APSI offers a wide range of treatments in a Stepped Care approach which provides the following treatments:
- Guided Self Help (GSH): You are provided with booklets and worksheets tailored to your needs and are supported by a Mental Health Practitioner by both telephone and face-to-face contact over 4 – 6 weeks.
- Group Work: You are offered a place within a group (e.g., stress management group) of up to 12 people. Group sessions are 1.5 hours and are facilitated by two Mental Health Practitioners. Groups and run over 7 weeks.
- One-to-one (1:1) Brief Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT): This is the most intensive intervention that APSI offers and is only for those with appropriate clinical need. You will be offered 6 sessions of CBT with a Mental Health Practitioner.
