What are talking therapies?

Talking therapies give people the chance to talk to someone who’s trained to help them explore their thoughts and feelings and the effect this has on their behaviour and mood.

It can help them work out where their negative feelings and ideas come from and why they are there. 


Making positive changes

Understanding all this can help people make positive changes by thinking or acting differently. Talking therapies can help people to take greater control of their lives and improve their confidence.
