Pilotfish is the first crowdsourced database of mental health information for remote workers, by remote workers. All of our information is validated by professional psychotherapists.


Right now, we're crowdsourcing that information from you, the nomads, and validating it with professional psychotherapists.

David Downes

In David’s early career he served in the Royal Navy – submarines (intelligence/communications).  Upon leaving he founded a new innovative IT start-up, leading to the employment of 115 colleagues located in 6 locations before its eventual sale in the late 90’s. After 3 major career changes, David finally retrained as a Psychotherapist, which in 2017 would lead him to Joe.

"I’ve never experienced a therapist like David, with him I had more of a feeling that I was in control of my own recovery. It felt far more positive and as if I was actually achieving something."
