are an integral part of the human experience; learning that it is ok to be, feel and think differently from each other can simplify and enrich your personal and professional relationships.
  • Privacy and Comfort: When discussing personal issues and relationship challenges, you may feel more comfortable in your own space, enabling you to open up more quickly and benefit more from the therapy process.

How Online Therapy Works

The Logistics

Online therapy simplifies accessing therapy and offers many benefits, including increased accessibility, convenience, comfort, and the capacity to connect with specialised therapists regardless of location.

As well as this, online counselling breaks down some of the barriers around traditionally delivered therapy, extending mental health support to people in remote areas or with mobility issues. It is also highly convenient for those with busy lives who can’t afford to lose the travel time to and from a counsellor. As well as increased flexibility with scheduling, Leone Centre online therapy sessions can be arranged outside typical office hours.

The Personal

Many people feel more comfortable sharing their experiences and feelings in their home’s familiar and secure environment. This can enhance the therapeutic process.

Like traditional in-person counselling, online therapy allows for real-time interaction with your counsellor, enabling you to communicate better, build a therapeutic relationship, and receive immediate feedback and support. This real-time communication facilitates dynamic conversation and can significantly enhance the quality and immediacy of the therapeutic process.

The Research

There are many studies examining the efficacy of online therapy. One research article, published in the Journal of Affective Disorders in 2013, discussed a randomised controlled trial comparing face-to-face therapy with online cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). The study focused on patients with depression and found that both methods were equally effective. Notably, the benefits continued to be seen at a 3-month follow-up.

Online Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) Personality Test

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a compelling personality test you can do online with a counsellor to identify your inherent personality type. Rooted in Carl Jung’s theory of psychological types, the MBTI categorises individuals into 16 distinctive personality types based on four dichotomous pairs: Extraversion vs. Introversion, Sensing vs. Intuition, Thinking vs. Feeling, and Judging vs. Perceiving.

This introspective self-report questionnaire is a fascinating tool often used in various contexts, including personal development, relationship counselling, and career planning, to help people better understand themselves and how they interact with the world.
