Time to Change


We are a growing movement of people changing how we all think and act about mental health problems. Join our movement in Waltham Forest which is now a Time to Change funded hub, one of the first in London.


Time to Change Champions are a movement of people across the country who use their own experience of mental health problems to change the way we all think and act about mental health.

When you are going through a difficult time, it can be very easy to keep your worries to yourself and believe that you are the only one experiencing such painful feelings. While we all have our own ways of coping, information and support can make a huge difference.


We launched Counselling Directory in 2005 and continue to work closely with counsellors, psychotherapists and our visitors, to ensure we provide you with the very best service. We have over 10,000 qualified counsellors listed with us, so we are sure the right person is waiting to hear from you.
