How We Can Help

About This Service

Our Talking Therapies and Wellbeing Service is an IAPT-compliant, stepped care model including primary care counselling services, operating from our central Wellbeing Hub in Westminster.

IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) is a countrywide Department of Health initiative, aiming to bring talking therapy to people with mild to moderate depression and anxiety. The service is commissioned by your local GPs.

The service provides Psychological Therapy services for people experiencing mild to moderate Depression and Anxiety. All adults registered with a Westminster GP or residents in Westminster are eligible.

What We Offer

Individual 1:1 counselling sessions for between 6-12 weeks.
Sessions normally start 4-12 weeks after an assessment.
Sessions last for 50 minutes. We can offer both daytime and evening appointments.

We use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, with a solution based focus where goals are identified and worked towards during the length of the treatment. In a supportive, trusting environment you will be able to explore challenges and difficulties with your counsellor and work towards achieving your goals.

Who Is It For?

We are not currently funded to provide talking therapies to anyone who lives in the boroughs of Brent or Wandsworth.

We accept referrals from other health professionals: for example your midwife, health visitor or practice nurse.
