'Why now?' - Vitus Wellbeing Launch

It’s a question therapists ask all the time.

‘Why now?’

What happened to make you seek support today – rather than a month ago, a year ago, or even before? So, it’s only fair we answer it ourselves.

‘Why launch Vitus Wellbeing now?’


You’ve been struggling for a while now.

You have good days and bad days, but the good ones come less often. You find yourself struggling to meet deadlines, cancelling plans, getting up later and later, and rarely leaving the house. Working from home has helped you hide away; you’ve perhaps dismissed your low moods as nothing more than the much discussed, ‘lockdown fatigue’.

After some months and a growing familiarity with being lonely, you decide it’s time to change your story; to speak to a professional who might help you find increasing light in your otherwise dark monotony. You read pages and pages of online profiles of therapists in your area and you pluck up the courage to email a couple – sending a nervous ‘hello’ with an attempt to summarise months or years of unhappiness into one polite, succinct email.

You breathe a sigh of relief and sleep better that night. You’ve already changed your story!

You chose not to suffer silently, pretending everything’s okay – you saw your own words on the screen admitting you’re in pain…

And you asked for help.

‘I’m afraid I’m fully booked,’ you read. ‘Perhaps I could add you to my waiting list?


It takes a great deal of courage to admit you’re not okay and it takes even more to take action. With the UK’s mental health in crisis and record numbers of adults and children seeking help, many vulnerable adults and children are being turned away from therapy, or are being kept waiting.

We’re delighted to launch Vitus Wellbeing at a time we can make a real difference to mental health and wellbeing, both throughout the UK and overseas.

Our incredible team boasts a host of highly qualified experts – all of whom have responded magnificently to this mental health crisis.

With a focus on accessibility, we offer therapy sessions via video consultation or face-to-face in our Fulham therapy rooms.

We have appointments available during weekdays, evenings, or even weekends and we don’t charge more for sessions beyond office hours.

We offer weekly psychotherapy or counselling, free from judgement, where you can explore your challenges openly and be met with the compassion and support you need to find your unique way forward.

Our specialists are trained in working with young people, adolescents, adults, couples and families and are all warm, friendly and approachable.

If you’re struggling, but ready to engage with therapy, do contact us.

We’re ready to help.
