Online therapy, with a humanitarian twist.

The UK’s first 1-for-1 online therapy service. Every session you pay for allows us to provide one free therapy session to someone living in a low-income country who can’t afford to pay for therapy.

Your first session is free

We know therapy can be a financial commitment, that’s why we want you to meet your therapist first so that you can start therapy confidently, before you have to pay anything.

Therapist matching tools

The relationship you have with your therapist is an essential part of therapy. To help you find a therapist you connect with, we’ve created matching tools you can use to help you find the best therapist for you.

Easy, straightforward booking

The booking process shouldn’t be stressful. Our automated booking system lets you book, reschedule and cancel your sessions seamlessly, and sends you automatic reminders for your upcoming sessions.

Therapy that pays it forward

Every session you pay for = one free session to someone living in a low-income country who can't afford therapy

A huge lack of local resources and a number of financial barriers prevent people in low-income countries in the Middle East and North Africa from receiving mental health care. To combat this inequity, we deliver free therapy sessions to people living in these regions who cannot afford to pay for therapy.

We love making our clients happy

If you're happy, we're happy

We know that therapy isn’t always so easy, and that often, it requires a lot of hard work – we’ve actually been through it ourselves! So we work hard to ensure that we provide you with the best level of service we can. We want to make the process as seamless and easy as possible for you, so that you can just focus on healing.

I wish I knew them earlier. I had depression and anxiety, couldn’t find a reason to keep doing daily tasks. I always wanted to see a specialist but this is difficult in Iraq. When I found out about Gaia, I didn’t hesitate to enrol, their service is very helpful. A SAFE PLACE to express your feelings…I want to thank them a lot for help provided for areas that need it more than anywhere else.

I wish I had known them since childhood. Like all Iraqis, I have suffered from many psychological problems since my teenage years… I was hoping to get help from a competent authority. Shadia [my therapist] has a great personality. She helped me arrange my thoughts and control my passion in logical ways. She is very smart, aware, kind and polite.
