Talking Therapies

Are you suffering from anxiety or depression?

Perhaps you’re feeling stressed and struggling to control your worry? Do you experience feelings of panic or obsess about certain thoughts?

You’re not alone. Help is out there. Last year more than 30,000 people in Lancashire and South Cumbria benefitted from NHS Talking Therapies – formerly known as IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies).

NHS Talking Therapies involve free groups and courses, as well as one to one therapy to help you understand what you’re going through and build your confidence.

You can refer yourself – which means you don’t have to see your GP first. Find out more information or refer yourself today by visiting: choose as appropriate www.lscft.nhs.uk/talkingtherapies or www.lancashirewomen.org/mental-health-east-lancashire or www.lancashireandsouthcumbria.icb.nhs.uk/talkingtherapies

Information regarding both one to one, and group talking therapies can be found inside the leaflets below.
