If you live in England and are aged 18 or over, you can access NHS psychological therapies (IAPT) services.
A GP can refer you, or you can refer yourself directly without a referral.
IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) services offer:
- talking therapies, such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), counselling, other therapies, and guided self-help
- help for common mental health problems, like anxiety and depression
You need to be registered with a GP to get talking therapies on the NHS.
