Primary Psychological & Wellbeing Services
One in four people will experience some kind of mental health difficulty during their lifetime. We don’t expect our physical health to be perfect all the time and the same applies to our mental health.
The Psychological and Wellbeing Service offers a range of confidential and accessible services, which may be able to help those who are experiencing mental difficulties.
Psychological wellbeing practitioners
We offer short term ‘talking therapy’ and guided self-help for people experiencing mild to moderate mental health problems. We commonly work with people experiencing symptoms of anxiety and depression.
- help individuals to understand their feelings
- give information and support if individuals have been prescribed medication
- devise a support programme in collaboration with the client
- introduce individuals to support groups
Work with individuals who are experiencing problems with cultural differences, perhaps due to religion or race, or who may feel cut off from mainstream society or who have complex problems. Our therapists will provide a safe and comfortable environment for individuals to discuss what is troubling them.
