Therapy when and where access is most needed

For New Service-users

Do you think you may be suffering from one of the following:

  • Agoraphobia?
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)?
  • Generalised anxiety disorder (GAD)?
  • Anger management problems?
  • Or do you need help preventing a relapse after you have successfully overcome an addiction to smoking or gambling or alcohol?
Then a simple course of Telephone Psychological Therapy could help.

What is Telephone Psychological Therapy?
Telephone Psychological Therapy - TPT - is a new way of giving you graded self-help in an easy and friendly course of pre-recorded therapy sessions using an interactive phone programme. TPT is designed and written by a Consultant Clinical Psychologist. It uses the techniques of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy - CBT - which are used successfully throughout the NHS. With question and answer sessions and helpful quizzes, you can make the course personal to your choices and needs.

Should I be ashamed if I need help with a mental health problem?
Absolutely not. It’s normal to have problems from time to time. Around one quarter of all people have a mental illness of some kind so you are not alone.
