What is Talking Therapy?

Many people go through periods of difficulty in their lives, which can leave them feeling stressed, anxious, depressed or unable to cope.

Sometimes talking about these problems can help. We call these Talking Therapies.

South Gloucestershire Talking Therapies is run by trained practitioners who listen and discuss your problems with you. They can also help you to find ways of tackling or coping with them.

Talking therapies are suitable for a variety of problems, including:

  • depression
  • anxiety/panic
  • work related stress
  • obsessions
  • anger difficulties
  • relationship difficulties
  • eating problems
  • loss/bereavement
  • long term physical health conditions.

 Privacy and confidentiality

Sessions are held in confidence. There will be some professional contact between your practitioner and your GP or other staff involved in your care, unless you indicate to us that you do not want  this to happen. However in situations when we have concerns about your safety or the safety of others we have a duty of care to share information.

We will also ask you whether there are other people in your life (e.g. family member, carer) that you consent for us to share information with.
