My Questions

How do I know if I need therapy?

There is no one symptom which means to you need to speak to a Therapist. In fact most people could benefit from therapy… even if they are well. On HelloSelf you can start with a free session with a LifeCoach. They will ask you to take a number of tests and track some data. Based on this data we will recommend you either work with a LifeCoach or a Therapist.

If you want to take the NHS Mental Wellness Test and discuss the results with one of our LifeCoaches you can do so here.
