And pulling back from my own (fairly low-key) issues for a moment. Betterhelp.Co.Uk…could e-counselling be the answer to the mental health problems escalating among under-30s? With cuts to psychological health services truly starting to bite, digitised treatment could be just the ticket for young adults who already filter almost every aspect of their lives– pals, work, sex, entertainment– through a screen.

Not everyone is totally persuaded that shifting psychological healthcare online is the method forward. “For me, what works in therapy is when you fulfill someone face-to-face, in the same space,” states London-based psychotherapist Sandra Tapie. “You get to know not only what it resembles to speak with the individual, however how it feels to be in a room with them. Utilizing Skype is the next best thing: it’s ‘good enough’, however it does not create the nearness, the intimacy, that actually gets people to open up and check out things.”

” I’ve carried out some research into Skype counselling,” says London-based psychotherapist Dr Aaron Balick, “and it’s not the ‘functional equivalent’ of conventional counselling; it’s simply not quite the same thing. It’s truly essential that individuals who engage in it know that it’s a various experience from remaining in the space with someone, speaking in person.”

” In regards to ease of access, it’s a good start and absolutely better than nothing. It’ll ideally lead them to ultimately appearing in the space. However, if you’re struggling with relationship concerns, attachment problems, or deeper issues, it’s much better to be in the space with somebody. Skype and the internet provides a distance from your counsellor that may not be useful.”

In cases of mild depression, the NHS is now directing some clients towards online programs instead of face-to-face counselling, a phenomenon that worries Dr Balick.
