How can we help?
When you come to Thinking Ahead, one of our trained professionals will have a conversation with you to work out the best service for you.
When you are contacted by one of our friendly staff, they will ask you to tell us a little more about how you are feeling, and what you need help with.
We will then arrange your first appointment (usually a phone call), typically within 4-6 weeks, but sometimes sooner.
Then after 4-6 weeks, one of our professionals will give you a call and agree the best way forward to get you the help and support you need.
If we think you could benefit from help with social issues, we will work with you to identify the problematic areas in your life and help you to overcome any challenges you face.
Sometimes a greater level of support is needed. If therapy is the most appropriate option, we’ll arrange your first full appointment, typically within four to six weeks but sometimes sooner.
We offer a range of therapies, including:
- guided self-help
- online therapy
- groups and workshops
- specialised therapy (cognitive behavioural therapy)
Throughout your therapy, you’ll have regular sessions – either online, face-to-face or over the phone. Your practitioner will help you manage and overcome your negative feelings; and keep you motivated along your journey.
Through coming to Thinking Ahead, you’ll feel motivated to focus on the “here and now” of your problems and willing to participate in work between sessions, which can help you to feel better and stay better.
