Tips for finding the right therapist, counsellor or coach
Read the therapists’ and coaches' profiles, any articles they have written, or visit their websites. Many have completed our Meet the Therapist and Meet the Coach interviews, which will help you understand the way they work.
Therapists and coaches set their own prices and hours, so look for someone to fit your budget and schedule.
When you are ready to connect, use the 'contact me' button on their profile to send them a message. It's usual to give a brief outline of what you want to talk about.
You can book and pay for an appointment with the therapists and coaches who offer online booking. Otherwise our members will let you know about charges and times.
If you would like to use online booking and your chosen therapist or coach doesn’t have it set up, just let us know.
And if you need more help, simply get in touch by emailing [email protected], or using the Intercom facility on the site.
