What is Internet based CBT?

Internet based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is in many ways similar to visiting a psychologist, but with some important differences. In Internet Treatment your contact with your psychologist is done over the Internet, instead of in the room.

Using Internet-based CBT, you will learn the reasons why you feel a certain way and together we will find solutions to your problems.

The difference to "normal" treatment is that you gain support through your phone, tablet and computer but not from any specific location. Instead, we are available wherever you are!

Take the first step

We know it is not always so easy to get started. We want so badly to change us but it is something that resists and gets us to stay there and not make any change.

To start working on something you have been struggling with all your life can be very challenging.

We understand that it can be difficult to work with these things and we really want to help you.

New technology, in the form of smartphones, SMS-reminders, applications and other things are not things we have in our program because we think they are exciting. We use these toools since they been shown to make it easier to take the first step towards recovery.

Small steps that will improve your life

Treatment with Cognitive Behavioural therapy is done in co-operation between the therapist and patient, and that is of course also the case for our online treatments.

CBT is like wanderin upp a staircase, where we together decide how big steps you feel like taking. It may take its time but together we will reach the top. Irregardless if we are talking about getting out of a period of depression or overcoming a strong fear.

We believe that choice is an important part of treatment. We will never force you to do an exercise that you are not comfortable with and you will always decide in what pace you want to work.

During the program you will find that you can achieve your goals and make it to the top, something that might have felt was impossible in the beginning of the program
