How does it work?
Our whole operation is based on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which is one of the most commonly used psychotherapeutic approaches for treating mental health problems. CBT helps you to identify, challenge and overcome your dysfunctional thoughts, behaviors and emotions.
We have created the most complete online therapy toolbox there is. By signing up for our services you will have full access to:
Your personal therapist will be by your side - from start to finish. Guiding you to a happier you through live chat, messages, email and the worksheets in each section, where your therapist will give daily feedback on your responses.
You decide how frequently you want to work with the program. However, your therapist is available for daily support Monday-Friday, if you need it.
This is where you start. Your online therapy program consists of eight sections, which include all of the information you need to identify, challenge and overcome your problems.
Each section is like a chapter in an interactive, online book. It is comprised of both reading material and practical hands-on tools like the worksheets.
Your job is to read each section and to complete the worksheets that accompany each section. Take as much time as you need. You can always go back to a previous section, if you need to.
In each section, there are several worksheets. These are very important parts of improving your well-being and will give you and your therapist the individual foundation to work from in overcoming your problems.
You will frequently be asked to write down your thoughts, feelings and behaviors in the worksheets. Within 24 hours (often much sooner), you will receive valuable hands-on feedback on your writings from your therapist.
Your therapist is available for daily support Monday-Friday. Make sure that you use this opportunity to get the results you deserve.
Live chat with your therapist is a perfect opportunity to get instant guidance and support, so make sure you book an appointment each week.
If you have a standard subscription, your membership includes one 30-minute chat session per week and two chats per week if you have the premium subscription.
In addition to communicating with your therapist through the worksheets and the live chat, you can always send a message to your therapist with any questions or thoughts.
Your therapist will reply within 24 hours, Monday - Friday.
By starting the day on the right note, it’s more likely that you will continue your day with a more positive attitude. That’s why we have created an easy-to-use journal for you!
This is where you add and schedule the things that will add extra light into your life! The activity plan also serves as a written agreement with yourself and greatly increases the chances of you carrying out your plans!
YOGA - NEW FEATURE!
We are very happy to present you with this new feature - yoga and meditation videos! It is the latest addition to our ”happiness-toolbox”. Our in-house yoga teacher Petra has created a simple yoga tutorial and slow flow videos for beginners.
These videos are perfect for when you need help to cope with your depression, anxiety or stress or when you’re feeling low and need an instant boost of gratitude and happiness.
Watch the introduction video and then start exploring the videos. You can watch the ones that meet your specific need.
At the beginning of your online therapy program, you will complete a simple test with questions that will allow you to address and evaluate your problems, possibly for the first time.
Later in the program, you will use this test as a reference point so that you can actually see the progress you have made.
Your subscription gives you access to our forum, where you can meet others who might be in a similar situation to yours.
Our forum is a sanctuary where you can feel safe to chat anonymously, not just with other people going through the same issues as you, but also with our therapists whose primary motivation is to help you get better.

Frequently Asked Questions:
How does it work?
Our whole operation is based on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which is one of the most commonly used psychotherapeutic approaches for treating mental health problems. CBT helps you to identify, challenge and overcome your dysfunctional thoughts, behavior and emotions.
By signing up for our services, you will have full access to our online therapy program. It is tailored to your specific needs with easy-to-follow information and hands-on tools, your daily journal and activity plan, including daily contact with your therapist (Monday-Friday), tests to see your progress, yoga & meditation videos and access to the forum. You will have unlimited communication with your therapist through worksheets in each section. If you have a standard or premium subscription, your membership also includes one 30-minute chat session per week (two chats per week if you have the premium subscription) and the unlimited use of messages.
How much time do I need to spend on the program?
This is a very individual choice that depends on your needs and preferences. Some clients spend several hours per day on their program, while others feel that a few hours per week is sufficient. It is important to remember that you have had your whole life to learn and unconsciously process negative behavior. It will take time and considerable practice to reprogram your frame of mind.
For how long should I use your services?
It really depends on your situation. However, we recommend that you use our services for at least one month in order to have time to process everything. Some clients just need guidance from the program and therapist for a few weeks to get back on the right track. However, others need more ongoing help and stay with us for about a year.
I am not able to complete the program right now - can I put my subscription on hold?
Whatever the reason, you may put your subscription on hold for as long as needed. Simply contact us by email or chat »
What are the online hours for my therapist?
Your therapist is normally online eight hours per day (Monday-Friday). We always try to match you with a therapist with working hours that fit your time zone.
The staff, including customer service, is online and ready to assist you virtually 24 hours per day (Monday-Friday).
How do I cancel my subscription?
There’s no hassle and no questions asked. You can view the details of your subscription and cancel with a simple click of a button from here »
How many sessions are included?
Our services do not offer the same kind of "sessions" (appointments) that you would have with a face-to-face therapist. For many people, what we offer is more suitable and more on their terms. Our online therapy program consists of eight "sections". Each section is like a chapter in a book. It contains all of the information that you need to challenge your negative thinking patterns and replace them with new, better ways of thinking. Within each section, there are several "worksheets" where you will be asked to address specific questions. Your therapist will give you feedback on a daily basis (Monday-Friday). If you have a standard or premium subscription, your membership includes one 30-minute chat session per week (two chats per week if you have the premium subscription) and the unlimited use of messages.
How long will it take for my therapist to respond to the worksheets?
You will get feedback from your therapist within a maximum of 24 hours, Monday-Friday. However, your therapist will usually reply to you within a few hours (or even minutes). Since the communication through the worksheets is not in real-time, you do not have to schedule a session with your therapist. You only write down and read the comments, when it is convenient for you. You can schedule one real-time chat session per week with your therapist, if you have a standard subscription and two per week if you have a premium subscription. If you need more chat sessions, it can be arranged for a minor fee.
Can I read the previous comments made by my therapist in the worksheets?
You most certainly can. This is also one of the advantages with online therapy, compared to traditional face-to-face therapy. At a physical appointment, it might be difficult to take in and remember all of the advice and feedback that the therapist gave you. With our services, you can easily read and process any previous feedback from your therapist as well as your comments. This is also a great way for you to observe the improvements that you are making during the therapy process.
