About talking therapies

What is talking therapy?

Talking therapies is the collective name for psychological treatments which are used to treat common mental health problems, such as depression and anxiety. 

It includes treatments such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Counselling, and Guided self-help. 

If you feel like you are worrying all the time, if you have panic attacks, obsessive thoughts or behaviours, or if you often feel hopeless and low, then talking therapies might be the right type of intervention to help you.
