Mid Essex IAPT Service (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies)

We no longer have a dedicated counselling service but people who need a talking therapy can be referred to the IAPT service where they may be offered either counselling or CBT

Please note: IAPT service is not able to provide immediate support in an emergency. If you require immediate urgent help, please contact your GP or call the North Essex Crisis Line on 0845 0380800

Every year, four out of 10 people in the UK experience common psychological problems, such as depression, stress, anxiety, panic and obsessive compulsive disorders.

The Mid Essex Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) programme offers a new approach to help adults suffering from common psychological problems.

What is the IAPT programme? IAPT stands for Improving Access to Psychological Therapies. IAPT was developed nationally to provide psychological therapies proven to help adults with depression and anxiety disorders.

Who can be seen by Mid Essex IAPT? We welcome people aged 18 and above registered with a Mid Essex GP who are experiencing difficulties such as:

  • Depression
  • Generalised anxiety
  • Stress
  • Panic
  • Phobias
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Health anxiety
  • Post-traumatic stress
  • Social anxiety

We also work with 17 year olds if we are best placed to support them. If you have a severe mental illness, e.g. schizophrenia or bipolar affective disorder, a diagnosed personality disorder or high levels of self-harm or suicidal thoughts with plans to act on them, your care needs would be better met by a secondary care service, such as a community mental health team.  Your GP can refer you to this.  Mid Essex IAPT does not work with people currently under secondary care as they will be supported by this service instead.

You can self refer to this service click here for the IAPT website - where you can complete/download a referral form.
