What we need from you

We are only going to be able to do good work if we succeed. So of course we want you to be empathetic and care about people deeply However unless we are a well run organisation who focus on results then we will have little to no impact on the huge amount of problems in the mental health sector. So we need you to be talented, ambitious, results focused and purpose driven!

Meet the team

James Doyle

Founder & CEO

James has built teams, divisions, and businesses in recruitment over the last 16 years. Always operating in niche sectors and having an international focus. He's now a CEO, Investor, and Board Advisor for some of the most exciting businesses across the UK, alongside his commitment to driving Take A Seat People forward.

Chris Hampson


As one of the founders of Take a Seat, good mental health is something Chris is passionate about. After spending years in the corporate world he wanted the chance to do something that could make a real difference. Having experienced the benefits of therapy, he wished he hadn’t waited so long to do it and wanted to ‘bring the joy’ to everyone else. He is now on a mission to ensure therapy is not only accessible but that therapists are fully supported on their journey. When he isn’t trying to ‘change the therapy world’ he can be found walking his two Border Terriers, watching Liverpool FC or binging a Netflix boxset.

All our Integrative therapists work to the highest ethical standards and are members of a relevant governing body. Able to support clients in more open-ended therapy by utilising a range of modalities to suit the clients’ needs.
