Professional support comes in many forms and can help you on your journey to finding happiness, accepting change, or with a specific issue or illness you’re facing

Here at Happiful, we understand that seeking support for your mental health is a big step and, more specifically, finding the right person who can help can be a challenge. If you are ready to find help and support, then you are already proactively looking after yourself and those around you – and that’s a huge achievement.

But, we are all different. Therefore, the support and help that works for each of us will be different, too.

Crisis support

If you are in immediate danger of harming yourself or others, or finding yourself at crisis point, call 999 or go to A&E. If you need immediate, free advice or someone to speak to, call Samaritans on 116 123 or email them at jo@samaritans.org

Counselling and psychotherapy

One in four of us will experience a mental health problem each year and, for many, professional counselling and psychotherapy can be an important tool in managing and improving our day-to-day lives. Happiful are proud to have connected more than 1 million people with professional help, through our family website counselling-directory.org.uk

Counselling Directory is different to many online websites offering counselling – we don’t hide the details of each professional. We think it’s important you take the time to take a look through the profiles of each qualified professional near you to decide which therapist is best suited to your needs. You can make contact with the therapist by sending them a message, with as little or as much information as you like.
