And drawing back from my own (fairly subtle) issues for a moment. Betterhelp Forbes…could e-counselling be the answer to the mental health problems escalating amongst under-30s? With cuts to mental health services truly starting to bite, digitised treatment could be just the ticket for young adults who currently filter almost every aspect of their lives– friends, work, sex, entertainment– through a screen.

Not everyone is entirely persuaded that moving mental health care online is the way forward. “You get to know not just what it’s like to talk to the individual, but how it feels to be in a space with them.

” I’ve performed some research into Skype counselling,” states London-based psychotherapist Dr Aaron Balick, “and it’s not the ‘practical equivalent’ of conventional counselling; it’s simply not quite the exact same thing. It’s truly important that people who engage in it are aware that it’s a various experience from being in the room with somebody, speaking face-to-face.”

” In terms of availability, it’s a great start and absolutely better than nothing. It’ll ideally lead them to ultimately showing up in the space. If you’re having a hard time with relationship problems, attachment concerns, or much deeper issues, it’s better to be in the space with somebody. Skype and the internet offers a distance from your counsellor that may not be valuable.”

In cases of mild depression, the NHS is now directing some clients towards online programmes rather than in person counselling, a phenomenon that worries Dr Balick.
