How Does It Work?
Supervised By Your Clinician
Developed by world-leading experts, our courses are evidence-based and designed to help you gain the knowledge and skills to overcome your difficulties.
On average across our courses, most people benefit from each lesson they complete, with 80% of people who complete all lessons benefiting substantially and 50% to the point of no longer being troubled by anxiety or depression related illness. However, 20% do not benefit and will need to seek further assistance.

Our full-length, disorder-specific courses are rigorously tested in our research unit, Virtual Clinic, before they are released. We have treated over 2,000 patients in Virtual Clinic, using versions of the depression, panic, social phobia, GAD, OCD, and transdiagnostic courses, and have found that the courses significantly reduce anxiety and depression. Virtual Clinic is also continually involved in a range of research projects investigating the nature, causes and treatment of anxiety disorders.
- Benefit substantially 80%
