SilverCloud is an online programme that helps you to develop ways of managing your own emotional wellbeing.  It is based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) which focuses on the way in which thoughts can influence feelings and behaviours. Thoughts can be helpful and sometimes they can be unhelpful.

If you are feeling anxious, depressed or stressed you are more likely to have ‘negative thinking’ and SilverCloud encourages you to develop a more balanced way of thinking that is more helpful to you.

For example, if you wake up in the morning and think “today is going to be rubbish” chances are you are going to feel rubbish; however, if you wake up and think “today could be an ok day” then you are more likely to have an ok day. The way you think can influence the way you feel. It sounds straightforward but it takes practice to change the way you think, but it’s worth it to feel differently!

You work through the online programme for about 12 weeks with fortnightly online reviews providing you with support and guidance.

SilverCloud is right for you if;

  • You are over 16
  • You recognise that sometimes your own thinking can work against you, for example you have overly negative thoughts
