Guided self-help (GSH) is a brief therapy based on the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), which aims to support people with mild to moderate common mental health difficulties, such as low mood, anxiety, and stress.
Your sessions may be weekly or fortnightly and you will have an opportunity to agree the number of sessions in your treatment plan with your Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner. You will usually have 6-8 sessions.
GSH will usually be delivered over the telephone, but may be in person at a local health clinic. Sessions last up to 30 minutes.
A Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner will deliver the therapy and can support you to enable you to make positive changes via the telephone or in person.
You can refer yourself by phoning 0191 282 6600 or by completing the online referral form.
