Our approach
to therapy

Children don’t need to suffer with their mental health. Mable's online counsellors are here to help.

Online counselling,
backed by science

Research suggests that online counselling can be just as effective as in-person counselling for children and teenagers. In fact, studies have found that online therapy can lead to positive outcomes for a wide range of mental health concerns, including anxiety, depression, and behavioural issues.

Online counselling provides increased accessibility, flexibility, and comfort for children, which can improve their engagement in the therapy process and overall outcomes.





Building the

It’s essential that your child trusts their counsellor, so they feel comfortable sharing their feelings. Your Mable counsellor will approach the sessions with warmth, empathy, and a non-judgmental attitude to help your child feel comfortable and understood. 

Finding the
right approach

Our bespoke platform uses gamified technology to reduce anxiety and make sessions engaging. Research shows that most children prefer this approach over traditional in-person sessions.

The platform features resources and activities that support a wide range of therapeutic approaches, including CBT, solution-focused therapy or art therapy. So whatever support your child needs, we have the resources to support them.


Exploring ideas with the Mable Canvas

The Mable Canvas has resources and activities to support all of these therapeutic approaches. Together, your child and their counsellor can use the Canvas to record any ideas, reflections or goals. Their canvas becomes a working document that they can add to throughout their therapy, giving them an ongoing record of their progress and success.

Practising strategies
and techniques

Our therapists often share strategies that can help the child or young person to regulate their emotions, such as breathing techniques, mindfulness and challenging negative thoughts. Mable’s platform has engaging activities that model these strategies, helping your child to practise them in a fun and low-anxiety way before using them in the real world. 



Using interactive games to reduce anxiety

Counselling sessions will often involve talking about difficult subjects. Our counsellors are skilled at balancing the light and shade of the sessions, so they don’t become stressful or overwhelming. The Mable platform has captivating games for all ages. They’re designed to reduce anxiety through play and can act as light relief if difficult subjects are being explored.
