After your needs are assessed you will be offered the most appropriate care with a trained professional, which may include talking therapy to help you manage your current mental health problem including
- Stress and anxiety
- Sleep problems
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Depression including pre and post-natal

- Living with a long term condition such as diabetes, heart disease, chronic pain or IBS.

Treatment sessions may be by phone, online, in groups or face-to-face. Treatment options are based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) which is a structured therapy where you will set goals you want to reach and work on changes you can make to patterns of thoughts and behaviours to help you attain your goal.
