Independent healthcare provider Ascenti acquires My Online Therapy



Independent health and wellbeing provider, Ascenti, has acquired mental health technology company My Online Therapy, which offers virtual psychology and counselling services through a smartphone app.

The acquisition of My Online Therapy is Ascenti’s third acquisition in recent years, following the purchase of a Danish tech business, Reach, in 2021, and London-based private physiotherapy company, Six Physio, in 2022.

CEO of Ascenti, Stephanie Dobrikova, commented: “We’re so pleased to announce the acquisition of My Online Therapy, whose mental health technology platform offers a market leading patient experience, via virtual appointments and self-care.” 

My Online Therapy is the UK’s first ‘virtual psychology clinic’, providing access to therapies by matching users to the most appropriate therapeutic approach and the best therapist for their situation.

Once a user selects how to connect with the psychologist and receive therapy, they have three communication options: video, live chat or daily messaging.

Dobrikova added: “We are renowned for our leading MSK physiotherapy provision but are also a well-established provider of mental wellbeing services, with over 25 years of experience and having managed more than 20,000 patients to date.

“Our growing in-house mental health team are very excited about the recent acquisition.

“This move will accelerate our strategic ambitions in the mental wellbeing space and help us to replicate the success of our virtual physiotherapy services.”

Ascenti has a growing team of employed CBT therapists, EMDR (eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing therapy) therapists and psychologists, allowing the business to manage up to 80 per cent of mental health referrals in-house.

The company now employs more than 800 staff operating as independent healthcare providers to public and private sectors.
