Who we are

We partner with organisations to provide therapeutic treatment and support to their people.

Our Ethos

Employees are the experts of their lived experience and we are the experts of psychological and evidenced based therapeutics. Together, and within our therapeutic relationship, we work collaboratively with clients to deliver timely psychological treatment and therapeutic support.

Evidence and experience tells us that supporting an individual in distress within a workplace will have positive consequences for the entire team and culture. In turn, the organisation will see improved productivity and reputation, and they’ll be better able to retain and attract talent.

In short, mentally healthy workplaces are better for everybody, and Agile Mental Health exists to help create healthy cultures – cultures people value and want to be part of.

Our Beliefs

We believe people's relationship with themselves and others is shaped by their social context.

We believe human experience exists within paradoxes; that life is complex and shouldn't be oversimplified.

We believe humans are predisposed to healing, and healing happens in relationships – the therapeutic relationship being one.

We know, because evidence tells us, that the therapeutic relationship can create positive change even after a single session.
