Online Wellbeing Programme

The Online Wellbeing Programme - Take the first steps to improving your wellbeing through our free online support service, aimed at boosting your mental and emotional health. This is a confidential service and is available to people who live, work and study in the Barnet borough.


Are you experiencing?

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Low mood


Could you benefit from taking some time out just for yourself? 


Do you want to learn new ways to improve your wellbeing and emotional health?


Do you want to start living your best life?


You can start today by registering for our FREE Online Wellbeing Programme. Take the first steps to improving your wellbeing, all from the comfort of your own home. You just need internet access, an email address and a smartphone, tablet or computer.


Each online course is delivered by qualified therapist Dr Mike Scanlan. Each week he will provide you with the tools and ideas you need to improve your life.


Don't just take our word for it. This is some recent feedback from people just like you who have completed this course:

If you are worried that these sessions are not private or confidential, please don't be. You won't be seen or heard by anyone other than Dr Mike Scanlan.


Even better, you can access the session from the comfort and security of your own home and if you miss a session, you can watch it at another time convenient for you.


What's the catch? There isn't one. This course is free to Barnet residents, employees and students over the age of 18. What do you have to lose? Sign up and start living again.


We have the following courses running over the next few months:

What is a webinar?


It is an online, interactive session allowing participants in different locations to watch a live video session and ask questions. Participating is easy and all you need is access to the internet via a smartphone, laptop or tablet.


Worried about confidentiality? Don’t be! During the online sessions you are completely anonymous. Other participants cannot see or hear you.


You don’t have to ask questions – if you wish, you can just sit back and listen to the presenter. It is up to you and there isn’t any pressure to join in and interact.



  • Convenient – the live sessions run from 7pm-8pm on selected weeknights. If you’re busy on the evening of the session, you can still register and watch the recording at another time convenient to you.
  • Free - the Online Wellbeing Programme is free to all Barnet residents, employees and students over the age of 18.
  • Accessible – easy access using the internet via a smartphone, laptop or tablet.
  • Live and Interactive - each session is delivered by qualified professionals where individuals can ask questions.
  • Anonymous - other participants cannot see or hear each other.
  • Responsive - the service allows us to respond to an individual’s needs by offering an alternative to other services that may have long waiting times or lack access to specialist professionals.
