We’re here to help

Although we’ve had to stop all face-to-face appointments, we’re still able to help you by telephone, online or video calls. And we’re accepting new self-referral using the form on this website.

If you do need to contact us, you can email huh-tr.talkingtherapy@nhs.net and we’ll get back to you by email or phone as soon as we can. Please don’t telephone us while we adjust to our new way of working. Thanks for your understanding.

We know that these are worrying times for everyone. If you’re finding it hard to cope, we’re here for you.

If you need urgent help, City & Hackney have a crisis helpline that remains open 24 hours a day. Please ring them on 020 8432 8020 if you are worried that you might harm yourself or someone else.


Talk Changes for Health

Helping you feel in control and live life to the full

Talk Changes for Health is a free, confidential NHS service for adults who are registered with a City and Hackney GP.

Our specialist team helps people with a long-term illness to manage their condition, feel in control and live life to the full.

We understand that living with an ongoing health condition can be difficult. Juggling appointments, remembering to take your medicines, and not always being able to do the things you enjoy can be frustrating and tiring.


That’s why we’re here to help

We are part of Talk Changes, a local NHS service. We offer a range of tried and tested talking therapies. These involve talking with a trained professional if you’re feeling stuck and can help you make long-lasting positive changes.

NHS talking therapies have helped millions of people to manage their thoughts and feelings. Evidence shows that talking therapies can also help people with a long-term physical health problem to stay motivated, stick to treatment plans and enjoy a better quality of life.

We are based at the Louis Freedman Centre next to St Leonard’s Hospital in Hoxton. We offer face-to-face appointments but also provide support over the telephone, online and in groups. We’ll help you get the right support in the most convenient way.


Contact us

The easiest and quickest way to get in touch is through the online referral form.

Most people receive an initial telephone assessment within two weeks. Following this, we’ll agree a plan with you and book your next appointment.
