Finding a therapist often takes time and effort.

Firstly, you may spend time researching your particular concern, mental health difficulties more generally, and the different types of therapy available. From CBT to psychodynamic, drama therapy to body psychotherapy: there are a lot of different types of therapeutic treatment, and it can be difficult to establish which one appeals to you the most.

The welldoing.org questionnaire (which filters your results based on simple jargon-free questions) will narrow down your options. Sometimes the search for the right therapist doesn't neatly end at the point at which you locate the therapist profile that appeals to you. We know it is the experience of many people searching for therapists: you spend time crafting your initial contact and send this to your chosen therapist, to unfortunately find out that this therapist isn't available when you are, or can't offer you sessions at a fee that you can afford. 

Far from being merely a slight annoyance, this kind of hurdle can really set you back on the search for the right therapist. It's not an easy thing to do, especially if you aren't feeling your best - even more so if you are feeling far from your best. 

We've set up welldoing.org's Personalised Matching Service with this in mind. This is a paid-for service, with a one-off cost of £48. The Personalised Matching Service involves a more in-depth assessment, which is anonymously reviewed by a mental health professional. Based on their expert guidance, we will scour our database of brilliant, verified therapists and find the right one for you. Once we've located a suitable match, we'll contact them on your behalf, to ensure they are available when you are and to confirm they can work within your budget. 

Once all the criteria are met, we'll introduce you to your therapist - and if for any reason at all you don't feel it's a good match, we'll try again for no extra cost.

Invest in you this year with the Personalised Matching Service.
