Talking services involve talking to a worker, either face-to-face or over the phone. They have been trained to listen attentively and understand different types of emotional issues. Their role is to provide support and help you find more effective ways of dealing with your stress in a non-judgemental way.

They can help you identify helpful patterns of thinking regards issues such as:

  • Dealing with loss
  • Depression
  • Anxiety and/or panic
  • Relationship breakdowns

The broad range of support available in Sandwell means that people have the freedom to choose one that best suits them. For example some people find it more convenient to have support from a therapist over the phone while they use self-help workbooks, while other people prefer face to face contact.
