How we can help
Different treatments are recommended for different problems.
Talking Changes offers psychological interventions that include talking therapies and self-management programmes.
Evidence shows that talking therapies are effective, either on their own or in combination with anti-depressant medication. They enable people to understand their difficulties and learn to treat themselves, which can help prevent problems returning.
The service follows guidance and uses evidence based psychological treatments as recommended by the National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE).
