Counselling & psychotherapy
Talking therapies are a very useful way for many people to manage and help reduce and manage mild to moderate symptoms from conditions such as depression, anxiety, panic attacks, OCD, phobias, stress, bereavement, loss, PTSD, low self-esteem or low confidence and relationship issues.
The practice does not offer these services, but there are three providers who patients can approach themselves for counselling or psychotherapy.
The first is the University Counselling Service and is based on the Highfield Campus with outreach services at Winchester School of Art. This service does not offer psychotherapy, but does offer an excellent counselling service. In order to discuss accessing this service, please contact the University's Enabling Services using the details below.
The second is the No Limits Counselling Service based in central Southampton. Anyone aged 11-25 can go to their drop in, without making an appointment, and speak in confidence to one of their trained workers about stress, anxiety or anything else that is affecting your emotional health and wellbeing. They can then offer you weekly 1:1 counselling sessions. They can also offer help with issues such as relationships, housing, money, health and substance use.
The third is the NHS Steps To Wellbeing Service and they offer both counselling and cognitive behaviour psychotherapy options. Again, their contact details are shown below.
