I'm excited to share a project I've been working on. It's called Bobbe, and it's all about making the process of finding a therapist simpler and more welcoming.

It all started when a few friends mentioned their struggles with finding a therapist. After some research I realised that existing directories, while comprehensive, can be overwhelming and complex, especially when you're not feeling great.

From personal experience, the right therapist can change your life. I want other people to have that experience.

So, with some time on my hands from being in-between jobs, I decided to embark on creating a simple, friendly, and jargon-free directory where anyone can find their perfect therapist.

What's next 🔮

Over the next month, I'll be focusing on building out the back-end, aiming to launch a working MVP by the end of this month. I'll be sharing my progress, wins, and challenges.

If you're curious to see how Bobbe is shaping up, feel free to have a look at the early work-in-progress front-end here!

What do you think? Would you find Bobbe useful, or do you think it's a terrible idea? How can I make it better? I'm all ears and would really appreciate your feedback!

The joys of building from scratch

You might be wondering why I didn't just take the easy route and use a pre-built template. Building Bobbe from scratch has been a great learning opportunity. It has allowed me to give the platform its own unique personality while gaining invaluable experience in UX/UI and front-end development.

Why is it called Bobbe?

My dog Bobby has been a great companion over the last few years and got me through some tough times, so Bobbe is named after Bobby. My hope is that Bobbe can be a similar companion to those seeking a therapist.
