Online therapy provider Healingclouds has taken home the award for Best Mental Healthcare Platform 2020 in the SME UK Enterprise Awards.
The awards celebrate a multitude of exciting and vibrant businesses and industries in small and medium enterprises.
This year the team at web-based therapy platform Healingclouds have been recognised for their work in the mental health space.
Breaking down barriers people face when seeking help and support is a top priority for the service, which connects users to a pool of therapists via video call, with 60 to 90-minute sessions from as little as £35.
A range of therapies are available from approved and accredited practitioners, including cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), psychological counselling, and psychotherapy.
Founder and CEO of Healingclouds, Asim Amin, said: ‘Being recognised by the SME Awards is a fantastic achievement and we are hugely proud and grateful to have won.
‘The award will help us continue to raise mental health awareness and gives us another platform to reach those who may need help.
‘It also keeps mental health in the forefront of people’s minds, which is really important, especially in the middle of a global pandemic.’
SME News is a digital quarterly publication that focuses on offering support to small and medium-sized businesses within the UK via its digital magazine, website, and social media outlets.
Their prestigious awards have been running for four consecutive years and aim to highlight the best in British small and medium enterprises and connect them to like-minded contacts.
The award winners are chosen by a panel of impartial judges who base each business on merit, looking closely on expertise, skill, and dedication as well as customer service and client satisfaction.
Healingclouds has a number of monthly subscription packages, from a basic level at £45 a month which includes one therapy session, to a more premium package including four sessions at £140 a month.
The service also offers therapist-led courses, giving users access to expert mental health knowledge and resources from £7 a month.
In a bid to remove the obstacles faced by those needing support, Asim set out to make the service, which is one of the UK’s lowest-priced therapy providers, affordable, accessible and available.
