About Russell Wharton

About Russell Wharton


Originally from the North East of England, Russell moved to Norfolk in 1997. He began a career as a mental health nurse before training in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR).

“In 2016 I left the NHS to set up my own private psychotherapy practice and this has been very successful. During the Covid 19 pandemic, my work moved from in person to online. What I, and many other therapists and clients, learned is that online therapy is just as effective, and often more convenient to the patient, as in person therapy.“

Benefits of online therapy

Benefits of online therapy

Accessing therapy online has a few benefits compared to the stress of attending an in-person appointment.

  • It’s easier to fit around work, childcare and other life commitments.
  • Sessions in the comfort of your home can feel more private and less anxiety-provoking than going to a clinic.
  • Online therapy opens up the option of seeing a therapist in a completely different part of the UK to where you currently live.
  • Seeing a therapist in person in a big city can be expensive. You can meet with an equally qualified accredited therapist online for a more competitive price.
  • The first session is so important - with an online initial assessment you won’t arrive stressed having had to find the building, work out parking etc.
  • Sessions can still take place if your car breaks down or you are suffering a minor illness.
  • Kinder to the environment.
  • For clients with conditions such as Fibromyalgia or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, attending in person has a physical impact that can be avoided by online access.
