We are currently experiencing issues with our phone lines. We apologise for the inconvenience, and we’re working to resolve this as quickly as possible. To contact us in the meantime, please use the email addresses below.

In light of the current situation, we are making changes to the way we deliver services at the moment. However, please note that all our Psychological Wellbeing services are still open and accepting referrals. One-to-one appointments that would normally be delivered face-to-face will now take place over the phone or through video call. There is no need to call us to confirm – your regular point of contact will call you at the time your appointment was scheduled.

As we are no longer able to hold groups inside, we are running online anxiety and depression groups on Zoom. Further information and bookings can be accessed at: https://www.selfhelpservices.org.uk/new-online-anxiety-and-depression-support-groups/

We have also created an online Peer Support group on Facebook, which can be accessed at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/selfhelppeersupport.
