Therapy rooted in science.

Brightside Therapy delivers a 12-week program under the Unified Protocol, which is a modern enhancement to traditional Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
After completing the Unified Protocol, 63% of people achieve remission-level symptoms and this number grows to 76% 3 months after treatment ended.
Unfortunately, traditional talk psychotherapy can’t produce the same results and can take an average of 57 sessions to show a clinically meaningful benefit.
