Round the clock online therapy and counselling service launches across the UK and USA
24/7 online therapy and counselling service launches across the UK
MindSpace 247 offers an instant confidential, dial-in service to a qualified BACP therapist, without the need for a GP appointment or referral
Scottish businessman and founder of British investment society, The League of Angels, co-founded MindSpace 247, to help the country “get back on its feet”. Barney Battles said:
“We needed to explore other, alternative ways of access to qualified professional therapists and counsellors. Exploring other methodologies is essential to give everyone quality healthcare and ultimately this can only help release pressure off the NHS. We developed MindSpace 247 not as a crisis line, but to support both British enterprise and the population after one of the worst years in living memory. We have a bank of therapists and anyone calling in is only 90 seconds away from being transferred, to a professional, trained expert, to help you work out ways to deal with almost every issue, from anxiety, stress, financial worry and relationship issues to addiction, exam pressure, depression, loneliness and bereavement etc. We need to move together to find a way forward because the recovery will take years.”

Dr Arthur Cassidy, a respected chartered psychologist and mental health practitioner said:
“I see psychological distress and mental health breakdown constantly in my clinic, however the recent research by the Royal College of Psychiatrists and other learned bodies, show us that we are predicting a massive upsurge in mental health displacement breakdown. Without intervention, this is going to promote poor GP waiting lists and the longer the lists become, the more psychological distress there will be.”
Former England International rugby player, sports commentator and business owner, Tom May has chosen to be an ambassador. Tom said:
“Coming from the world of professional sport, I understand the link between physical and mental health. Having made the transition away from rugby in 2015, I am fully aware of the impact mental health can have, no matter who you are. There are so many simple actions that we can take to help our everyday wellbeing, both from a physical and mental standpoint, but there are also times when you need outside support. This is why this feels so right, especially after such a huge focus on mental health. From my own experience, I know that this stuff should not be ignored. We need to be more open to talking about our emotions. It’s not something to be afraid of.”
The team behind MindSpace 247 is keen to emphasise that the on-line therapy service is not a crisis line such as The Samaritans. It is an immediate appointment to talk directly to a highly qualified therapist from the comfort of your own home or workplace, without a long GP waiting list or referral. Confidential appointments can be made by telephone or Zoom.
