#1) Brainstorm your name ideas
Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “talk”, “help”, and “change”. You can see that while these words are related to therapy, they also suggest that their therapy services are action oriented. Your goal here is to create a list of words or names that come to mind when thinking about your business.
If you’re stuck on words to use, try our business name generator.
Here are my name ideas after brainstorming:
#2) Shortlist your ideas
Once you’ve developed a list of possible names, do an analysis of your ideas. Remove any names that could be hard to remember, spell or speak aloud. Keep names that are brandable, sound great, are memorable and communicate your brand values, product or service to your target audience.
Here’s a quick checklist you can run your ideas through to help shorten your list of names:
- Is the name simple and easy to remember?
- Is the name easy to read and say aloud?
- Is the name different from competitors?
- Does the name convey a relevant meaning?
- Does the name avoid overused words or cliches?

#3) Get some feedback
You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great therapy business names and you can start to ask potential customers or people working in the industry for feedback (your target audience). Avoid feedback from family and friends, as they are more likely to praise all your ideas and they aren’t your customer.
Be sure to ask questions like:
- What comes to mind when you first hear the name?
- How would you spell it?
With your customer feedback you can now ask yourself, is the name still relevant? and does it represent your business how you intended?
My customer feedback:
This name conveys hope, like a person can learn skills to help themselves.
This name conveys both a deep and lighthearted vibe.
This name conveys the idea that we also need to be kind to ourselves.
This name conveys the relief in finding therapy.
#4) Check if it’s available
At this point, it’s good to have at least three great therapy business names on your list, in case any of your names are already taken. You can do a quick Business Name Search online to find out if your name is available within your country/state. Also be sure to search if the name is also available for Trademark and Domain name Registration.

Competitor Name Analysis
To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful therapy businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.
Healing Conversations is another therapy practice name that relies on the positive connotations of the word “healing.” The use of “conversations” is very clever because the word sounds much more casual and non-threatening than a therapy session.
My Quiet Place Counseling appeals to the core value of its patients, providing a safe space for counseling. This is a communicative and appealing name, that represents the business as trustworthy, safe and personal.
Healing Elaine conveys itself as a personal, one on one business. Using the owners name and the word ‘healing’, makes the business name straightforward and appeals to customers by allowing them to expect a much more personal level of service and counseling.
1. Do a competitor analysis
Doing a competitor analysis as your first step will save you a lot of time in the future. Knowing what names to avoid and understanding why and how your competitor’s business name works for them will help you in forming your own business names. When analyzing competitors think about:
- What business or product values are they conveying in their business name? How does that work for them?
- Is there a trend in how these businesses are naming themselves? It’s best to avoid sounding like “just another one of those businesses”.
- Who does it best? Why does it work and how can I produce a better name?
2. Focus on naming your business not describing it.
A typical pitfall most businesses run into is describing their business name too literally, using overused therapy terms like Doctor, Therapist, and Counsellor. A more effective business name should convey to customers your businesses and product values at a deeper level. Try name your business in a way that has a story behind it.
Let’s take for example a real online therapy business named “ReGain”.
Literally, this name conveys that you can reclaim something. At a deeper level, the name is empowering. You can get something back that you have lost.
3. How to make a more memorable name
Creating a memorable business name is the first step in getting into a customer’s mind and it’s a task that’s easier said than done. Your business name should aim to stop a customer in their tracks and so they give extra thought to your service among your wave of competitors. Some tips to create a memorable name would be:
- Use rhythmic pronunciation or alliteration (Helping Hearts, Feeling & Healing)
- Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (The Compassionate Couch – out of context, a couch is just something to sit on)
- Keep it short and simple.
4. Try purchasing a brandable business name
Brandable business names are names that are non-sensical but are read and pronounced well. They often use letter patterns of Vowel/Consonant/Vowel as these word structures are typically short, catchy and easy to say and remember. For example, some brandable therapy business names could be:
- Nuvane Therapy Solutions
- Alomos Counselling
- Nurilo Centre

5. Avoid combining words just to create a unique name.
Another mistake business owners typically make is creating bad word combinations when they find out that their business name idea is already taken. For example, John names his business The Talk Doctor and finds out it’s taken. Because he’s already decided this is what he’ll name his business he tries to opt for similar sounding names like The Talktor, DocTalk or TalkDoc.
You can see how these ideas are a step backward as they are not catchy, easily pronounceable or memorable. In these situations, we suggest starting from scratch and trying the tips we mentioned previously.
Here are the top trending words used in Therapy company names.
Words Therapy often describes
You can use these words to create therapy business names like ‘Guide2Wellness Therapy’ and ‘Psy Health Therapy’.
