What is italk?
You will need a referral from your GP to this new service providing psychological therapies for people living in Eastleigh, Gosport, Havant, New Forest and Test Valley.
The treatments we offer are recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE).
What are psychological therapies?
These are sometimes called talking therapies.
'Talking about your thoughts and feelings can help you deal with times when you feel troubled about something. If you turn a worry over and over in your mind, the worry can grow. But talking about it can help you work out what is really bothering you and explore what you could do about it.
Talking therapies give people the chance to explore their thoughts and feelings and the effect they have on their behaviour and mood. Describing what's going on in your head can help you work out where your negative feelings and ideas come from and why they are there. Understanding all this can help people make positive changes by thinking or acting differently.'
(Mental Health Foundation 2009)
Most of the treatments offered by italk are based on cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), which is a type of talking therapy.
Who is it for?
People over the age of 16 who have problems such as depression/anxiety. This could include obsessive compulsive disorder, phobias, panic and post-traumatic stress disorder.

How will you know if it is helping you?
We hope that you will start to notice changes in how you react, feel better or feel you are starting to overcome your problems.
We will also use short questionnaires at each of the sessions. These help to measure how you are feeling and moving towards the goals you have set.
