How it works

We at Psyma have created a mobile app offering access to highly qualified doctorate level psychologists with substantial expertise in working with a range of mental health issues and in delivering evidence based therapies.  In doing so we aim to solve two of the biggest barriers to better mental health- access and quality of care.

What is therapy and how can it help

Sometimes life throws us a curveball and you face difficulties that you can’t manage on your own.  Talking is vital, but some people don’t have anyone they can confide in or don’t want to share their problems with people they know.  Some people therefore seek out professionals, such as psychologists, to help them manage.

Grounded in dialogue, therapy provides a safe and supportive environment that allows you to talk openly with someone who’s objective, neutral and non-judgmental. Therapy can help you uncover your own insight and understanding of your problem, providing you with the tools to help you resolve them and deal with whatever is holding you back in life.  The more armed you are with information about the underlying issues that cause the problems, the easier it becomes to manage them.  Therapy can be helpful for anyone who wants to explore the way they are thinking or feeling and for those who are experiencing a problem or issue they are keen to resolve.

Who you’ll work with

There are many mental health practitioners available and it can often be confusing trying to appreciate the differences and determine the right fit for you.  For that reason, we at Psyma have made this process simple by offering only doctorate level trained clinical or counselling psychologists, who have all had the most extensive, stringent and evidence based training within the NHS.

Clinical and counselling psychologists are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide array of conditions and have trained in a number of therapeutic approaches which allows them to tailor therapy to your specific needs. They have gained a degree in psychology in university and have continued into a doctorate course.   This has allowed them the additional perspective of understanding the scientific and medical viewpoint of certain mental health challenges.  They have all had substantial experience of working in a range of settings within the NHS and work with a wide range of problems and client groups – from eating disorders to schizophrenia and dementia.  You can read each psychologists biography, which outlines their specialism and experience, prior to booking an appointment.

Please note that clinical psychologists do not prescribe medication.  If you are seeking medication please approach your GP or a psychiatrist.

What therapies we offer

Our psychologists are all trained in using a number of therapies and tailoring therapy according to individual needs.  Details of therapies each psychologist is able to offer can be found in Psychologists biography’s, available on the mobile app.

Who can we help

Psyma aims to help adults with mental health difficulties, particularly those who find it difficult to attend face-to face sessions, need out-of-hours sessions or are unable to take time off from other commitments. The virtual nature of the app also allows easy access to those who live in isolated areas, cannot access transport or have mobility issues.
