Supported self help - free mental health supportWhat is supported self help?

Supported self-help is a free, six-week guided programme, where we give you the materials to understand and manage your feelings. We also call you regularly to give you support. 

You don't need a GP referral to sign up for supported self-help. 

This service is a one-to-one guided self-help program rather than a counseling service, although our practitioners use counseling-based skills in their support. These includes elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) tools and other forms of assistance.

How can this service support me? 

We work with you to determine the most suitable supported self-help program for your needs, and together we establish a support plan. This plan covers areas such as:

  • Anxiety and panic attacks 
  • Coping with grief and loss 
  • Loneliness and feeling lonely 
  • Low self esteem 
  • Low mood and depression 
  • Managing anger 
  • Managing stress 
  • Understanding menopause

  • We don't care how 'serious' your problem is – It is for you if you feel your emotions are getting the best of you 

  • You don't need to have a diagnosed mental health problem to access this service.
