Guided self Help: 

We also have manuals and books on prescription schemes, which describe in more detail how to improve your mood by using CBT. Whilst reading these books, a member of Our Roots Team can offer you tailored guidance and support, usually over the telephone or face to face.

Group activities/ Courses: 

Our courses provide education on topics related to stress, anxiety, depression, self-esteem and some Long-Term Conditions. The courses run for 6 to 8 weeks, covering practical techniques and tips which help you learn how to manage your mood or anxiety in a supportive and friendly environment.

Individual Therapy:

Alternatively, we may suggest you visit one of our therapists to talk in more depth about your individual circumstances and jointly develop a treatment plan to meet your needs. As with all our care, face-to-face therapy follows NICE (National Institute for Health Care Excellence -, which provides guidance regarding the most appropriate intervention for your problems.

Waiting Times: 

We take pride in having shorter waiting times and always endeavour to keep this promise. This is the reason our waiting times are from 2 to 4 weeks. Don't Struggle in Silence: Depression and Anxiety Disorders are very common in the population and Our Roots can help you.

CBT is effective in treating Depression and a range of Anxiety Disorders. Find out more about CBT on the NHS website:
