    There are different forms of talking therapies that might help? Here is some information from the NHS

    There are lots of different types of talking therapy, but they all involve working with a trained therapist.

    This may be one-to-one, in a group, over the phone, with your family, or with your partner.

    The therapist helps you find answers to the problems you're having.

    For some problems and conditions, one type of talking therapy may be better than another.

    Different talking therapies also suit different people.

    Talking therapies on the NHS

    You can get talking therapies like counselling for depression and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) on the NHS.

    You don't need a referral from your GP.

    You can refer yourself directly to a psychological therapies service.

    If you prefer, see your GP and they can refer you and share relevant information about you.

    Psychological therapies services are also known as Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) services.
