Most people – around one in four – will experience some form of mental health problem during their lifetime. After all, we don’t expect our physical health to be perfect all the time, and the same applies to our mental health too. These problems can’t always be overcome by a single visit to your GP or by medication alone – and that’s when psychological wellbeing can help. We’re here to offer you the time and care to help you deal with your problems and improve your situation.
Our trained and qualified staff, in discussion with you, will decide which treatment will work best for you and your problems. You’ll find we’re sympathetic, understanding, positive and practical. We work with all kinds of people from all walks of life and we have the experience to help you.
The delivery of CBT (how you think ‘cognitive’ and what you do ‘behaviour’ ) via the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) programme supports the frontline NHS in implementing National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines for people suffering from many different types of problem including: anxiety, depression, panic, phobias (including agoraphobia and social phobia), stress, trauma (PTSD) and obsessive compulsive disorder
As with so many health services, demand outstrips supply so every available psychological wellbeing treatment session is of value. Your non-attendance means that other people are deprived of the opportunity to receive treatment and NHS money is being wasted.
If you are unable to attend a session you need to inform your practitioner as soon as possible. If you have a planned absence, discuss it with your practitioner and alternative dates and times will be offered.
Please note that repeated cancellations and failure to attend will lead to a discharge from the service.
