About Us

Talking Therapies is an easily accessible service that offers different types of help and support to people in Berkshire suffering with depression, anxiety, phobias or stress. In this section you can find out about Talking Therapies and the Talking Therapies treatments that we can offer you. You can read other people’s stories and also assess yourself to find out what sort of help might support you.


What will happen if I go to Talking Therapies?

Once you’ve called the service and provided some personal details like your name and contact number, you will generally be offered a short telephone appointment, sometimes called an assessment with one of our practitioners which usually takes about 40 minutes.

We will do our best to offer you this appointment at a time that is most convenient for you. We will offer you this appointment as soon as possible after contacting us which will in most cases be within 3 working days.
