We are all parents and have, in our personal and professional capacities, experienced the distress of families who struggle to find the right help for their loved ones when serious emotional, behavioural and mental health challenges arise. There is so much overwhelming information online, with the potential of tools for connecting people usefully, to each other and essential services. Our mission is to help make mental health care more accessible and affordable.
Our aim is to bring clients and clinicians together, reducing red tape and costs. We hope to support clinicians in working independently, thereby reducing the price of mental health care to clients. We seek to enable clients to easily compare and access services, viewing reassuring feedback. We aspire to make this service available to people of all ages whenever they are in need of help, to look after their emotional and mental wellbeing.
We can also offer bespoke packages of services to schools, colleges, universities, businesses, social care and other organisations. Email email@example.com to find out more.

“Welfare, mindfulness and wellbeing are central to education, and in my view, are the central pillars that prepare us all to handle the ebbs and flows of our personal and professional lives. Many of us feel well prepared to handle most things but there are inevitably life events which can cause us to doubt and question ourselves. It is often in these moments we look for help. For children and young adults, such help is almost impossible to find without some guidance and direction. I have seen first-hand how good the best help can be and the positive impact it can have on the those who have benefitted from it. We must seek to provide access to the very best professional advice, for the widest range of people.”
