Useful Information & Links

Sometimes things can seem overwhelming, and you may feel like you can’t cope. You might simply just be having a bad day, or you may have an ongoing mental health problem that needs support.

The important thing is not to try to cope on your own. Call our helpline available 24/7 on  0808 801 0550

Our helpline staff can help with:

  • ‘in the moment’ support which may be solution focused and could include practical, pragmatic ways of coping with stress and anxiety effectively.

  • CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), if appropriate

  • 6 sessions of telephone counselling (subject to assessment)

  • Face to face counselling (eligibility assessment required for this)

  • additional signposting when needed

All our services are confidential, your employer does not need to know (unless you decide to share it with them) and we will not share your details with anyone.

There is no cost, no waiting lists, just timely professional support to help you get better and your life back on track.
