Our Vision

We work on a best practice foundation. We are licensed by the Care Quality Commission, the national health regulatory body for England, Wales and Northern Ireland and by Health Improvement Scotland. Our network of professionals are highly trained, registered with a suitable professional body and vetted by us.

We also insist on further standards that accord with our approach to practice. Everyone in our network is known to us personally and is experienced and comfortable in the online space. We also have many professionals fluent in foreign languages and at ease in different cultural settings.

Our technology is highly secure. It is also reliable and easy to use.

Our vision is not only to reach out and help individuals seeking help. We also work with universities, therapy practices, and wider businesses as a trusted partner to help broaden access to mental health services for their students, clients, and employees.
