Frequently asked questions about Franchise Opportunity

Where is the Supporting Minds franchise available?

We launched our franchise opportunity in 2020 with our focus to build a national franchise network for Supporting Minds and make therapies accessible to everyone.

At present, we're particularly looking for franchisees in:

  • Nottingham
  • Derby
  • Leicester
  • Leeds

We've selected these as priority areas for their close distance to Lincolnshire where our head office is based, allowing us to provide close-knit support as your business becomes established.

If you're not based in the above locations, we'd still love to hear from you!


Do I need a background in Counselling?

By becoming a franchisee, you'll provide direct delivery of therapy services, training and workshops within your franchise area.

With that in mind, it's essential that a qualified counsellor or psychotherapist is involved with the franchise.

That could be you, or a business partner with the relevant qualifications to support you on your journey. With this you will need to adhere to the professional standards required.


What kind of support will I receive?

We want nothing more than your success and to ensure that happens we offer ongoing support for all aspects of your business.

We will regularly visit you to manage the quality elements of your training qualifications, this ensures that we can support you with anything from managing students to assessing learners work and therefore ensuring quality standards across the board.

We are at the end of the phone for any queries big or small. We’ve built Supporting Minds from the ground up and know the business inside out, it really is Jenine's first baby! 

"In the early days I often felt that my business had a mind of its own and I wondered if I had in fact created a monster rather than a thing of beauty.  My team and I will be there to reassure you, remind you why you’ve chosen to support so many people and offer compassion when it’s needed most. There is no denying that things will get tough, you will want to give in and just as you feel like you can’t take any more the clouds will dissipate. We will be there every step of the way."

Jenine Butroid, CEO
