IAPT stands for Improving Access to Psychological Therapies, and is designed to make sure everyone can access therapy for low mood and a range of anxiety problems.

Our IAPT teams provide a range of recommended, evidence-based talking therapies for people who would like support for their mental health.

They offer information, guidance and talking therapies in a variety of different formats including:

  • CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) for anxiety
  • EMDR for trauma
  • Interpersonal Therapy
  • Couples Therapy
  • Counselling for Depression

These services can also help people with a range of persistent physical symptoms and long-term physical conditions.
