Here's a 3-step guide for how to find the mental health professional to help you:

1) Read about what's worrying you

Whether you have a name for what you are feeling already or not, you can read our content about common mental health problems here. All of our content has been vetted by the counsellors on, so you can be sure it is trustworthy. 

2) Use our simple questionnaire or be professionally matched with the right therapist for you 

You can get started on our questionnaire here and in just a few steps you will be directed to the therapists and counsellors in your area who offer the services you are looking for. You will be asked about what's worrying you, how you would like to work, how soon you want to see someone and where you are based. Our therapist members have all filled out their own questionnaires when they join the site, so you will be matched with those whose expertise and availability match with what you need. 

We also offer a Personalised Matching Service where your needs are reviewed by a mental health professional and we match you with the right therapist. This means we do the leg work, making sure that we find you a counsellor who is available when you are and within your budget. Find out more about being matched here

“With the personalised matching service, I was confident I was matched with a therapist who I could be 100% sure of.” - Jonathan*

3) Book and pay online

We're the first therapy directory with a fully integrated booking and payment system. You can view your chosen therapist's availability on their diary and request the appointment slot that works for you. Once you and your therapist have agreed a meeting time, you can then pay for your appointment online, and not have to worry about cash on the day. Future payments are simple and secure, and will be taken automatically from your account before your next appointment. So you can forget about the traditional hand over of cash in person, and make the most of your therapy session. 

“My daughter quickly found a wonderful counsellor on Neither of us had known quite how to find someone who ticked all the boxes: a 'talker', female, not too 'old', who could help with bereavement and other issues that were crippling her self-confidence. Already I see a transformation in her.” - Marie*
