Counselling and Psychological Therapies
Counselling and Psychology Services are available at the surgery and other sites locally through CNWL Brent Talking Therapies . You may be referred through your GP or you can self-refer (Telephone 020 8206 3924). You will receive telephone triage and offered a suitable appointment for the most appropriate treatment, maybe counselling , maybe CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) or some other service.
Also available in Brent is Big White Wall, an on-line support service and community. Big White Wall is a digital support and recovery service for people who are stressed, anxious, low or not coping. At the heart of Big White Wall is its community of members, who support and help each other share what’s troubling them in a safe and anonymous environment, with the guidance of trained professionals, who are online 24/7.
Mental Health Services
A wide range of services is provided for more serious mental illness by Central & Northwest London NHS Foundation Trust and usually the best route is to see your GP for a referral. If you are seen in Accident & Emergency you may also see a psychiatrist in an emergency but may still need referral into the service for ongoing care from your GP.
