Online Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

SilverCloud is an informative online therapy programme, proven to support wellbeing and help you learn ways to manage low mood and anxiety, improve your sleep and build resilience.

 If you prefer to get support from your practitioner online, without setting appointments or having to talk directly to someone, SilverCloud could be for you.

It can also be a great place to start to help understand your symptoms and what support can be offered before delving into a specific technique 1-2-1 with a practitioner, and this might be why it is offered as a first step following your assessment.

You can work through the programme independently and at your own pace, while a practitioner will follow your progress and offer tips and advice.

How does it work?


You’ll receive up to six online progress reviews from your supporter, usually every two weeks, where they will monitor your progress on the programme.

They will leave comments and suggestions of what might be helpful for you to work on, and you can also leave comments and ask questions which will be answered during your review. You don’t need to be online for each review; it’ll be available to you the next time you log on.

For each review, you’ll be asked to complete the questionnaires that will help your supporter assess your current mood and tailor the support you are given.

Once you have finished your reviews with your supporter, you’ll continue to have access to SilverCloud for up to a year, should you need a recap on the tools and techniques you have learnt.
