Greenwich Time to Talk Greenwich

There are times when everyone feels stressed or unhappy. Generally these bad times pass, but sometimes there are problems that do not go away and things get harder and harder. One in four people can feel this way at some point in their life.

Talking about your problems can really help.

Time to Talk is part of a national programme called Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT). It is for people with mild problems of anxiety or depression who are motivated to work to change the problem.

Our team of therapists are based in Eltham, but can see patients at other centres throughout the borough.

Greenwich Time to Talk offers free psychological treatment as recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines for anxiety and depression. This is mainly cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) and counselling. We can help you learn ways to help yourself so that you feel more able to cope with your problems.

We offer support for people over 16 who are either registered with a Greenwich GP or live in the Greenwich Borough.

We also provide a specific services for 16 and 17 year olds, 65 year old and above and people suffering from long term conditions.

Guided self-help, cognitive behavioural therapy and sometimes medication may help you to manage anxiety or stress better. Depending on your circumstances, you may benefit from one of these types of treatment or a combination.
