This is very similar to when you see a personal trainer at a gym or a physiotherapist for helping after a physical injury. A set of appointments allows new techniques to be learnt. practised and improved with a help so you can use them in future.
If you have used up all your purchased appointments you can purchase more as required, whether this is just one more or several more. And remember you don’t ned to use them straight away – they will last up to one year from date of purchase.

At the moment we can only provide appointments for those 18 years old and above.

It is usually more beneficial to see the same therapist each time and this is the “default mode” when making the next appointment. But there is the option to change.
When you see a Mynurva therapist, no notes of what has been discussed are kept on Mynurva systems, and no records are forwarded to your GP or employer.
Mynurva was setup so workers and employees could seek help without their boss or colleagues knowing, and without any record being added to their medical records. Confidentiality is therefore important.
Currently all our therapists are based in the UK.
We have testimonials from happy clients, so yes it does!
Many of those who booked one trial appointment have subsequently purchased a further set of 6 appointments.
So far we have found that lunchtimes, early and late evening are the most popular times. We introduced appointment times on the half hour to cater better for lunch time breaks and evenings straight after work.
