The right therapist, first time

Therapy can be a life-changing experience, but you need a therapist who understands you and who offers an approach that fits.

Headroom offer a free 50 minute telephone consultation with one of our Therapy Consultants (accredited Psychologists and Counsellors). This is an opportunity for us to get to know you and establish which therapy is going to most effectively meet your needs. 

Your Consultant will then personally identify the most suitable accredited counsellor, psychotherapist or psychologist in your local area.

Headroom's service is for adults (aged 18 or over) only.

  Headroom is operated by Psychologists registered with Health Care Professionals Council - the UK's independent healthcare professional regulator.

Fees and services

 The consultation is free with no hidden charges. 

Following the consultation you decide if you would like Headroom to find you a therapist. If you need to sleep on it, feel free to take some time to reflect before making a decision.

If you would like us to find you a therapist, Headroom's matching service costs £54.50 and includes: 

  • Clear recommendations for therapy based on a thorough assessment of your needs, preferences and budget.

  • A personally matched therapist selected by your Therapy Consultant.

We also:

  • Arrange you first appointment at a time that suits you.

  • Provide your therapist with an assessment report containing our recommendations and relevant background information. 

 What does the consultation involve?

The consultation takes around 50 minutes and during this time we will discuss your reasons for seeking therapy, and what type of therapy would be best suited to you; as well as all of your general preferences such as location, budget and availability.  Your Therapy Consultant will then personally match you with a therapist. If you have any questions about the process of therapy and what it involves, we can also talk this through with you.

You only share what you feel comfortable with. We don't need to know everything, just enough for us to make informed recommendations and match you with the right therapist. 

The Headroom Team


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 Headroom, Steve works for adult NHS Mental Health Services in Devon with clients with complex difficulties. His motivation to start 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. 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. Headroom is here to make sure that people get the help that is right for them."



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 Headroom where she looks after the operational side of the organisation, Hayley works in NHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services.



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 Headroom's referrals. 


Headroom made the process of finding a therapist simpler and took away the aspect of worry about what sort of person I should be matched with.
