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.
