If you feel psychoeducation or bibliotherapy hasn’t been effective for you the next step might be to see a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner on a 1-1 basis.
Working with a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner will be much like seeing a general counsellor in that they will seek to help you understand more about your problems, what has caused them and help you to develop techniques to cope with and overcome your feelings.
Sessions will be mostly focused on talking about your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, but your therapist may also provide worksheets or activities for you to complete in your own time.
At the start of each session, it is likely that your therapist will ask you to complete a questionnaire that will help them track your progress and be able to offer more personalised advice and guidance.
Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners can help you:
- Deal with depression or low mood
- Deal with panic attacks and anxiety issues
- Cope with loss
- Grow in confidence and self-belief
- Understand yourself and your feelings better
