How it works

Starting therapy doesn't need to be stressful.

We have simplified the process of finding a good therapist.

Assess – Register with us and we will arrange a free phone or Skype consultation with one of our Clinical Psychologists who will assess your needs.

Match - We do the work and find someone matched specifically to your needs and budget. Our team of psychologists are experts at identifying the person and approach that will fit you. We take into account your budget, preferences, the problems you are experiencing, therapist characteristics and the research evidence of effectiveness for different approaches.

Support - If it doesn't work out with a therapist, as a part of our standard service we will offer you a telephone debrief, revise our search criteria and find you another therapist at no extra cost. As we pride ourselves on getting in right first time, we will continue to provide this debrief and therapist finding service as many times as is needed (terms and conditions apply).

Who are we?

Just in case you were wondering who we are, here is bit more information about the people who operate The Headroom.

DR STEPHEN ROCK HCPC REGISTERED CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGIST & FOUNDING PARTNER OF THE HEADROOM 

Steve has extensive experience in providing assessments and psychological therapies for adults struggling with a range of problems. Alongside his role as Clinical Director of The Headroom, Steve works for adult NHS Mental Health Services in Devon with clients with complex difficulties. His motivation to start the Headroom stems from his experiences on both sides of the consulting room - as a client looking for therapy and as a Psychologist offering it.

"Before I trained to be a Clinical Psychologist I tried to find a therapist for myself and found the number of options bewildering. With my professional hat on, the idea that a person should be left to choose a therapist without an assessment and some guidance makes no sense.  I also know that a good assessment involves talking to someone. It might sound obvious but to get a good sense of the issues I need to speak to a client and ask them about their life. Only then is it possible to match someone with the right person and approach. The Headroom was inspired by my personal and professional experience of how therapy can really change lives for the better, if it's the right therapy for that individual. The Headroom is here to make sure that people get the help that is right for them."

 

DR HAYLEY LEE HCPC REGISTERED CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGIST AND FOUNDING PARTNER OF THE HEADROOM

Like Steve, Hayley has worked in the NHS  for many years and is a highly skilled therapist who can offer a range of therapeutic interventions to match the needs of her clients. Alongside her work for The Headroom where she looks after the operational side of the organisation, Hayley works in NHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services.

 

EMMA MAGUIRE REFERRAL MANAGER AND BACP REGISTERED COUNSELLOR

Emma's excellent organisational skills developed in her previous roles as an Executive Assistant in the House of Commons and large business organisations combined with her knowledge of counselling and psychotherapy, make her a safe pair of hands when it comes to managing The Headroom's referrals.
