Guided self-help

Guided self-help is a type of one-to-one therapy which involves working through self-help material specific to your difficulties with support from a psychological wellbeing practitioner (PWP).

You will receive up to six 30-minute sessions of guided help. The sessions are normally held every two weeks.

Most people prefer to attend sessions face-to-face but we can also provide telephone support if you prefer.

Your practitioners will:

  • Introduce you to self help material and help you to get the most from it
  • Help you tackle negative thoughts and beliefs about yourself and the world
  • Encourage activity and regular exercise which can help you feel better
  • Support you to stay in work or get into work through training and voluntary placements

We have a range of self-help workbooks that cover a variety of different clinical difficulties. We will give you your own free workbook at your first session if this is the treatment that you choose.
