The start of something revolutionary for the therapy industry.

We hope to be the difference between a therapist spending hours on something they weren’t trained to do or spending valuable time talking to people that need their help. This is Design Wellness, a platform and outlet for therapists and counsellors to change how they represent their business, practice or therapy session online. Oh and it doesn’t cost the world either, and it should never cost the world.

Effectively communicating how you can help a person in need is the reason why me (Graham and James) started Design Wellness. Our passion is putting into practice what we think we’re good at and leaving things we aren’t so good at to the people that are trained in them. You wouldn’t race Usain Bolt to the shops would you? Well if you’re a therapist or counsellor, you probably shouldn’t spend time designing your website.

Our background

Okay, so no big statement should be left without a little back up right? Me and James have been in the online web industry for 20 years combined. Over those years we’ve helped clients ranging from independent pet shops looking to help sausage dogs through to the industry leaders that sell overpriced trainers. 

We have learnt how to design, build and market businesses taking them from zero clients to more clients than they can cope with. We only learnt this through trial and error, neither me or James were trained in online marketing. We were actually trained in how to make nice looking websites, but nice looking websites are only worthwhile if someone is looking at them and this has no bigger meaning than in the mental health sector.

So why the therapy industry?

Therapy and in general mental health is a subject close to our heart, we’ve seen the impact first hand how speaking to people either professionally or through friends can help alleviate negative thoughts or completely change a person’s outlook. 

By utilising the skills we’ve learnt we feel we can raise awareness and more importantly connect people that might not have known support was out there. We don’t just want to provide a throwaway service that feels great initially but then leaves you feeling empty a month down the line. We want to continually help you, help your audience.

Why now

Over half of all mental health problems reported were for people aged between 18 and 49. That statistic taken from the national institute of mental health (https://www.nimh.nih.gov) alongside the fact that nearly 20% of all adolescents may experience such a problem in the course of a year highlights that the age of people requiring help is getting lower and lower. 

Understanding how best to reach this audience and connect with them can be difficult for any counsellor, especially when the age range of an average counsellor is around 53. It’s no secret that young adults are utilising social media more and more, and as the connected world increases so does the need to match that with how people are providing and increasing awareness of mental health services. 

We hope to bridge that gap by taking advantage of social media, email marketing and a consistent message across all platforms, helping counsellors understand how to make their voice heard and more importantly make it easier for people to connect and contact them.

Our future

We hope to become an invaluable resource for beginners and trained therapists, offering them a complete solution to manage their website, social media and marketing presence. We will be launching in October and over the coming weeks updating this area regularly with what James and myself are up to! Give us a follow on our social media @designwellnessuk or on Facebook
