Making life better 2gether

Do you feel stressed, anxious or depressed?

You are not alone. These are some of the most common problems that affect thousands of people everyday.  We all go through difficult times but sometimes our problems can start to affect our daily life.

Everyone needs to talk from time to time. Let’s Talk is an Improving Access to Psychological Therapy service (IAPT). It is free and provided by your local NHS. We offer information, guidance and therapy during times when you feel stressed, anxious or depressed.

It is important to recognise early signs that you are not yourself. So whether you experience difficulties yourself or supporting someone, Let’s Talk is your first step to getting help.

Let’s Talk works in three ways:

On the left hand side menu of this website you will find a Gaining Control Self Help Toolkit. These pages are regularly updated with information to help you learn more about common problems. It also gives you ideas and suggestions on how best to tackle them.

You can also find additional reading suggestions in your local library. Look out for Recommended Reading stickers that your local practitioners have placed on books.  Some of these books are listed on this website here.

Guided Self Help
If you need further guidance and information because problems are beginning to interfere with your daily life, you can call us between 9:00am and 5:00pm Monday to Friday on 0800 073 2200.

Over the telephone we will talk through your difficulties with you and together we can decide the best next step. This may be through one or two telephone conversations, attending a course at a college or on your home computer.

You can also attend one of our emotional wellbeing courses.  You can read when and where the courses take place by clicking here. If you’re interested in attending, please give us a call.

Continued Assessment
If you are continuing to struggle, we will discuss additional ways to help. The first step is understanding what help is available.  Whatever your journey with us, you will discover ways of coping now and in the future.


One in four of us experience a mental health problem. Talking therapies can help you feel more positive and in control.
