If you are struggling to cope with anxiety, depression, panic or sleep-related problems, you can access quick and confidential support through our range of online, interactive eTherapy programmes.

eTherapy is based on the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), the first line of treatment for the above conditions. Our programmes can take between six to eight weeks to complete.

eTherapy services can be accessed from a number of community settings in Manchester. Alternatively, if you have access to the internet and a PC, laptop or tablet, you can access the service from home!

Whether accessing the service in a setting or from home, you will be supported each week by an experience eTherapy Coordinator.

Coronavirus update

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. For your appointment, you will be offered the choice of video, telephone or face-to-face. There is no need to call us to confirm – your regular point of contact will call you at the time your appointment was scheduled.

A number of face to face drop-in groups are now running again with more expected to follow. Further information on the groups available can be viewed at: www.selfhelpservices.org.uk/onlinegroups

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

If you’re worried, think you may have symptoms of Coronavirus or want further information, see the latest advice from Public Health England.

Finally, if you’re struggling through self-isolation, please don’t feel alone. There are local community groups being created all over the country, which you can find here. Alternatively, you can call our community centres in your local area, which you can find here.
