About us

When you come up against a problem, it can be hard to know where to turn for support. We're lucky that we live in a time where there are lots of professionals who can help in various ways, including ways you might not have considered before. Here at Hypnotherapy Directory, we recognise the power hypnosis can have in overcoming problems and making a lasting change. 

We also know the world of hypnotherapy can feel a little unknown to some. This is why we've made it our mission to raise awareness of hypnotherapy, de-bunk common myths and connect people with professional support. Connecting you with UK-based hypnotherapists, eye-opening articles and inspiring events, we want you to know your options and which step to take next. 

Whether you're ready to work with a hypnotherapist, want to learn more about hypnosis or are simply interested in supporting your well-being, it's our aim to be the hand to guide you on your way. 

Our story

Hypnotherapy Directory is part of a family of brands, grounded in family values. In 2005 two sisters, Aimi and Emma, launched Counselling Directory, a website dedicated to promoting the benefits of talk therapy. Having both experienced mental health issues at school and university, they knew how it felt to be overwhelmed and lacking guidance. They wanted to use their own experiences to help others find support from counsellors and psychotherapists.

This formula of providing information about mental health and in-depth counsellor profiles proved successful, giving our visitors the tools they need to find the right support for them.

Co-founder Aimi shares her journey on Fearne Cotton's Happy Place Podcast.

About Happiful

Following this success, our other directories were born - all with the same mission to help people access support to improve their well-being. From counselling and complementary therapies to coaching, nutrition support and hypnotherapy, our directories cover all aspects of health and wellness. 

These websites form the Happiful family, a network of over 21,000 professionals. And as of 2020, over 1.5 million people have found support through our resources.

On 20th March 2017 (International Day of Happiness) we launched a new venture - Happiful Magazine. With a mission is to create a healthier, happier, more sustainable society, each issue contains informative, inspiring and topical stories centred around health and well-being.

In 2019, we launched our podcast, I am. I have, a space for mental health and wellness advocates to come together to discuss the passions that shape their world and thoughts on their own mental health journey. 

Bringing our family under one roof, the Happiful App enables users to easily connect with professionals, find support groups, read articles from all our brands and access current and past issues of the magazine.

In 2019 we were proud to become a certified B Corp (Better Corporations). Joining a growing group of companies who are pursuing purpose as well as profit, Happiful has met rigorous social and environmental standards which represent our commitment to making the world a better place.
