Therapy can be useful for when we are in times of crisis, suffering mental and physical ill health, feeling stuck in life or just need someone private to talk to. But accessing services can bring it's own challenges. Long waiting lists for health services and charities mixed with high costs to see someone private. Founder, Jordan Gooding, found the whole experience in itself stressful when she was looking for a therapist herself and so she wanted to make the process easier for anyone who is seeking therapy so the focus can be on what really matters. Which is why she set up TherapyAccess to provide affordable and flexible counselling and therapy services to meet the needs of the client.
