1. What does your business do?
Bristol Psychological Services provides psychological assessment and therapy in Bristol and the surrounding area via a network of Clinical Psychologists and experienced therapists. I set up the business to enable clients to have one central point for accessing independent, professional, evidence-based psychological therapy and also to enable newly established therapists to have a platform to advertise their services on.
2. Why did you invest in Clear Books?
I invested in Clear Books because the software had been very beneficial in enabling my company to grow. I like the approach of crowd funding, giving customers ownership of the company and trusting in it’s members, rather than outsourcing to more disconnected funding sources.
3. Clear Books is asking its customers to co-own the business. What do you think?
I like the approach, it makes you feel more connected to the company and gives you a sense of being part of it’s developments.
4. What do you like about Clear Books?
It was very important to me to use a British based company. I support British companies and small businesses in general and I find a UK base enables better customer service. In addition, the secure storage of information was also very important for the services.
I also really like the interface; it’s clear and actually quite enjoyable doing my accounts now which says something as I don’t enjoy anything to do with numbers!
