Smarter therapy at your fingertips

Who are HelloSelf?

HelloSelf is an online video therapy platform, allowing you to speak to the UK’s best Clinical Psychologists at a time and place that suits you.

We believe therapy is most effective when a person’s needs and a therapist’s specialisms align, which is why we match members to a psychologist suited to them, not simply a professional who lives nearby. This comprehensive yet tailored approach results in members receiving more effective therapy on their own schedule at a more affordable price. All therapists are HCPC or BABCP registered.

Stress

Stress is usually felt when these demands outweigh the resources we have to cope with such demands, creating an imbalance. Stress can have an effect on how we think, feel and act.

Anxiety

Anxiety is a normal emotion which we all experience at times, to a lesser or larger degree. Anxiety is a general term for a set of symptoms, physical and psychological, which often is a natural way for our body to respond to threat - real or imagined.

OCD

OCD

Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is characterised by the frequent presence of intrusive thoughts (obsessions) and compulsive behaviours or acts (compulsions). It can be misunderstood and related back to the idea of a person who likes to have things organised.

Depression

Depression (sometimes referred to as clinical depression, major depressive disorder, or dysthmia) is a mood disorder characterised by persistent sadness which lasts for a few weeks or months.

Self-Esteem

Self-esteem concerns the beliefs and opinions we hold about ourselves. It relates to the value and worth with place on ourselves, sometimes in comparison to others. Those with higher self-esteem are likely to feel more self-assured and worry less about any negative judgement from others.

Life Changes

A life change or event is considered to be an occurrence that is likely to bring about temporary or permanent readjustment and would require a change in usual activities or routine. At some point in life we all experience changes which can be difficult or stressful to cope with.

Insomnia

Insomnia is an umbrella term that describes prolonged difficulties in falling asleep (initial insomnia), staying asleep, or frequent waking throughout the night.

Confidence

Living with low self-esteem can harm your mental health and lead to problems such as depression and anxiety. You may also develop unhelpful habits, such as smoking and drinking too much, as a way of coping.

Social Anxiety

Social anxiety is a fear of social situations that can be long-lasting. The anxiety experienced is usually distressing and have an impact on general wellbeing. Social anxiety can affect everyday activities, confidence, relationships, self-esteem and work.

Specific Phobia

A specific phobia is an overwhelming and debilitating fear of an object, place, situation, feeling, or animal. A phobia is not necessarily just something you are afraid of - the response tends to be more pronounced and can have an effect on how you live your daily life.

Bereavement

Grief is a common emotional response to loss, which often occurs following the death of a loved one, family member or friend.

Chronic Pain

Chronic or persistent pain can persist for over 12 weeks, despite medical treatment or intervention. It can affect people of all ages and all parts of the body. The pain can often remain even after routine tests come back clear.

Post Natal

Postnatal depression is a type of depression that many parents experience after having a baby. It's a common problem, affecting more than 1 in every 10 women within a year of giving birth. It can also affect fathers and partners.

Relationships

Relationships come in many shapes and forms. Often when we hear the term ‘relationship’ we think about the romantic kind. For sure, most people tend to place importance on finding a partner (or multiple) in their lifetime with whom they can share life’s ups-and-downs.

PTSD

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder caused by a single or multiple distressing and/or frightening events. It can develop immediately after experiencing the event, or even months or years later in some cases of complex PTSD.

Panic Attacks

Panic attacks are a fear response and experienced when there is a sudden and rapid increase in anxiety. They are often unpleasant for the sufferer but are not life-threatening.

Body Dysmorphic Disorder

Body Dysmorphic disorder (BDD) is a mental health condition where an individual spends a large amount of time worrying about a perceived flaw in their appearance which is often unnoticeable or seen as minor by others.

Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder is a condition predominantly affecting mood. People with bipolar disorder tend to experience periods of low mood (also known as depression) and periods of elevated/high mood (also known as mania).
