What we can do
The Talking Change team delivers psychological therapies at a range of different levels, also known as 'Steps'. As shown by the base of the
pyramid below, most people who seek help for psychological problems have very mild concerns and issues.
These people in Step 1 are helped by their GP and other staff. Step 2 aims to help people to learn the skills and techniques to manage what is happening for them by supporting and encouraging patients as they work towards recovery. The Step 3 team offer more specific guidance and support for more difficult problems.
At each level, if a persons problems persist or become more severe, they can be "stepped" towards the appropriate service.
After you refer yourself to Talking Change, a team of psychologists and psychological therapists will recommend which level of help may be most appropriate and you will be invited to discuss this in your assessment meeting.
Talking Change and you, what now?
