SilverCloud in Powys
What is SilverCloud?
SilverCloud is a new exciting online solution that provides a broad range of programmes based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). It offers an online course with support to empower you to develop skills to manage your psychological wellbeing with more confidence, from the convenience of your own location and in your own time.
What is CBT?
CBT is a psychological therapy that works on the relationships between thoughts (cognitions), behaviours and feelings. CBT teaches you how to recognise and tackle problems here and now, rather than in the past. It has been widely studied and has been proven to work especially on depression and anxiety.
Once you have set up your online account and started the therapy, you will receive regular reviews every 2 weeks, by your SilverCloud Supporter, for up to 12 weeks (6 reviews in total)
Upon registration and after every two-week review, you will be required to answer a series of questions as part of your therapy.
Your SilverCloud Supporter will offer administrative and technical support as well as ongoing encouragement throughout your therapy. Should you require clinical advice, please contact your referring healthcare professional.
The programme is built up of a number of programmes and modules selected for you personally that you can complete at your own pace. The guided time frame for completion is 12 weeks, but you will have access to the platform for a total of 12 months from the date of registration. One of the main benefits of SilverCloud is that you can dip in and out as much or as little as you feel is suitable. The programme is very easy to use, and the use of interactive tools makes your experience interesting and motivational.
There is also an app that can be downloaded on to any smart device.
