Talkworks are an organisation designed to work with people experiencing a mild to moderate mental health problem. We want to see people at an early opportunity in order to stop things getting more severe. We work with the following: depression, panic attacks, obsessive compulsive disorder, anxiety, excessive worry, health anxiety, social anxiety, specific phobias (dentists, animals etc), post-traumatic stress disorder, agoraphobia, people with long-term physical health conditions who are finding this is affecting their moor, stress, sleep problems and more. We offer support in a variety of ways including face-to-face, telephone, online and group work. We offer predominantly cognitive behavioural therapy (not counselling), but have other types of therapy available too depending on a person’s need. If someone isn’t sure they are bad enough it is much better to be seen for an assessment so we can help you decide and show you what we offer.
