Our service can help people who are experiencing common mental health difficulties such as:
- Anxiety and panic
- Low mood
- Adjustment and loss
1 in 4 people will experience some kind of mental health problem in the course of a year and we can help you with your recovery.
We offer treatments such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, counselling and self-help courses which can help you to understand and overcome your problems.
The therapies we provide are mainly for common mental health problems. It might be that having spoken to you, your needs may be more appropriately met by another service. We will discuss this with you and agree the next steps. Our concern is that you get the best help possible, which may mean directing you to another service.
