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.
Making an Appointment
Take the first step
Discuss your difficulties with your GP and if you agree that you might benefit from some type of psychological help, the Wellbeing team will let you know how our services can support you.
What do you need to do now?
Contact the Wellbeing team by telephone on 01283 536645
Our self referral line is open Monday to Friday, 9am - 4.30pm.
Please leave a voicemail message detailing your full name, telephone number, date of birth, postcode and a convenient time for us to call you back.
Please be aware that we may not return your call immediately but will aim to contact you within five working days. If you have not heard from us after five working days please leave a new message. If you require an appointment outside of these times please state this in your message.
Alternatively, you can email BUWellbeing@mpft.nhs.uk
What will happen next?
A member of the team will take some details from you and together you will agree the next steps. This may be booking an assessment with a therapist or assisting you to access the most helpful service to meet your needs.
Even if you are unsure about contacting us, please call to discuss the options. It is your decision at every step whether to proceed or not.
What if we can’t help?
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, or making a referral on your behalf.

Tip #3: write it down 🖊 Sometimes we can’t see the wood from the trees when we’re worried, anxious or down. Writing down our thoughts can help us to recognise how our thinking is making us feel.. and what we can perhaps change #MHAW19 #Burton #Uttoxeter #IAPT
