Talking Change is the primary care mental health service for Portsmouth, provided by Solent NHS Trust.

We’re a team of therapists and researchers who specialise in the understanding and treatment of common mental health difficulties.

If you’re struggling with low mood and anxiety, or with a physical condition such as chronic pain or fatigue, we provide talking therapies to help you cope and feel better.

Therapy with us involves talking to a trained professional about your thoughts, feelings and behaviour.

We offer a wide range of therapies recommended by the National Institute for Health & Care Excellence (NICE), including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Counselling.

Therapy can be provided one-to-one, in a group, over the phone, via video call or online. Depending on the type of therapy offered, we will see you for 6–12 sessions and each session runs for 30 or 60 minutes. Sessions are scheduled at the same time each week.

We can see you in local health clinics across Portsmouth. All of our clinics are wheelchair friendly. If needed, we can provide an interpreter and easy read information.

It takes strength and courage to ask for help, and we hope you’ll consider therapy with Talking Change.

Steps 2 Wellbeing is the primary care mental health service for Southampton and Dorset, provided by Dorset HealthCare University NHS Foundation Trust.

Within the Steps2Wellbeing service we understand that additional stressors on your physical health can lead to problems with your mental health. Long term health conditions can increase your risk of mental health conditions, and decrease your ability to access help. We want to change this here at Steps to Wellbeing, and out "Body and Mind" services offer tailored help to those suffering from long term health conditions.

We have specialist cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) services for people with chronic pain, including fibromyalgia, endometriosis and adenomyosis.


CBT looks at the ways in which our thoughts, feelings and behaviours affect each other. Our trained and experienced CBT therapists will work with you to explore what changes you could make that would help you to cope better and feel better. We can?t promise to take your pain away, but we will support you to make choices and changes that will enable you to live the best life possible.

Make the first step


Our service accepts self referrals from anyone over the age of 18 registered with a Dorset or Southampton City GP through our secure online form enabling you to take control of your mental health.
