The purpose of this page is to introduce you to Therapy Themes and our small team of experts. Hopefully when you learn more about us you’ll understand what makes us unique and why we’re the perfect choice to create, build and maintain your therapy website.
Therapy Themes comprises of a small team:
- The Project Manager
- The Designer
- The Programmer
Your Project Manager – Tim
I’m the owner of this website. I will be your point of contact and the person responsible for the successful planning, execution and control of your website. I will work closely with you and the other members of my team and it’s my role to ensure you get the best possible service. First though, I’d like to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about my background and why I decided to setup Therapy Themes.
I have been a professional webmaster / website developer for over 10 years. My experience in building websites dates back to the mid-to-late 1990’s when I started learning the basics of HTML and website design. To cut a long story short I’ve been involved with various different websites over the years in a variety of industries, but I’ve dedicated considerable time to the self development / complimentary therapy niche – with a particular interest in hypnotherapy. My understanding of this niche coupled with my web development skills means I have a lot to offer when it comes to Therapy Themes.
Why did I decide to setup Therapy Themes? Well, a couple of years ago I was working on a project to create a directory website and during this time I spent countless hours researching and reviewing hundreds of therapy websites. The vast majority of the websites I visited were (in my humble opinion) poorly designed and very unappealing. This isn’t a criticism of therapy professionals, it’s just that therapists have people skills are not always very web savvy. I think it’s fair to say that therapists generally don’t have the time or inclination to build great websites. They have better things to focus on, such as helping people.
Upon researching the market I discovered a small number of companies offering website design services targeting therapy professionals. I wasn’t very impressed with the quality of services being offered; ugly websites built the old-school way – and overpriced too. That’s when I knew that I could offer something far superior, which led to the creation of Therapy Themes – great designs to suit therapy professionals built on a modern (yet easy-to-use) platform at affordable rates.
My role at Therapy Themes is the project manager and I’ll be your point of contact at all times. However, I don’t work alone. Even though I know how to build and maintain websites, I don’t possess the natural flair for design. I’m also capable when it comes to programming, I’m no expert. That’s why I work closely with my talented designer and programming expert.
The Rest of the Team
One of the lessons I’ve learned over the years is that good designers frequently lack the necessary coding skills and good programmers generally make functional but unattractive websites. There are exceptions to every rule and I’m sure there are people who have both artistic talent and great programming ability, but I’ve yet to come across anyone who is capable of doing both to a high standard. Both specialties require a very different way of thinking. They also take years or training and experience and few people have the patience, inclination, or ability to master both. Why am I telling you this? Well, because at Therapy Themes we have the best of both.
Now let me introduce you to the other members of the team….
Your Designer – James
James has been part of my development team for almost 5 years now and he’s an excellent designer who possesses natural artistic talent and has the ability to think creatively. There are many people who call themselves ‘website designers’ yet lack a sense of design and aesthetics. Anyone, including me, can make a design that’s somewhere between decent and pretty good – but James has the gift and the evidence, as I’m sure you’ll agree, is demonstrated in the style and beauty of our website designs.
Your Programmer – Patrick
Patrick is an experienced and talented developer who I’ve also worked with for a few years. It’s his role to implement our designs and ensures that they make the best use of WordPress functionality. Although a programmer operates behind the scenes, their role is just as important as that of the designer. A stunning design is all well and good, but it’s easy to get fooled by pretty imagery. Bad code is not only a recipe for disaster from a usability perspective (i.e. the site won’t function properly), but search engines appreciate properly coded websites. Patrick has considerable expertise on the WordPress platform and creates robust code that works. Put simply, better code equals better results and with Patrick you’re in safe hands.
Now you know a little bit more about the team here at Therapy Themes I hope you’ll have confidence that we can deliver.
