We provide 1:1 talking therapy for people who are struggling with common mental health problems such as depression or anxiety. This can be face to face or on the telephone.
We also work closely with specialist teams to support people with chronic health problems such as diabetes and Coronary Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Research indicates that in such cases people may benefit from psychological support.
We provide several courses and groups including Mindfulness, Take Control and the STEPS course for the Jewish community.
We also provide supervision, training and consultancy services.
We carry out research into the effectiveness of mental health interventions provided in primary care. Current research projects include the Knowledge Transfer Partnership on ‘Empowered Conversations’, our communications training course for the day to day carers of people living with dementia; and the Randomised Control Trial for our Take Control course.
