About us

At Therapy Directory, we’ve made it our mission to make it as easy as possible to connect with a holistic therapist and access reliable and informative resources to help you on your well-being journey. Whether you have a health condition that could benefit from a form of therapy alongside medical treatment, or you're simply looking to better your overall well-being. Whatever your reason, know that it is all possible. We want to be the hand to guide you through these first steps to health and happiness.


Our story

Therapy Directory is part of a family of brands, grounded in family values. In 2005, sisters Aimi and Emma launched Counselling Directory, a website dedicated to promoting the benefits of talk therapy. They’d both experienced mental health issues as young women and knew how it felt to be overwhelmed and lacking guidance. They wanted to use their experience to help others find support from counsellors and psychotherapists.

Co-founder Aimi shares her journey on Fearne Cotton's Happy Place Podcast.

In the years that followed, we launched four other directories - all with the same mission to help people access support to improve their well-being. From counselling and nutrition support to hypnotherapy and coaching, our directories encompass all things health and wellness. These websites are a part of the Happiful family, a network of more than 26,000 professionals working online and across the UK.

Why choose us?

In our eyes, taking care of your health in a holistic way is the cornerstone of well-being, and we believe everyone deserves access to holistic therapies that work in this way. It’s our mission to make this process as easy as possible, giving you the tools you need to remain happy and healthy.

We understand that taking these first steps often takes time, to do the research, find a therapist and make contact - all of which can be daunting if you don’t know where to look, or what you’re looking for.

To get you started on your wellness journey, we have included everything we wish we’d had access to when taking our first steps to health and happiness, including:

  • A nationwide database of qualified holistic therapists.
  • An advanced search tool, which allows you to filter your therapist search according to your needs and location.
  • Detailed member profiles. Our members pack their profiles full of information including their background, fees, specialities and availability. This allows you to learn more about them and how they work before making contact.
  • A thorough approvals policy. This means all professionals are checked to ensure they provide evidence of qualifications or membership with a professional body before they can be listed with us. So, you can be sure of contacting a credible professional.
  • A detailed library of fact sheets featuring useful information about the various therapies available. Here you can learn more about how these types of therapies can benefit you on your journey.
  • An FAQs section that looks to answer any questions you may have.
  • Additional resources, such as events to further your learning, and expert articles written by professionals about holistic healing and well-being.
