At Psychology Direct we are all about people.
Ever since the company started over 10 years ago we’ve always been about ensuring people receive the best representation, whether that be a defendant in court, a client with life-changing injuries following an accident or a young person with special needs in a school. We’re also about championing the profession of psychology and valuing the individuals working within it.
It was these principles that sparked the idea behind Psychology Direct when it was founded in 2008 by Aaron and Louise Banham. The concept brought together Louise’s skills and experience as a Clinical Psychologist with Aaron’s accomplished track record in managing a wide variety of successful businesses. Their perfect partnership has made a considerable impact on the provision of, and access to Psychologists for organisations needing specialist assessments, reports and treatment quickly and cost effectively.
In launching Psychology Direct, Louise and Aaron saw a way to deliver vital Mental Health services when and where they were needed, with professionalism, efficiency, support and humanity at the heart of the process. By making quality and service the key priorities and developing strong relationships, Psychology Direct grew very quickly, largely through repeat business and word of mouth referrals. Clients were saving time and money, and experiencing a rapid, professional and supportive service.
Dedicated to serving and supplying professionals
As the business grew, so did the community of Psychologists wanting to register with Psychology Direct. Now over 1,000 psychologists strong, Psychology Direct has earnt respect as a trusted leader in the field, supplying dedicated professionals across a broad range of cases, nationwide.
The Psychology Direct team continues to grow too, with more skilled Client Managers liaising with clients and Psychologists, matching skills, managing administration and offering a highly personal service as well as professional support and advice.
Our focus for the future is to do even more for people, through remaining absolutely committed to our values. To build a stimulating, supportive and productive community of Psychologists where our Associates can learn from each other. And to continue to harness our dedication to this sector, driving up standards and making a difference.
