These reviews enable clients to have a voice and share their experiences in plain language. findatherapist.co.uk verifies therapists' client engagement rates based on enquirers who have used findatherapist.co.uk to contact therapists and therapists' updates as to whether they attended 0, 1 or more sessions.
