Our Service

Welcome to NHS Talking Therapies

NHS Talking Therapies is a programme designed to increase the availability of talking therapy treatments recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE)

Our therapists and counsellors work in the psychological therapy team as part of Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust. We cover Coventry, Warwickshire and Solihull and we work in partnership with Coventry and Warwickshire Mind, the mental health charity.  If you are registered with a GP in Coventry, Warwickshire or Solihull you can refer yourself or you can be referred by your GP or other health professional. To make sure that NHS Talking Therapies is right for you we will first offer you a brief initial assessment. Most are undertaken over the phone, although alternative arrangements can be made if required. 

For an initial appointment telephone: 02476 671 090  (Lines are open from 9 am to 4.30 pm Monday to Friday) or fill in a form via  Self Referral                                  

The type of treatment you receive will be decided on basis of the assessment. Our therapists and counsellors deliver proven and effective ways to help you self-manage symptoms and deal with feelings that are preventing you from living a normal life. We offer sessions to help fit in with your work and family life, if that helps. We also run a series of free therapeutic courses and group sessions that might be useful. You can also call 02476 671 090 to discuss if these might help you. Where NHS Talking Therapies is not the most suitable service we can signpost you to alternatives where available.
