About It's Complicated

In 2019, two therapists set out to tackle a complicated problem.

The psychiatrist Carl Jung once wrote that, “Nobody, as long as he moves about among the chaotic currents of life, is without trouble”. One does not have to be a therapist, though, to realize that life is complicated. But finding the right therapist, who you can build a strong relationship with, shouldn’t have to be. This is the founding principle of It’s Complicated.Since our start, we've helped over 23,000 clients and counting, offering thousands of free crisis support hours, and built thriving therapy communities in Berlin, Amsterdam, London, Munich, and Athens.

Online Therapy: Everything you need to know

How does online counselling at It's Complicated work?

Looking for the perfect therapist to address your specific needs? Unlike traditional in-person therapy, remote video therapy opens up a world of choices, allowing you to select from a diverse pool of therapists with varying specialties, language proficiencies, and cultural insights. Whether you're struggling with anxiety, depression, or any other mental health issue, you can find your ideal match by filtering through different preferences until you discover the perfect fit. On It's Complicated, you can get fast and thoughtful personal responses directly from therapists, try text therapy, and use our GDPR-compliant video solution for sessions. If you need some more help in finding a qualified online therapist, It’s Complicated offers a free matching service, where our in-house therapists will try to find the best match for you based on your individual needs and preferences.


Is online therapy effective?

But what about effectiveness? Recent studies have shown that online therapy is not only as effective as face-to-face therapy but can also offer practical and accessible healthcare solutions. An analysis of multiple studies published in the international journal Clinical Psychology & Psychotherapy revealed that therapy is no less effective when delivered via videoconferencing than in-person, with efficacy being most pronounced in treatment for anxiety, depression, and PTSD. Likewise, an additional study published in the Journal of Affective Disorders demonstrated that online Cognitive Behavioural Therapy was as effective as in-person treatment in addressing panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, and generalised anxiety disorder. Moreover, online therapy isn't just effective; it's also cost-effective. A study published in Behaviour Research and Therapy highlighted the cost-effectiveness of online cognitive behavioural therapy for anxiety disorders. Positive improvements were sustained even at the one-year follow-up, indicating the long-term benefits of online therapy.


What are the advantages of online counselling?

Beyond its clinical efficacy, online therapy provides a flexible solution that enables you to connect with therapists from the comfort of your own environment. Whether it's during weekends, evenings, or in the early hours of the morning, and with the flexibility of both video and chat options, you can receive therapy tailored to your preferences. Expats, remote workers, and those living in rural areas also benefit from the added choices that online therapy offers, irrespective of location or language proficiency. Additionally, long waiting periods for appointments are completely circumvented. Here's a guide on the efficacy of online therapy if you'd like to find out more information.
