Mental Health & Counselling

Counselling services are provided by Wiltshire IAPT service. They offer a wide range of support, from psycho-educational courses to one to one intervention. 

Most of us have times in our lives when we need help through difficult situations, such as redundancy, bereavement, abuse or just feeling depressed and unable to cope.

The IAPT service is an opt-in service. This means that patients have to access it themselves rather than be referred by their clinician. Further information and how to access the service can be found at

Although you access the service via IAPT, the one to one counselling takes place at the surgery. The service is strictly confidential between the counsellor and the client.

They offer a number of different courses in many locations all over Wiltshire which can be booked over the phone. For more information, please visit Below are some upcoming courses and workshops.
