This is the team

Roger Lovegrove

More than just a numbers guy, Roger has a proven track record in building businesses; adding financial, operational and commercial leadership to the BeenThere team.


Roger is a highly experienced chief financial officer with a proven track record in building dynamic, rapid-growth businesses in the UK. He has brought strong operational, commercial and financial expertise to the teams he’s worked with, both in the charity sector and elsewhere. He has substantial experience and knowledge of UK fund raising and his understanding of this sector has proved pivotal in his work attracting new investment to fast-growing businesses.

Roger is married with two grown up children and lives on a farm in Kent with, what seems to be, an ever-increasing assortment of horses, dogs, cats, sheep and chickens.

Andrew Peters

I feel privileged and proud to be a part of Been There. Tessa has faced body image issues for many years and has now found a way to give back what she has learnt to help others with this mentoring App.

I believe there are situations and not problems as this makes things easier to handle and overcome. Often it is about accepting a situation and becoming comfortable with it and not about solving or curing. We are not talking about a disease but something young people, especially today, try to deal with every day. Help and support is what is needed from people who have experienced similar situations because only then can you be understood.

I look forward to the journey that we are embarking on and making a positive difference to young people’s lives.

Rachael Williams

Rachael has been a psychotherapist working with young people for over 18 years. She is passionate about helping young people learn to relate more skillfully to their thoughts and feelings. She has worked in 4 large secondary schools and is currently working with the Royal Shakespeare company on their production of Romeo and Juliet, advising on the depiction of mental health issues on the stage.

She is a public speaker on mental health and runs parents talks and workshops in schools. She also works with her sister Louise running online training for the PKD (polycystic kidney disease) charity among others.

She is a passionate open water swimmer and has 3 children of her own in their mid to late 20’s. She is a firm believer that mental health should be given the same time, attention and energy as physical well-being and that children would benefit from being taught as early as possible in schools how to suffer well.
