Andrea Gavin
Welcome to my profile, I am passionate about ensuring therapy is accessible, flexible and tailored to each persons individual needs. I have a love of culture and languages having been raised cross culturally in England and Portugal and my interest in psychology started when I was a translator for Street Projects based in Brazil. I completed my professional training in Integrative Psychotherapy in 2008 and chose this form of therapy as it adopts the view that as human beings we are naturally geared towards self-regulation (balance/wholeness) when the right conditions are in place. I have predominately worked in the NHS, Well-being services and higher education supporting people who have experienced low mood, depression, worry, anxiety, panic as well as supporting people through relationship challenges such as domestic violence, affairs or divorce. Similarly, I work with grief , work related difficulties and other life transitions such as pregnancy, childbirth or other life changing events. Prior clients tell me I am compassionate, honest, culturally sensitive and down-to-earth in my approach. In addition, I have managed therapeutic teams and services supporting trainee counsellors and therapists working towards accreditation. I am currently completing my training in Counselling for Depression which is an innovative development in counselling and psychotherapy and focuses on emotional issues underlying depression as well as internal processes such as low self esteem. Areas I have experience and interest in are: - emotional and psychological well-being - personal development - sadness, sense of feeling stuck, lack of motivation and drive to include clinical depression - physical health, isolation and anxiety Do feel free to message me to explore availability as I have flexibility for daytime, evening and weekend sessions (UK timezone).

Guy Butterworth
I completed my diploma in 2009 and have been working independently in private practice for most of the time since. I enjoy being able to provide clients with the time and space that they need to explore difficult personal issues, remembering what it was like to be a client myself for 2 years. I trained according to the person-centred model of therapy and this informs my work to date, while I continue to learn about developments that are taking place in therapy and in scientific research in order to keep my skills and knowledge current. Please contact me so that we can work together to build a relationship that enables you to work on whatever brought you to think about therapy.

Ruth Leaney
I am a qualified psychodynamic psychotherapist (BACP registered) offering individual on line and telephone counselling to adults, the work can be short term or on-going. My way of working involves thinking about the link between past and present experiences, such as your relationships or how you respond to situations in your life.There could be patterns of behaviour that you have become stuck in and unaware of. There may be something specific that you are struggling with or a general feeling of unhappiness where feelings and thoughts are troubling you and have become overwhelming. I offer a non-judgemental space where we can explore whatever you bring together, at your own pace and in a way which feels safe. Having this space to recognise and make sense of your experiences can lead to positive change, more freedom and self awareness.

Lauren Stock
To put quite simply, I feel that all individuals experience different levels of adversity and emotional pain at various moments in life. The extent to which we cope with this depends on factors ranging from our early experiences of nurturing, family and friendship groups, financial and social deprivation to our daily acts of self care and our values. When we come up against problems such as crippling self doubt, self attacking thoughts, hopelessness, suicidal thoughts, panic and obsessional worrying, it is important that we should receive safe, effective and supportive help. I believe that offering people the opportunity to tell their story from wherever feels right, to understand their problems in detail and to decide the various directions to take is a form of self care. The majority of my professional experience has been withthe NHS as a psychologist working in the field of primary care mental health, hospital outpatients and Public Health for the last 10 years. This has involved developing and running self-management groups for managing common mental health difficulties and also helping GPs to identify early signs of depression in order to manage their symptoms sooner. My current role is within a Personality Disorders Team, working with young people aged 18-25. It involves working in a team with Psychiatrists, Social Workers, Nurses and other therapists to help with suicidal thoughts and urges as well as planning how treatment will look. I continue to work for the NHS in the main because I feel that this reflects the realities of life and the systems which continue to challenge us all.

I offer a counselling relationship within which you feel safe and can explore whatever is causing you distress. With warmth, empathy, humour and respect, I will help you to discover ways of living more resourcefully and authentically, and will try to understand you and your experiences without being in any way judgemental.

Each counselling session lasts 50 minutes; the number and frequency of sessions is entirely up to you.

Carolyn Moscrop
I am very lucky to have had the opportunity to use my counselling skills to support people in so many different ways. I have counselled at a GP surgery. I have worked with a local charity and a national bereavement charity. I have run anger management groups and also specialising in bereavement counselling. I now focus on my private practice in Hastings working with people online the phone and face to face. I also work with children and have done creative activities with people with dementia. Before I became a counsellor was a social worker in London supporting people with drug rehabilitation. Seeing how well some people managed to come off drugs with the support of one to one counselling made me want to become a counsellor to offer that kind of support. I also worked in a hospital on a mental health team and at the local social services in East Sussex.

Our online therapy philosophy


The goal of E-Therapy is to provide the best private online therapy in the UK, delivering emotional, psychological and behavioural therapies to improve the quality of life for those across the country and worldwide.

The problems we set out to solve


Owing to the complexity and difficulties of our everyday lives, there is a rising demand for these therapeutic services in order to help with our emotional, psychological and physical difficulties.

Sadly, stress, depression and anxiety are now common symptoms of our fast-paced modern times.

We also know that not everybody has the time or resources to find a suitable therapist, and attend face-to-face sessions. Additionally, the stigma of experiencing and dealing with emotional and other difficulties may also prevent those who would benefit from therapy or counselling from using the traditional approach.

We firmly believe that having access to therapy from the comfort of your own home, office, or wherever you choose can help with the problems outlined.

How we strive to help you


We are passionate about helping people live peaceful, joyful and harmonious lives. We also understand that this progress is constantly hindered by the complexities of daily living.

For therapists and counsellors, E-Therapy is a secure, confidential and effective platform through which they can deliver psychological and behavioural therapies. And because it is an online medium, our experienced therapists can reach out to a wider audience.

We strongly believe that with the appropriate guidance, a significant proportion of the population in the UK and across the world can be in a better position to deal with life’s complexities and not feel exhausted or overwhelmed in the process. We strive to improve the quality of life of our clients and assist them in achieving happiness, prosperity and fulfilment through the best online mental health services possible.


Our mission statement


Assisting mankind in the alleviation of psychological and emotional conflict, thereby enabling humanity to progress a step further in its quest for fulfilment, purpose and happiness, in essence creating a more sustainable and harmonious world.
