About Us

Founded in 2017, we’re an expert bunch of counsellors and mental health trainers.

Our research with the NHS and Imperial College London shows not everyone knows where to turn for mental health support. And when they do, they often encounter unsuitable or unavailable services.

The Mind Map navigates people to better mental health by putting appropriate support in one place. From relatable counsellors who’ve been there, to a database of free services, plus information, articles and mental health training. It’s all here for you.  

Our We Get You, We Got You mantra evokes our team’s lived experience of mental ill health.  Our founder Phil was motivated to launch The Mind Map in 2017 after struggling for years to find appropriate support for his OCD and anxiety. The We Got You part? You’ll see the quality of our counselling and training from our five star reviews on Trust Pilot. You can also read case studies from the successful work we’ve done to support staff mental health at companies including eBay, the NHS, Netflix and Facebook. 

As a profit for purpose organisation, we work in our communities offering free counselling and training to those in need. Read all about our socially conscious work in our news section.
