How to find a therapist using

There are various ways to find a therapist on and the best route will depend on how much help you need. From a simple postcode search to a personal matching service, we can help you find the right therapist to see in person or online. 

  • Questionnaire – if you aren’t sure exactly what you are looking for, our easy-to-use questionnaire will take you through a handful of questions to give you the top selections of suitable therapists in your area of choice. 
  • Search and filter – if you know what you are looking for, use the Find a Therapist page to search by postcode then use the filters on the left to refine your search.  
  • Personalised Matching Service – short on time, or simply can't make up your mind? Complete an extended assessment which is anonymised before being reviewed by a mental health professional. There is a charge of £48 for this popular premium service.

Tips for finding the right therapist

Read the therapists’ profiles, any articles they have written, or visit their websites. Many have completed our Meet the Therapist questionnaire which will help you understand the way they work.

Therapists 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 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 who offer online booking. Otherwise therapists will let you know about charges and times.

If you would like to use online booking and your chosen therapist 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.
