We're here to help

Our aim is to make sure you get the help you need. Your GP will help you decide if a referral to the DHC IAPT service would best suit your needs. The leaflets below provide an overview of the service and the different types of treatment that can be tailored specifically for you.

How can we help you?

There are many things that you can do to help with problems like feeling low or anxious, finding it difficult at work, having problems sleeping or generally not feeling yourself.

We offer help - from one to one therapy in person or over the phone, to group sessions and lessons. You will get help from a qualified specialist including Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners and Cognitive Behavioural Therapists who can help you work through a range of problems. Please see the IAPT criteria before completing a referral, to ensure IAPT is the most appropriate source of support for your needs.
