Tower Hamlets Talking Therapies


Service Description

Tower Hamlets Talking Therapies offers a range of free and confidential talking therapies and specialist self-management skills to help you feel better within the borough of Tower Hamlets.

Once you have been referred by your GP or you have made a self-referral, we will call you as soon as possible to verify your information. At the same time, we will book you in with one of our therapists for an initial telephone assessment.

At this assessment, the therapist will discuss your current difficulties and explain the most suitable treatment options. Following the assessment, we will get back to you within a few days to confirm your treatment package.

Individual therapy may consist of telephone, face to face and online sessions. The length of sessions, number of sessions and frequency of sessions will vary depending on the main presenting problem and the level of severity of difficulties. The first stages of individual therapy usually involve an assessment and creating a shared understanding between client and therapist of the client’s difficulties and maintaining factors. The treatment plan is then discussed and agreed upon. Tower Hamlets Talking Therapies offers short term evidence based interventions, predominantly based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy principles.

Your assessing therapist would be happy to discuss further with you and guide you to clinically appropriate treatment options based on your main presenting difficulties.
