Developing Psychologists & Mental Health Practices
Whilst an academic setting equips mental health professionals with a huge variety of skills and knowledge, our experience has shown that therapists are often poorly prepared for breaking into the real world of private mental health care on their own. The challenges of establishing the business entity, understanding the regulatory and compliance-related issues and determining how best to promote the practice and reach those needing help can be daunting.
That’s where Flexmind comes in. Need Strategy, Processes, Websites, Marketing, Therapists, Systems, help with Regulations, Data Confidentiality to support your practice? We’ve got it covered.

We provide specialist business knowledge and capability to help you realise your personal and business goals. Our business development professionals are uniquely focused on mental health, psychology and wellness, they understand how to overcome the challenges you will face and set you on the path for career success.
Our mental health professional clients include everything from small one-person psychology, psychotherapist, counselling, therapy and hypnotherapy businesses to large multi-discipline mental health practices and centres.
We pride ourselves in our commitment to working with all clients, in the same way, irrespective of needs or size.

Growing you, Growing your clients
Supporting Therapists & their Practices
In our work, we encounter people the world over who are looking to develop a therapy business. Sometimes they have been working in hospitals or for charities, sometimes they’ve set up on their own and are looking for their first clients. At other times we encounter functioning practices of various sizes that need help upgrading their space, people, processes, marketing and risk management efforts.
In almost all cases we find counselling professionals needing to upgrade, automate, increase efficiency and implement controls over the processes in their practice to support areas such as securing their website and online services as well as helping them address regulations, and controls over data confidentiality. These are areas frequently overlooked and if you think this isn’t something you need to worry about because it’ll never happen to you or you work the old way – with telephone, and paper-based notes, we’ll help you understand the risks and we’ll show you examples where it has gone wrong for practitioners.
When we probe a little further we also find that they were wanting to increase and stabilise income streams through a constant flow of new business. At other times we encounter psychologists looking for conference speaking engagements, breaking out into the world of corporate training, media, or to implement new systems to increase the efficiency of their practices and client experience. Such systems would include online booking, payment, confirmations and often secure video counselling tools.
Whatever the objectives for your mental health practice Flexmind’s business development specialists – which include peer psychologists are here to help. Our global team and network is second to none. Whatever your needs we are equipped to be able to support you.

Taking your ideas, products and services to new markets
