True North Therapy Practice
True North Psychology (TNP) was founded by Dr. Sara Tookey in 2020 with the aim of providing accessible, inclusive, and evidence-based therapy. After working for more than 12 years in the NHS and private practice, Sara recognized the inequitable nature of private practice services and the growing demand for mental health services in the NHS. TNP operates under a cooperative business model with a focus on providing specialist psychological care to individuals who live in rural or disadvantaged communities where access to specialist services is limited.
The True North Psychology platform was developed to meet the needs of a culturally diverse population from around the globe, providing easily accessible and inclusive services upheld to the highest international standards. We provide compassionate, confidential and non-judgmental psychological therapy, drawing upon the latest research and evidence-based therapy methods to guide our clients and support them to live the lives they want to live.

What Clients are Saying About Us
"I’ve been able to get to a level of depth of understanding of myself that I’ve not been able to with any of my previous therapy, and that’s all due to the skilled and compassionate approach, patience and dedication of my psychologist. She’s helped me to understand my difficulties and explore my strengths and on many occasions has helped me to turn my difficulties into strengths. I’m forever grateful."
