Westminster Talking Therapies is a free, confidential NHS service which provides psychological treatment for depression and anxiety disorders.

Talking Therapies and counselling services are suitable for people with problems which have arisen fairly recently.  Feelings of low mood, anxiety, particular fears or problems coping with daily life and relationships, are all suitable for brief focused talking therapies.

People seeking help with difficulties other than depression or anxiety, or whose difficulties require more specialist or intensive treatment which cannot be provided in a primary care setting, can be directed to the appropriate specialist or secondary care mental health services.

The service is delivered at:

  • Vauxhall Bridge Road, 190 Vauxhall Bridge Road SW1V 1DX
  • Westminster North Hub, 11 Praed Street W2 1NJ
  • GP practices
  • And other locations across Westminster.
