Welcome To

The Therapy Movement


The Therapy Movement has been especially conceptualised and designed, to meet the growing need for quality, client focussed psychology and counselling services, whilst having the resources and systems to support the best clinicians in doing what they love to do – supporting clients.

The first plans were made in early 2020 for The Therapy Movement, with a vision to bring together the very best of practice management into the therapeutic space of psychological services. We wanted hand-picked clinicians, specialists in their individual fields, to have to only focus on delivering evidenced, professional psychological interventions, to children, young people, adults, couples and families. Our vision is that every client who engages with The Therapy Movement, is carefully matched with a clinician who is an expertise in meeting their individual needs. We wanted to create a safe space for clients to feel immediately comfortable to discuss not just their mental health, but their unique world. And, we wanted the best systems and processes behind the scenes, to allow clients and therapists to just that.

The Therapy Movement has created this vision through the expertise of our Directors. A highly experienced practice manager who has established and maintained a career in managing psychological services, and the therapeutic lens of a proficient mental health clinician who merges almost two decades of direct client practice with teaching in academia.
