How to find a therapist

How to find a therapist

Through our own experiences, we learnt how difficult it can be to find the right therapy, or therapist to suit your needs. This is why we created Therapy Directory.

We wanted a place where you can find information, ask for help and when you are ready, find a therapist that you resonate with and trust. In this article, we explore the process of finding a therapist who is right for you.


We understand that looking into a new therapy can be quite overwhelming, especially if there is one you don’t know much about. You may want to do some research before contacting a therapist, so you know what to expect and if it will help you.

On Therapy Directory, you can discover what types of therapies are available, how they can be beneficial and what to expect from a session. You will also find information on our Expert articles and Recent news sections of the website. This is where you will find articles written by our members and our in-house editorial team.

Finding a therapist

If you have decided that a certain type of therapy is right for you, the next step is to find a therapist you resonate with. To make the search easier, we encourage all our members to fill their profiles with as much information as possible. This means you can learn more about them, the way they work and if they are the person to help.

To find a therapist in your local area, you can use our advanced search tool. You can refine your search by therapy, location, type of therapist and any other keywords you feel are relevant.

Once you have clicked ‘search’ you will land on a page with a list of therapists near your location. The next step is to click on their profile and learn more about them. When you are ready to make contact, simply send them an email to book an initial consultation.
