About
TYHO Therapists

How are TYHO Therapists selected?

On TYHO, we use the term ‘Therapists’ to collectively refer to all mental health professionals, including psychotherapists, psychologists, and counsellors.  

We select our Therapists through a strict screening and selection process. Our requirements include having a minimum master’s degree in counselling or psychology and the required training in therapeutic approaches and specialisations. 

Moreover, we ensure that whoever we select is also aligned with our core values, which include being empathetic, non-judgmental, and inclusive of diverse cultures, backgrounds, and viewpoints. 

Therapists at TYHO are deeply committed to providing you with high-quality services. Having lived and worked in different countries and organisations, your Therapist may also use their life experiences to interact with you. 

Our team of Therapists with diverse backgrounds and skills will make sure that you can find someone who best matches your needs.

At TYHO, we provide online therapy in London, Manchester, and Birmingham.

What is the difference between Care and Empathy Therapists?

We currently have two types of TYHO Therapists – Care and Empathy – who charge a slightly different price. The categorisation considers various factors, including:

  • Therapists’ specialisations (ie whether they continue working towards specialist certifications such as the Gottman approach – which requires additional costs and management)
  • Demographics of the Therapist’s clientele (ie costs depend on who they work with, such as employees, full-time caregivers or adolescents and teenagers – the latter requiring more affordable therapy services)
  • Therapist’s availability (ie how many slots they have available and the number of slots already booked)

Regardless of category, all TYHO Therapists were selected via the same stringent process and can recognise and help with mental health issues listed on their profiles, including mild to moderate depression, mood swings, relationship problems, chronic anxiety and panic, or work-related stress. 

Ultimately, the fit between you and your Therapist is most important for effective therapeutic outcomes, and selecting the right Therapist is key (regardless of their Therapist category).

How Can Therapy Help?

What is therapy?

Therapy in the UK (also known as psychotherapy or talk therapy) is a form of treatment or management plan which involves talking to a trained mental health professional about emotions or actions that cause distress in your life. 

For example, emotional distress could include having low self-esteem, being depressed, having problems in your relationships, lack of communication and symptoms of depression or mood swings. 

All types of talk therapies aim to help you:

  • Share your feelings in a non-judgmental and professional space
  • Understand yourself and your problems better
  • Solve and overcome complicated emotions 
  • Identify unhelpful patterns in how you think or feel 
  • Provide therapeutic tools to overcome or change them

On the one hand, TYHO Therapists in Birmingham draw from several modalities like cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and person-centred therapy to provide holistic support for problems such as uncontrollable anger, stress, phobias, anxiety, or depression. 

On the other hand, Therapists use evidence-based tools from specific types of therapy, like dialectic behaviour therapy (DBT), to help you manage and cope with distressing emotions and situations faced in conditions such as borderline personality disorder. 

In fact, research shows that DBT helps with specific borderline symptoms and the approach is also recommended by the NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence). 

However, it is difficult to say if a particular therapy will work well for you or not because it depends on factors such as what kind of help you want, your need for therapy, and your relationship with your Therapist. 

Several ongoing studies have shown that building a positive therapeutic alliance (ie rapport with your Therapist) directly results in successful therapy outcomes. 

Hence, regardless of the specialisations, try to find a TYHO Therapist in London with whom you can truly connect! 

What issues can therapy help with?

If you suspect that you might be struggling with a mental health disorder or if you already have a diagnosis and would like help in managing your issues – therapy can help you. 

TYHO Therapists in London can help you with:

Please note that the above list is only some of the problems presented. Therapists on our platform can help with several other problems that might manifest in different areas of life, such as family, marriage, workplace, childhood, and more.

Visit a Therapist’s full profile and see the ‘What Therapist Can Help With’ section for their specialisations and list of all the issues they can help you with.

People often think that therapy is an extreme option and that unless their emotions or situations get severe, they should try to manage the problem on their own. 

However, the truth is that it is okay to seek therapy at any point in your life and for any reason. In fact, getting help before things get worse can help you understand the problem and solve it during the early stages. 

Similarly, therapy can also help you identify and label emotions that you may not be aware of. 

Below is an anonymous review by one of our clients after they attended therapy!

“My Therapist has excellent communication, analytical and people skills as she is always able to comprehend my situations/incommunicable feelings & thoughts and draw a few conclusions for me to decide on my own. She also explained and taught me useful techniques in a creative way for me to remember easily.”

What questions to ask your Therapist in the UK?

TYHO Therapists in Manchester are understanding and supportive of individual needs. This means you can talk to your Therapist openly about anything bothering you or if you need clarification regarding your management plan or issues. 

If you have any specific requirements, please feel free to use our filter to look for someone who fits your needs. 

For example, on TYHO, you can look for a professional based on gender, issues they can help with, types of services they offer (ie individual or couples therapy) and based on who speaks your first language. 

During therapy, you may have several questions. Some of the topics you can ask your Therapist in London includes:

  • Qualifications and expertise
  • Therapeutic approaches they use in their practice
  • Therapist’s specialism (eg whether they have experience working with younger people or survivors of abuse)
  • Experience with the specific issue you are facing
  • What therapy will be like with them
  • Benefits and risks of therapy
  • Confidentiality

Please note that there are no right or wrong topics to discuss with your Therapist. No matter what doubts you have, you can have them clarified during therapy. 

In fact, asking questions will help create a good rapport and improve the therapeutic relationship you have with your Therapist. 

Be assured that all Therapists at TYHO maintain strict confidentiality. Whatever you share during therapy will remain between you and your Therapist. 

However, if your Therapist identifies that you may be at risk of harming yourself or someone else, they have a legal and ethical obligation to inform your emergency contact person.

Online Therapy in London: TYHO Services

All types of therapy sessions are structured and can vary based on what sort of problem you need help with.

At TYHO, therapy in the UK can be time-limited and open-ended. In other words, all therapy sessions last 1 hour and can be both short-term and long-term. Open-ended means that you can continue therapy for as long as you need. 

We also have Therapists in Birmingham who provide both online video and audio sessions. 

In this section, you will find information about TYHO’s therapy services, which include:

  • Individual therapy
  • Couples therapy
  • Family therapy

Individual online therapy in London is a type of therapy where you will work with your mental health Therapist in a safe and confidential environment. 

During online therapy, you will explore your feelings, thoughts, and beliefs, learn how to identify aspects of your life and personality that you would like to change, and better understand your personal goals, career goals, and relationships. 

Only you will be attending the therapy sessions, and your Therapist will work with you to make you feel comfortable and familiar with the process of therapy. 

Initially, your Therapist may ask you questions about your:

  • Childhood and past experiences
  • Situations or emotions you find difficult to handle
  • Current or past romantic and platonic relationships
  • Perspective of yourself and the world

Remember that you do not have to talk about anything you are uncomfortable with. You can take as long as you need to open up with your Therapist.

Through individual counselling in London and with the help of TYHO Therapists, you can expect to solve your problems, manage your emotions, learn about your strengths and weaknesses, and healthily express your thoughts and feelings. 

You can seek individual therapy for several issues, including:

  • Grief
  • Lack of communication 
  • Low confidence
  • Anxiety and mood swings
  • Problems at work
  • Recent trauma, such as divorce or emotional abuse
  • Stress
  • Being unable to make or maintain friendships and relationships

During couples counselling in the UK, you will work with a couples therapist along with your partner. 

At TYHO, our Therapists are trained in approaches such as the Gottman Method and can help you and your partner improve your relationship. 

Some of the ways you can benefit from couples therapy include the following below:

  • Through evidence-based tools such as love maps and structured conversations, your Therapist will help both partners see the relationship from a new perspective. The approach includes learning to stop blaming each other for problems and working together to solve them.
  • Your couples Therapist will help you interact with each other and express your emotions in a healthy way. 
  • If you avoid or find it hard to share your thoughts openly, you may grow apart from your partner. Hence, through approaches like reflective listening, your Therapist will help you understand each other’s attachment styles and teach you ways to satisfy each other’s needs in the relationship.

Family counselling is a service where you will attend therapy with all or some of your family members. 

During therapy, you can work with different family members, such as parents/guardians, siblings, grandparents, friends, caregivers, or relatives. 

TYHO online Therapists in Birmingham can help you and your family:

  • Adjust to a new life change (eg graduation, moving homes)
  • Cope with changes that come with ageing
  • Navigate death and grief
  • Handle parent-child or sibling conflicts
  • Communicate openly and honestly

Our mental health professionals in London also help with certain disorders or conditions that one or more people may be struggling with in the family. 

For example, using family therapy, Therapists can provide help for one person with an eating disorder whilst also supporting other members of the family in coping with the caregiver stress.

Is therapy free in London?

If your organisation does not provide EAP services, feel free to share the below information and link with them.

Is online therapy in London a good option?

Online therapy in London is just as effective as in-person sessions. Research constantly shows that online therapy can help with psychological and emotional distress, such as anxiety and depression.

The key is to create a strong therapeutic bond with your Therapist. To do so, try to ask them as many questions as possible about therapy and what you can expect during sessions. 

Similarly, answer and engage in an honest and open dialogue with your Therapist. The more information you share about yourself, the better your Therapist can help you. 

Will everything I tell my Therapist be confidential?

Yes, everything you tell your Therapist will be confidential. 

However, during crises (ie when you’re at risk of harming yourself or another person), your Therapist may have a legal or ethical duty to inform your emergency contact person. 

How will I feel after a therapy session?

You may feel a range of emotions after your therapy sessions. For example, you may feel:

  • Relieved if you have shared something you haven’t been able to talk about with anyone else and you felt heard and seen.
  • Emotionally exhausted if you had to work on some of your complicated emotions for the first time during therapy. 
  • Energised if you are starting to understand yourself better and learning new things about your life and your personality. 
  • Frustrated if you could not talk or share more feelings that may have been bugging you. 
  • Overwhelmed if you had to deal with some painful and traumatic memories or recall complicated dynamics with some of your loved ones. 

If you feel any of the above, know that these feelings are completely common and normal. Therapy is a process where you are constantly showing up for yourself and working on improving yourself – hence, it may consume a lot of your emotional energy. 

As you attend more sessions and familiarise yourself with your Therapist, you will eventually begin to relax, heal from your issues, and look forward to learning more and more about yourself. 

However, if you feel nervous going back to therapy after your first sessions, you can try to share what you are feeling with your Therapist. 

Talking about any issues you are facing, what works and what doesn’t, may give your Therapist a complete picture of you and your life experiences – which will, in turn, help them to tailor their management plan for you.
