Make finding a counsellor easy
We believe that finding a counsellor should be easy. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to find the right one. The world of therapy can be a bit daunting if you don’t know what to look for or where to start – that’s why we’re here to help. We’ve created an online booking service based in Edinburgh that helps individuals find the perfect therapist for them.
Counselling isn’t like any other service. It’s a bit like a relationship in many ways (not as scary as it sounds, we promise!). You want to find a good match so that you can do the work together and feel comfortable doing so. We’re here to help people get there.
Remove the stigma
We’re changing the way people view mental health for the good. But we still have some way to go. We want to be a part of getting the world to a place where it’s easy for people to say they’ve had or are having a counselling session if they want to.
You’ve got an ache in your tooth? You go to the dentist. You’re feeling ill? You go to the doctor. So let’s go to counselling when there’s something causing us issues in our mind.
It’s not always easy to make that first step, but we want people to know that it’s worth it. We want everyone to be proud of taking that first step.
Make counselling accessible
One of the main mottos at Talk and Grow is “counselling is for everyone”. This is because we believe everyone should feel as though they can arrange to speak to someone when they need to. Therapy is not just for those with mental health problems, which is sometimes a misconception people believe. It is, in fact, for anyone who needs to talk. That’s why we’re here.
