Who can Psyma help
Therapists at Psyma are able to address many common mental health issues. Some of these conditions include anxiety, panic, phobias, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, physical health related problems, eating disorders and other complex presentations.
Psyma aims to help 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 allows for easy access to those who live in isolated areas, cannot access transport or have mobility issues. Psyma is, however, not able to offer help to those under the age of 18 or to those who are in pre-existing therapy.
Please note this service is not designed to help those experiencing a crisis. If you need help urgently please contact your GP or GP out of hour’s service. You can also call the Samaritans on 116 123 or your national crisis number.
How it works
It’s simple, just register, fill in details in your user area, choose a therapist and book a free initial 25 minute consultation. During your first session your therapist will tell you about the service, the process of therapy and answer any questions you may have. Sessions will take place in a secure online therapy room, communicating via video call. When you are ready to proceed you can book and attend sessions with your chosen therapist at a time and place convenient to you. If you need assistance in picking the right therapist for you, contact us and we will help.

Ratings and Reviews
No technical support / Awful!
Downloaded app and scheduled first 25min free appt for next day. Found it odd that the app didn’t allow me to see available dates beyond this week in August and then jumped to the following month. Also weird that the app contained no messaging system for questions / technical errors etc, but ok. So appt time comes around and I enter “waiting room” - and nothing. I wait 12 minutes and the try restarting the app. I got a white screen saying signalling error and that’s it. Full 30 mins now since my appt was supposed to start. No contact from the doctor/app - both I presume can see my contact info and could just email or call to say, hey we’re sorry. I had to write an email to the general contact us section on their website to even say there’s been an issue. What an incredibly unprofessional bunch of people. These aren’t hairdressing’s appointments.
