The end of therapy on the couch? New counselling app means patients can be treated for conditions like stress, depression or anorexia in their own homes

Think therapy sessions and you're likely to imagine a patient reclined on a couch, being questioned by a softly-spoken doctor. But now a new smartphone app is promising to take therapy to patients - allowing them access to the treatment they need wherever they are. The babylon Therapy app is a digital counselling service designed so people can take part in phone or video consultations while on the go - or from the comfort of their own home.
