How do we help?
Once you have been assessed and we have agreed how we are best able to meet your needs, our service offers you a choice of treatments either through our Recovery College or a range of individual and group talking therapies. A choice of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Counselling, EMDR and IPT are available. In addition we have a number of specialist services that provide therapy for:
- Maternal wellbeing

The Recovery College enables people with mental health challenges to have the same opportunities in life as everyone else. We endeavour to support people on their personal journey towards a meaningful and satisfying life, where hope, opportunity and choice are the key elements. The college aims to help people to become experts in their own self-care, and enable family, friends, carers and staff to better understand mental health. Courses are co-produced with users, carers and professionals working in partnership. The Recovery College also provides vocational support for people with employment needs.
