Whether you are using a laptop, smartphone or tablet you can access your sessions at a time and place that works best for you without adding extra stress to your day. You can easily book and control your sessions online through your MyHealios area.

How it Works

Step 1: Enrolment

A member of the Healios team will speak with you over the phone to understand your situation and eligibility for our service and if the service is covered by the NHS in your area. We will then set up your log-in information and book your first appointment with a clinician matched specifically to you and your loved ones’ needs. You have the option to include your loved one in the sessions as well so you can.

Step 2: Your First Session

Through a live online video session, our clinician will clarify your situation, needs, goals and any roadblocks that are getting in the way. Together, we will develop a plan so that you can move forward and take effective steps to providing the best support possible for your loved one while ensuring you stay healthy as well.

Step 3: On-going Coaching and Support

During each session, your clinician will provide new techniques and skills that work well for you and give you the confidence you need to address any situation that may arise. Over several sessions, your clinician will continue to support and coach you to make these new skills work for you and your unique situation. All of the techniques you are taught will appear in your private MyHealios area, so you’ll have them to reference whenever you need them. Your clinician is your partner throughout this journey with Healios and will be with you every step of the way.

Step 4: Moving Forward After Healios

With new skills, understanding, confidence and a stronger relationship with your loved one, you’ll be taking big steps toward providing the best environment for long-term success. If you face new challenges and would like further support from Healios, contact us and we can pick up where we left off.
