Feeling down or depressed? Suffering from anxiety or panic attacks? Bereavement? Not certain who or what will help? Positive Step provide support and counselling for patients with straightforward mental health concerns. Varying levels of intervention are offered depending on individual need. You may self-refer (see website below) or be referred by your GP.
When first referred you will be given help to access the website. You may be booked onto a course or a telephone appointment arranged for you. Wellness Advisors will then make an initial assessment and either facilitate courses and/or offer 1:1 brief therapy either by telephone or face to face. If more imput is required you will be referred on to a therapist employed by Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership (AWP). They are all trained to deliver cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and offer this either 1:1 or via therapy groups.
