Guided Self-help is an evidence based treatment for low mood, worry, anxiety, sleep problems, panic and other common mental health concerns. With Guided Self-help you are taught techniques to help you to become your own therapist and manage your own mental health. It is based on the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, which identify links between our thoughts, feelings and behaviours. A Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner will work with you to identify what is causing and maintaining your problems and teach you strategies to practice between sessions.
Guided Self-help involves the patient and practitioner working in collaboration, to develop a shared understanding of the problem. The practitioner will make recommendations and give you information to empower you to help yourself. Unlike a counselling approach, it requires regular time, effort and practice between sessions to develop these skills.
