MindBeacon's Therapist Guided Program

How It Works

therapist_guided_program_step_1
1
Create an account and get started right away.

Tell us about yourself, your feelings and your situation, so that your therapist can understand you better.

After you create and verify your secure account, you’ll start your first session – a full MindBeacon Assessment.

We've re-created what in some cases can be a 60- to-90-minute in-person interview in an online assessment that takes about 30 minutes and can be completed on your own time, anywhere.

We suggest setting aside a time in which you won’t be interrupted to complete this important first step in your journey.

therapist_guided_program_step_2
2
A therapist creates a plan designed just for you.

Through secure direct messages, readings and activities, your therapist will help you develop the skills you need to thrive.

A therapist will take the time to personally review your assessment. (This can take 3 to 5 business days, depending on volumes.)

If our program is a good fit for your unique needs, you will be matched with the therapist best suited to create your personalized treatment plan.

If our program is not appropriate, they will suggest other resources for you to contact.

therapist_guided_program_step_3
3
Complete your personalized program in 6 to 12 weeks.

Work one-on-one with your dedicated therapist for up to 12 weeks and access your resources for up to 1 year.

Our program offers 12 weeks of guided treatment with a therapist. Most people complete their course of treatment in 6 to 10 weeks.

Your therapist will respond to your messages and check in with you every few days.

Once you reach 12 weeks of treatment, you will still be able to access your materials (readings, worksheets and more) for an additional 40 weeks.

What's a Therapist Guided Program?

 

MindBeacon's Therapist Guided Program is based in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

With more than 40 years of research and practice, CBT is an excellent long-term solution for those suffering from mood and anxiety disorders.

It’s a skills-building approach to therapy, helping you develop resiliency and coping skills to better manage your mental health concerns. It consists of readings, exercises and activities that will help you learn and practice those new skills.

What people are saying about MindBeacon

I’m finding the therapy to be very helpful. I’ve never done therapy online, but feel I’ve got a good relationship with my therapist. I'm very glad I took this step to reach out for help.

My therapist has been so supportive, and I appreciate her time and thoughts. I'm looking forward to learning more and feeling better about things.

I wouldn’t be where I am today without this program. Traditional therapy approaches weren’t constant enough for me to work towards change. MindBeacon made me feel safe knowing I have my therapist and the tools right at my fingertips.

I found the flexibility most appealing as I didn’t have to sacrifice taking time off from work for therapy. Messaging and going through the exercises with someone to guide me made it successful. 

I've really gained more confidence in my abilities to tackle different solutions. And my therapist has given me motivation and positive reinforcement along the way. It’s all having a positive impact on me.
