What we offer

Let’s Talk Barnet IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) offers assessments and short term therapy for people with mild to moderate low mood or anxiety. We offer face to face Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Counselling, as well as Guided Self Help – these are shorter appointments, usually over the telephone, and focus on practical ways for people to manage their difficulties. We work together with Twining Enterprise to offer individualised Employment Support, and along with the Multilingual Wellbeing Service, offer a range of community wellbeing workshops focusing on topics such as stress management and sleep hygiene. Our team includes:

  • Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners (PWPs) who are skilled at helping people find practical ways to manage their difficulties.
  • CBT Therapists who are trained to deliver individual and group cognitive behavioural therapy.
  • Counsellors who are trained to provide an opportunity to talk about day-to-day difficulties as well as difficulties from the past.

Therapy can take place over the phone, or face-to-face.  We offer assessments and therapy in English and Farsi, with interpreters available on request for other languages.
