Stress-free WordPress is a small, friendly WordPress consultancy based in London. If you have a WordPress website, we can help you keep it online, keep it safe and keep it up-to-date.
Fast, friendly and plain-speaking, we offer four very simple services:
This is our only off-the-shelf offering and it exists to keep your website safe and secure, your WordPress plugins and core (software) updated, and thanks to our weekly backups and unlimited site recoveries, in the event that your site gets hacked or mysteriously ”breaks”, this plan will ensure that you’re back online in a jiffy.
- Initial site review, malware check and site lockdown (security)
- Weekly (or more regular if agreed) site backups, stored off site
- Weekly plugin updates (when we’ve ensure that the updates are safe)
- WordPress core updates (as released)
- Site uptime monitoring (so that we know if there is a problem and can sort it)
- Unlimited site recoveries from most recent backup (so that you pay nothing if your site goes down and we need to bring it back to life)
If you can’t afford for your website to be hacked, or if you don’t have the time, energy and technical know-how to keep it safe and secure, our Care+PROTECT plan is just what you need.
What are the costs?
- Pay annually: £280
- Pay monthly: £25 per month
Need monthly support and updates too?

NEW: Care+PROTECT with updates:
Need care and protection AS WELL AS minor site tweaks and tunes, blog updates and text adjustments on a monthly basis and don’t want to rack up crazy hourly costs? Then our new Care+PROTECT with updates option might be perfect for you.
You’ll get everything in the Care+PROTECT plan PLUS 15 minutes * of our time each month for anything WordPress related – posting a new blog, adding new plugins, general support, training, you-name it.
This adds up to 3 hours of support of the year, at a fraction of the cost of our hourly rates.
The cost (annual only): £365
That means that for the staggering investment of £1 per day, you have care and protection for your website as well as a team to help you with minor updates and support on a monthly basis – total peace of mind!
* Time not used in a given month doesn’t carry over, so if you fail to use your 15 minutes in one month, you lose it.
“Having worked with Stress-free WP for the last 6+ years I can categorically say that they are the most talented team I’ve met. They have razor sharp minds and can turn an initial seed of an idea into a brilliant design, be it a logo, a SOHO website or a fully featured content driven Corporate website. They have many, many loyal customers and you can’t achieve this without delivering high quality work time after time.”
— Daryl Seyforth, The PC Help Company (Former Global Technical Services Director for Bill Gates’ Corbis Corporation)
Ever find yourself stuck with your WordPress site? You sit in front of your screen and think “I wonder how I can do X…”. Perhaps you spend some time on a search engine, with no luck, or perhaps you simply don’t have the time or energy to fiddle around with your website whilst your business is growing and changing.
We offer on-demand support for WordPress website owners in plain English. We do just about everything, but to give you an idea, some of the things we can help with include:
- General WordPress advice and consulting
- Security, updates and backups
- Adding new blog posts and content
- Editing existing content
- Suggesting, installing and configuring plugins
- Search engine optimisation (SEO)
- Problem-solving – fixing things when they mysteriously go wrong!
- Site recoveries
- Social media intergration
- Changes to your design – colours, layouts, fonts etc.
- Website themes
- Custom WordPress website design
- WordPress development
- Website refreshes
- Moving your website to a new host
And if you get stuck with things that are related to your site but that aren’t necessarily about WordPress specifically – like hosting, email, domains and all the “stuff” that forms part of being a website owner – we can offer good advice and common sense, too.
We offer an hourly rate for ad-hoc requests, affordable “packs of hours” for ongoing support, and fixed pricing for clearly defined projects.

“Websites are like cars – things go wrong from time to time and they need regular servicing. The Stress-free WP team are my website “mechanics”. When something goes wrong, I ring them up and they fix the problem or tell me what I did wrong and how to fix it myself. I also subscribe to their Stress-free WP service, which gives me HUGE peace of mind and has saved my bacon on more than on occasion. If you have a WordPress site, you need Stress-free WP to keep it healthy!”
— Charlene Morris, Momentum Sales Training
If you have a WordPress website and you want to do more yourself, but you don’t know how, our WordPress training might be helpful. After all, why have a content management tool like WordPress that allows you to update and edit your content and tweak your site yourself, if you don’t know how to do it?!
We offer training via telephone (or Skype), using TeamViewer so that we can show you how to do things “on your own screen”. Training can take as little as 15 minutes and as long as several hours, and can include documentation or not, depending on what works for you.
We charge hourly for short, on-demand training calls, or we can provide you with a fixed-price proposal for several hours of training that may include telephone support, TeamViewer support and follow-up emails with mini-tutorials to help you remember what you need to do and when.

“Words fail me when it comes to talking about Stress-free WP and their team, which is a little unusual because I’m a copywriter! But I’ve worked with an awful lot of graphic design and website companies over the years and can honestly say Stress-free WP stands head and shoulders above the others in so many ways. I struck gold when I found them. Their ideas, input and delivery have been invaluable to my own business and I never have any qualms at all in referring clients on to them because I know the level of customer service as well as the actual product never falters. This is not something you can say about a lot of companies, because it is consistency that counts.”
— Marilyn Messik, Create Communication
We blend business know-how, a creative eye and technical expertise with nearly 11 years of experience of working with WordPress. We listen carefully to our clients and make sensible suggestions based on their objectives, their audience, and their budget.
Altogether, this makes us a good partner if you need to design, develop or refresh your website using WordPress.
There are a number of ways that we can help:
This is always free. We’ll arrange a time to speak, go through what you need and provide you with a follow-up email, outlining ideas that will help you move forward.
WordPress theme suggestions
If you’re on a budget, we can suggest suitable processional WordPress themes (a little like templates) for you to consider based on your needs.
WordPress theme customisation
If you’ve opted for a professional WordPress theme / template, we can help you customise the theme to make it as original as possible for you and your business.
Custom theme design
If you have a specific need and want to have a uniquely designed site based on your needs, we can design a custom look-and-feel for you and hand-code your design into suitable WordPress files to control the look-and-feel of your site.
WordPress website development
We’ll install and configure WordPress, add suitable plugins to ensure that you have the functionality you need, customise the look and feel if needed, add you pages and content, suggest images, sort out SEO and much more. What we do here depends on what you need.
WordPress website refresh
If you have an existing site and you simply want to refresh the look-and-feel, we can do that too, keeping your site structure and content and simply updating the design and responsive features.
The bottom line?
If you need help with your WordPress website, we can help. What we actually do to help depends on what you need.

We’re a small team of WordPress specialists based in London and across the UK. Since 2006, we’ve helped a wide range of businesses plan, design, develop, deploy and support their websites. In 2014, we decided to join forces to work exclusively on design, developing, supporting and maintaining WordPress websites, and Stress-free WP was born.
Not only do we believe that WordPress is one of the best content management tools out there from a development point of view, but we find that it allows the best balance between beautiful design, strong functionality and ease-of-use for website owners.
We work with individuals and entrepreneurs, growing businesses and social enterprises, helping them with a range of services including building custom themes from scratch, tailoring existing themes to make them “pop”, developing websites, working with plugins, and supporting and securing existing sites.

“Right from the start, Jen was extremely accessible, helpful and professional. Unlike other suppliers I have worked with, Jen and her team really took the time to understand the project and go above and beyond to make our concepts and ideas into reality. She was very personable and pleasant to deal with and we really felt like she was on the same page all of the time. No request was too big and we always felt that communication was great from start to finish. She also made sure that after our website had gone live that we had the right tools and knowledge to manage things ourselves and took the time to give us Skype tutorials to ensure this. I would definitely recommend Stress-free WP and their work very highly to anyone looking for a professional, creative website and branding.”

Social media and co.
We spend most of our time supporting and securing WordPress websites, or training folks to use their sites more effectively
The result is – shock, horror! – that we’re not avid social media users.
You can , however, follow us on Twitter short WordPress updates, security alerts and news.
