Our digital partners

At Wandsworth Talking Therapies, we are pleased to work with several digital partners to support us in providing you with a choice about the way in which you have your therapy.

ieso Digital Health, SilverCloud and Xyla Digital Health all provide evidence based treatments (to find out what we mean by evidence based treatments please click here) to support you with your difficulties. You can find out more about our digital partners by reading below.

ieso Digital Health

ieso Digital Health provides free, one-to-one therapy on behalf of the NHS for people with common mental health problems such as depression and anxiety. Qualified therapists deliver live cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) online through typed conversation in a secure virtual therapy room. To find out more about CBT, please click here.

Online CBT follows the same format as traditional face-to-face therapy and is proven to be just as effective. You can access the sessions from anywhere you feel most comfortable and at a time to fit around your schedule, including evenings and weekends.

Access to the service is very quick; you can typically have your first appointment within two weeks of being referred. Online CBT is the same as face-to-face CBT, other than that the conversation is typed. Appointments are 45 or 60 minutes long and can be attended from anywhere you can connect to the internet, including from the comfort of your own home.

Your therapist will work closely with you to help you understand how your thoughts and beliefs affect your feelings and behaviours and teach you coping skills to handle different problems or situations.

SilverCloud

SilverCloud is a form of computerised Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (cCBT) designed to help manage and improve the symptoms of common mental health difficulties, such as depression and anxiety. This therapy option can be accessed through your smartphone, tablet, or computer, and provides a user-friendly and self-directed experience of CBT. To find out more about CBT, please click here.

While accessing this treatment, you will be assigned to and supported by one of our Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners who will set you up on a treatment programme tailored to your needs. The clinician will provide brief weekly online reviews of your progress over a course of six weeks, with the first and last consultation over the telephone. They will be able to view your entries on the programme and will be able to guide you with helpful recommendations along the way.

The therapy programmes available offer a range of informative and interactive ‘space from’ modules comprised of many therapy tools to help you on your journey towards recovery. These include; journalling methods, mood diaries, thought and activity diaries, relapse prevention toolkits, plus a range of evidence-based CBT specific techniques. Each programme includes a useful ‘Welcome to SilverCloud’ module to help you make the most of digital therapy.

The supported treatment will last for six weeks, however access to SilverCloud will remain for up to a year afterwards. This allows people to continue working on building and maintaining the CBT skills they have acquired and continue to gain ‘space from’ the symptoms of common mental health difficulties.

SilverCloud allows for a flexible and personalised experience of self-help therapy. It not only provides a platform to help make sense of what influences mental health, but also gives you the power to choose when and where you access strategies that will move you towards healthy mental wellbeing. This approach fits in well with people who have busy lives or who find it difficult to attend regular face-to-face or telephone therapy sessions. It means that you can work on your difficulties in your own time and at your own pace.

Following your initial assessment with Wandsworth Talking Therapies, you may be recommended a course of sessions with SilverCloud or you may wish to make use of SilverCloud to support you whilst you are waiting to start a different type of therapy. You can find out more about accessing SilverCloud whilst on a waiting list by clicking here.
