Years of study prove the effectiveness of online self-therapy.

Scientific evidence shows online self-therapy, guided by a psychologist, can be just as effective as attending therapy sessions. Studies also prove the benefits of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), mindfulness, and more — approaches that form the backbone of our programs for stress, anxiety, and depression.
