Our service offers both low and high-intensity courses of treatment, depending on which is more appropriate. Further details on these and our stepped care approach are outlined below.

Whenever possible we offer low-intensity courses of treatment in the first instance. This is the recommendation of the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) because low-intensity courses are the easiest to access and most widely available.

Low Intensity

Low-intensity options include workshops, groups, and guided self-help using workbooks or online packages. Guided self-help includes one-to-one support, often in the form of weekly or fortnightly telephone calls.

High Intensity

High-intensity therapies usually involve weekly one-to-one sessions (by telephone or face to face) with a therapist who specialises in a particular form of therapy, e.g. cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT – https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/cognitive-behavioural-therapy-cbt/) or interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT)  – find out more.

You and your therapist will review your progress together and may decide to step up your treatment (low to high intensity), or step it down (high to low intensity), or across (to another option at the same step) before you are ready to complete your treatment and be discharged.
