Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner (PWP)
Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners work with people with mild to moderate depression and anxiety and provide low intensity treatments. The work they carry out may be face to face, over the telephone or using other media. They will start by carrying out an interview to identify areas where you want to see change, and then guide you through self-help techniques, may liaise with other services and provide information about other agencies in your borough. They may also refer you to other therapy if required.
Psychological Therapists carry out a range of psychological treatments. There are two types of Psychological Therapists who work in our services: Counsellors and Cognitive-Behavioural Therapists.
- Counsellor Counsellors are trained to listen to people with empathy, and can help you to work through negative feelings and thoughts that you may have in a confidential and dependable environment. They will help you to understand and find insight into your problems, while encouraging you to express your feelings and emotions.
- Cognitive-Behavioural Therapist (CBT Therapist) CBT Therapists work with people with a variety of problems, including anxiety and depression. The treatment they carry out will be based on cognitive-behavioural techniques to change the way you think and behave. CBT can help to work through your problems in a productive and positive way.
