Remote Therapy

Curian, via our accredited CBT and Integrative Psychotherapist and where required our extended network, offers remote therapy and remote CBT to all customers at a reduced fixed cost.  Approximately a 24% reduction on standard face to face CBT fees.

Therapy can be offered to anyone nationwide and will be provided via telephone or interactive video calling. Remote therapy is an effective tool to deliver Talking Therapies and is successfully utilised within the NHS, predominantly as part of their IAPT Services. It is particularly useful for those clients who may live in remote locations or for those unable to travel. Face to face therapy will still be available locally to your client, if preferred. 

Advantages of Remote Therapy

  • Flexible in that patients can receive telephone or video calling at times which suit them
  • Save patients time and money – no travelling to appointments
  • Remote therapy is not dependent on location and patients can be telephoned or video called at home or elsewhere (at work for example in a lunch break) as most people now have mobile phones
  • Some patients, particularly those with depression, may not attend face-to-face appointments precisely because their symptoms (low mood, lack of energy, etc.) make it difficult for them to keep appointments. Assertively maintaining contact with patients dramatically improves treatment concordance and adherence to therapeutic activities. This is far better than merely recording such people as ‘Did not attend’ or even discharging them
  • Costs for therapy can be minimised as charges for therapist time over telephone/video calling is less than face to face
