Therapy Directory is a listings website of registered professional therapists. The site provides the UK with a nationwide directory of complementary and alternative therapists, enabling anyone in need of this service to find a therapist close to them quickly and easily.
Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is the term used to describe a variety of health care systems and practices which are currently not considered to be part of standard healthcare. More specifically, complementary medicine is that which is used alongside conventional medicine and is aptly named as it is intended to 'complement' and enhance the standard healthcare treatment an individual is already receiving.
Why choose Life Coach Directory?
Life Coach Directory only lists life coaches who are registered with a recognised professional body or those who have sent us copies of their qualifications and insurance cover.
What is a life coach?
A life coach is an individual who supports and encourages people to fulfil their potential and really make the most of their life. A life coach can help to empower individuals to take control of their life, or certain areas of their life, for example, their career, confidence/self belief, finances, health, relationships, spirituality and/or work/life balance.
It can be easy to lose direction in our lives and life coaching aims to explore ways to enhance the skills, qualities and creativity we already have but may not be making the most of. Life coaching often involves exploring our attitudes, beliefs and values, discussing our aims in life and setting appropriate goals to help us to reach them. Unlike trying to achieve goals on our own, having a life coach should help to keep us committed, motivated and focussed. Just like sports men and women have their own coach, a life coach helps us to become the best we can be in our own lives.

Would you like to join our new service user consultative group?
Who are we?
We are a team of researchers working on the Interface Project – a study about the experience of mental health service users who come into contact with the Police.
We are putting together a service user group and we would like advice from people with experience and knowledge of these services to help our research.
We want to find out about people’s journeys through and between the police and mental health services in order to improve joint working and improve the service user experience.
Who can I contact for more information or if I would like to take part?
If you would like any further details about the research or would like to ask any questions about participating in this service user group, please contact:
