Dr Rumina Taylor - HelloSelf
We understand that accessing Therapy can be challenging. What kind of Therapy do I need? What if I don’t like the Therapist? How am I going to find the time to get to their clinic? How do I know if it will work? How much will it cost? How long will I need it for?
At HelloSelf we have tried to build a Stress free way of getting you the help you need:
Our Therapists are all accredited psychologists or psychological therapists trained to Ph.D level or equivalent using clinically proven methods. Because we are online you get the best Therapist for you… not just the closest.
We want to help you get well and stay well. We’re the only Therapy service that offers support to prevent stress and keep you well.
Your Privacy is paramount to us at HelloSelf. That’s why we protect your data with strong encryption and we promise never to share, sell or show your data to anyone without your permission.
Trying to find the time from work, family, and life to spend at the clinic is hard. At HelloSelf you can talk to your Therapist when you want, where you want and how you want - chat, call, video.
