How we help you to feel better

About us

Lewisham Talking Therapies offers a range of free and confidential talking therapies and specialist support to help you reduce depression and anxiety symptoms. We offer a range of short-term psychological therapies to adults 18 years and over, who are registered with a Lewisham GP.

We offer a range of therapies

We believe that therapy is most effective when you focus on one course of treatment at a time. Given this, we only offer one type of therapy. If you are currently in therapy elsewhere, we would advise that you wait until this is completed and take some to consolidate your learning before considering a referral to our service.
