Does online counselling really work?
Online therapy is popular for good reason. Recent research shows, for example, that online CBT therapy is as effective as in-person treatment when it comes to depression and anxiety .
Of course effective therapy requires an effective therapist. At Harley Therapy we offer a team who are hand selected for their expertise and passion. Trained at top institutions, they offer a minimum of seven years experience working with clients.
Choosing an online therapist
Overwhelmed with choosing a type of online therapy? Our therapists are also all 'integrative'. So you are investing in someone with training in not just one but several different therapeutic approaches, meaning they can tailor their approach to match your needs.
Do I really need online therapy?
Therapy is a great support if you are facing a big life challenge. But it is also a worthwhile investment if you simply want to thrive more, to clarify who you are and what you want, or troubleshoot relationships or other areas of life that are lagging, such as your career.
Working with an online psychologist
The process is easy and confidential. You simply need an internet connection and some privacy. Log in at your designated time to an agreed on video conferencing platform like Skype or Zoom, and from there, it's exactly like an in-person session.
The benefits of online counselling
Online talking therapy is a safe and confidential space that means you can:
- make your sessions even if travelling or navigating a busy schedule
- access a top London therapist even if you don't live nearby
- speak to someone who understands your culture and language if you are living overseas
- relax in the comfort of your own home where you might feel safer
- save time and money on transport and child care
- avoid going out if anxiety, OCD, or illness makes it a challenge.
Why choose a Harley Therapy™ online therapist?
If for any reason it's not a perfect match, we offer a session with another therapist free of charge.
Note that some of our therapists can also provide 'blended therapy', a mix of in person and online sessions, if this is your preference.

Online therapy is an appointment with a therapist that’s held over a video call rather than in person. Having virtual therapy appointments can be more flexible for patient and therapist.
You can expect to pay around £180 per session for online therapy in London. As online therapy is just as effective as in-person, the rates are the same.
Online therapy is available on the NHS, but you may face a long waiting list and there may be a limit to the number of sessions you’re eligible for.
While Harley Therapy is based in London, it offers online therapy so it doesn’t matter where in the UK or in the world you are!
