Until now there have only been very limited options available for online therapy. Computer-led online CBT, while effective for low-intensity treatment, has up to now not been suitable for delivering services to patients with more significant difficulties. Furthermore, studies have shown that traditional computer-led online CBT has an attrition rate of up to 75%. Attempts to connect real therapists with patients online have also tended to be limited to text chat, and online conferencing options have emphasised technology over an integrated clinical approach.
Moving Minds’ unique approach is to bring the full experience of face-to-face psychological therapy online using in-browser video conferencing while retaining the self-help features of traditional online CBT. Included are self-help resources, CBT and Mindfulness courses, a diary, visible progress tracking and peer support groups. It has been designed with an intuitive user interface that can be easily navigated by non-technical users, and patients are guided through with a tutorial at the outset and further help whenever they need it.
As a result, CBT and EMDR can be offered at a significantly reduced cost compared with traditional face to face therapy. This solution also offers choice, convenience, and a sense of control for the patient: they can book their appointments, fill in their diary, read their treatment updates, or access self-help groups whenever and wherever it suits them.
All the standard Moving Minds products are now available online, including CBT and EMDR treatment with BABCP therapists or psychologists, and counselling and COPE with our Counsellors and Psychological Case Coordinators. We are also able to offer simpler self-help packages utilising our wellbeing resources and clinician support through Groups.
