Supported self-help is an early intervention service which uses guided tools to support your mental wellbeing. It involves 6 sessions with a trained practitioner to look at what support you need and develop a wellbeing toolkit.

After a simple assessment to see if the service is appropriate for you, our trained practitioners will hold up to 6 regular one-to-one sessions with you, via online video calls, telephone or face-to-face.

You will select a pathway to support your mental wellbeing. From these pathways, your practitioner will support you to try a range of self-help tools to help you stay well and put together a toolkit of resources that work best for you. Your practitioner will support you to do this in your weekly sessions.

“I really enjoyed my supported self-help sessions – it felt good to be able to talk about issues and then given the tools to use in day-to-day situations to help with anxiety.  It was very beneficial to me and has made a huge difference to my quality of life”

The supported self-help pathways

  • Anxiety and panic attacks
  • Coping with grief and loss
  • Loneliness and feeling lonely
  • Low self esteem
  • Low mood and depression
  • Managing anger

We will arrange regular sessions to check in on how you’re doing and give you any support you might need. We’ll also provide materials to help you understand and manage your feelings. These might include:

  • Pathway workbooks
  • Explaining how and why we experience difficult emotions

In your last session, together we’ll review how you’re feeling and talk about the ways the course has helped and if there is any other support you might need.
