Therapeutic support for the film industry
Film In Mind advocates for better mental health in the film industry, providing consultation and therapy for the filmmaking community.
We bring a unique empathy to our therapeutic work, blending years of experience working in independent documentary with a tailored psychotherapeutic approach.
“This has been needed for so long, a therapist who knows the industry inside out and understands the challenges of working creatively. I feel like I have counselling, coaching and mentoring in one session.”
How can we help you?
We work with individual filmmakers, film teams & organisations to explore and challenge our vulnerabilities; our concerns around mental health and wellbeing for practitioners and film contributors and unhealthy working patterns that may be preventing us or our projects from reaching their full potential. We work in a number of ways, remaining open-minded and flexible to your needs.
Available at any stage of production, this guides you through an assessment of emotional risk to you or your contributors, safeguarding issues and other mental health related concerns…
This is an opportunity to check in regularly with someone to talk about all aspects of your career, working through issues without taking them back into production….
