For those who struggle with having poor mental well-being, feeling overly anxious, or simply wanting to learn some techniques to boost emotional/mental well-being, there are now freely available a number of online therapies that you can access. These therapies are based on proven techniques that counsellors/psychologists use in their treatment, except that they are delivered online. There is a growing evidence-base to support the use of these online therapies.
