Emma West
Hi my name is Emma and I have been working solely as an online therapist since 2017. So if you are looking for an experienced therapist with specialist online training please get in touch. My background of working at the BBC and being a writer means I have a lot of experience of putting people at ease and developing a good rapport. I aim to offer a warm, friendly approach to counselling, which most importantly includes listening without judging. So whatever you are struggling with - stress, low mood, anxiety, low self esteem, relationship issues, loss, anger, trauma - I will support you in exploring what is going on, help you work out what you would like to change, and work with you to find ways to make those changes. I also have specialist experience and knowledge of disability, health, carer, student and gender dysphoria issues. I have plenty of experience of doing long and short term work - even one off sessions - via a variety of different services: a low cost counselling service, in the NHS taking referrals from the local Depression and Anxiety service, for an NHS Specialist Gender Identity Clinic [for people transitioning], and at the University of Exeter, as well as privately online. As well as doing a lot of listening I use a variety of approaches/techniques in sessions to help you make the changes you want to make, for example: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy [which is about recognising and challenging unhelpful thinking], mindfulness [which is about being in the here and now / relaxation], breathing techniques, and writing exercises - these are just some examples - really it's just a question of finding what works for you. I also use 'psycho-education' which can help you to understand the natural responses we have when life has been or is difficult. To this end I've developed a series of mind maps to help explain common issues eg anxiety, depression and low self esteem, common problems eg sleep issues, and which also identifies potentially useful solutions for you to try out. Please message me if you'd like a session on a day/time that doesn't look available on my calendar because I could have availability on other days/times.

Ellie Mackay
Hi I am Ellie and I am a highly experienced and qualified psychotherapist who is based in Hull, East Yorkshire and over the years I have helped a wide range of clients who have experienced different issues. I am a facilitator of change, and just like scaffolding, I support my client while the delicate restorative work is ongoing. The aim of this process is to help you explore the cause of the issues, support you while you make the necessary adjustments, and then arm you with your own inner resources to continue your recovery journey. I use the key techniques of Gestalt psychotherapy: symbolic work, two chair work and dream work in a deeply empathetic way. This is not an exhaustive list, but here are a few of the symptoms that I have helped people with over the years. • Struggling to carry out day to day activities • Finding it hard to cope • Lack of confidence • Relationship issues • Struggling to getting up in the morning • Worrying thoughts & feelings • Overthinking • Catastrophizing (Expect the worst will happen) • Confidence & relationship issues. • Dealing with a very severe critic • Low self esteem • Childhood trauma • Difficult relationships • Addictions • Depression • Anxiety • Panic • Grief • Trauma surrounding childbirth, miscarriage & post-natal depression My practice embraces diversity in all its forms and I work keenly with people of all gender identities, sexualities, abilities, ethnic backgrounds, age groups, etc. My choice of profession has been born out of a fundamental desire to help heal people. My mission is to turn my passion for change into supporting my community and a world that I want my own family to grow up in. The work I do is more than just a job to me. It draws upon my natural strengths and has been finely tuned over many years of theoretical and practical experience. My work is also underpinned by my own programme of self-care and continued personal and professional development, to make sure you receive the most dedicated support possible. I really would love to help you and I provide a nourishing safe and non-judgemental holding space, so you have nothing to worry about. If you would like to book an initial free phone consultation to see if I can help you, please do reach out to me.

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.

Steve Manning
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. I have over eighteen years’ experience as a counsellor, including working in private practice, as a staff counsellor with the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister and other Government departments, with several UK Employee Assistance Providers, in a GP surgery, with the Young Person’s Advisory Service (YPAS) in Liverpool and as an online counsellor. I also work as a counselling supervisor, and have designed and run several therapy-related workshops. Each counselling session lasts 50 minutes; the number and frequency of sessions is entirely up to you.

Ashley Horsley
I have worked in the field of mental health for over twenty years and I do this work from a place of love, passion and vocation. As well as a thorough and in-depth professional training I also bring the important often difficult learnings from life, relationships, parenting, loss, ageing: any such central components of being alive. My central thrust is towards connection, authenticity and trust: to offer this and thus encourage the same from you. I create a safe space in which you can feel ready to unburden yourself from the weight of whatever you are carrying alone. Whether it is your anxieties and fears or your anger and dissatisfaction; whether it is haunting trauma or crippling self-doubt: whatever it is I am there to accompany you on the journey to the bottom of it. The work is all about communication and expression, through listening to your story and through working with your body where so often tension is trapped and tormenting. The timing of your arrival in therapy is always the right timing: when your need wells right up to the surface and sends you to me I am here. It is vitally important that we do not feel locked away in solitary confinement; that hope, trust and safety are accessible human resources found in contact with others. As your therapist I will work hard to sustain or recover these for you. The Corona Crisis: our New Reality We have been fighting to survive not only a pandemic but the self-isolation and social distance we need to bear for the duration. If you are somebody who needs help navigating these changes, I will offer a port in the storm for you where you can have the contact, conversation, support and connection that you need.

Aryeh Sampson
I specialise in helping couples and individuals improve their relationships and overcome anxiety, anger and depression .I also work with a wide range of other issues.. i am presently during Covid -19 working online , whats app & phone. I am an experienced BACP accredited psychotherapist and certified Imago relationship therapist with training in CBT. I have a Masters in Counselling and Psychotherapy from Regents College and have been in private practice since 2009. My approach is integrative, and I am a recognized provider for WPA, AXA and BUPA. How can I help? 1) Marital and Relationship Issues As a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist I work with individuals and couples to understand the causes of their difficulties and rebuild love and connection in their relationships. Couples often experience a breakdown of communication, that causes a fight and flight reaction. These may become repetitive cycle of self destructive behaviour were anger expressed spins out of control .A reduction of emotional closeness, trust and physical intimacy follows which can lead to crises in the relationship, affairs and even the threat of divorce. Together we explore what you need, why there is disconnection and how you can get the relationship you want. A key to this is building open and calm communication in order to understand each other, resolve conflict and meet each others needs . We also focus on building greater appreciation, care and fun to reignite love and connection in the relationship. 2) Overcoming Anxiety ( Generalised Anxiety Disorder & Panic attacks) Anxiety comes from underlying fear. To overcome it, we need to understand what the fear is and what is causing it. Sometimes it can be based on illusory thinking, where a person focuses on the worst case scenario coming true. These thoughts need to be challenged so we can eliminate them. . When the fear is a real one, it needs to be confronted by taking appropriate action. There are times when anxiety is based on the influences from past experiences, which need to be addressed to resolve them. 3) Anger Management Anger can wreak havoc in a person’s life. With anger management a person gains understanding into what’s triggering the anger and how to change the way you respond. This can be by expressing feelings in a healthy way, and taking appropriate steps to solve the underlying cause of the anger. In each case anger management is tailored to the needs of the clients. Testimonials from previous clients "You have helped us enormously to move past our problems and find a better way to communicate. We are both very grateful for all your help." "I went to see Aryeh during a time in my life where I was beginning to feel depressed and it was affecting nearly all aspects of my life. Aryeh is an amazing listener and his in-depth analysis of things I never would have thought of helped me resolve some huge holes in my life." "Aryeh is calm, down to earth and easy to approach, which is exactly what you need when you're feeling vulnerable talking about yourself and your issues." "I feel the immense benefit to my life coming to you has given me."

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.
