A counselling service is available at the medical centre with our counsellor Penny Merrett.
We can also refer you to one of our IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) team, Amy Mayfield, Mike Goodchild and Raymond King. This can include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or CBT. These members of the team would see you here in the surgery in familiar surroundings.
Please make an appointment with the doctor first so that you can be assessed and referred if it felt appropriate.

A long appointment is always allocated by the counsellor and for this reason we do please ask that you cancel with as much notice as possible if you are unable to make the appointment.
Improving Access to Psychological Therapies has it’s own website here where you can find useful dates for stress control and healthy living workshops and much more information to help you.

Having a long-term health condition can be frustrating or worrying at times. It is very common for health conditions to affect how you feel and for your mood to affect your health condition. This can lead to feeling stressed, low, anxious or worried.

Are you living with a long-term health condition, feeling worried about your health or in persistent pain?
Are you feeling stressed, low or anxious? The health and wellbeing service is right for you. We can help you to ‘live well’ with your health conditions and improve your wellbeing through a range of free living well courses, one to one sessions or online therapy.
