Talking Helps

How can we help?

The service offers a range of talking therapies, advice, information and support. Talking therapies can help you to understand and work through your difficult feelings and develop strategies for coping better. The best therapy will depend on your particular situation.

How do I make an appointment?

You can refer yourself by filling in the online form here. Alternatively, you can ask your GP for a referral to us or contact us directly by phone on 0191 282 6600.

What happens next?

The first step will be to arrange an assessment appointment with one of our therapists. If you choose to contact us directly, we will arrange this appointment with you straight away. This appointment can be booked for a variety of times, including outside working hours.

This assessment is usually done on the telephone and takes about 45 minutes, but it can be done face-to-face if you prefer. As part of the assessment, we will discuss the different treatment options with you, as well as your availability for appointments. You will be offered a choice of effective therapies, so that you can get the support you need.

If our service is unable to help with your needs, with your permission we will suggest an appropriate source of help or refer you directly to it.
