Current Talking Therapy Options
We are working hard to continue to support our clients during this time. Although we are currently unable to offer face-to-face appointments we have a number of alternatives on offer including free online therapy guided by our trained staff, telephone, and video conferencing sessions - all from the comfort and safety of your home.
Support for Key Workers
We are prioritising support for all front line workers during COVID-19 - this includes NHS staff, Nursing Home and Care Home staff. Please contact your GP for a referral.
Hounslow IAPT Service during Coronavirus
We will be accepting referrals and prioritising treatment for anyone who is working for the NHS or within Nursing or Care Home settings within the North West London area.
We appreciate that many people will be feeling more anxious at the current time due to Coronavirus / Covid -19. The Hounslow IAPT Service remain committed to offering the best support we can under the current circumstances.
In line with government advice we have implemented a number of changes with immediate effect. As a precautionary measure we will not be offering any face to face appointments and, due to staff shortages, we have temporarily suspended our self referral facility. However, you can still be referred to the service by your Health Care Professional.
We are exploring alternative means of delivering our service and supporting our local community through these unprecedented times and will post regular updates on our Covid-19 Service update page.
In the meantime, we invite you to visit our Resources page for free self-care and self-help materials that you may find useful. We are also in the process of developing a more detailed self-help page dedicated to dealing with Covid-19.
Please visit the NHS website for the latest health and advice updates.
