Assessing your psychological well-being:

If the answer is “yes” to one or more of these questions, then you are not alone. There are 30,000 people in Trafford struggling in silence with the impact of such emotional difficulties.

We're here to help when life is difficult

Trafford Psychological Therapies provides talking therapy for adults of all ages: free, confidential, and proven effective. You do not have to endure this unnecessary suffering. They have trained practitioners offering support ranging from guided self-help with Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), Psychology and Counselling, enabling you to learn ways to help you cope better. In addition to individual therapy, they also offer couple counselling for depression and group work.

Examples of things they could help you with:


“I cannot remember when I last felt so positive about my life & future. You have restored my confidence & I now approach my life & problems as they arrive, with a new ‘lease of life!’ My sense of humour & fun has been restored & I am determined that I shall remain a happy, motivated & valuable family member & member of my community. Without your dedication, expertise & understanding approach, I would never have been able to achieve this.”
Trafford Patient
“I was really at the end of my tether with my social anxiety; it was impacting every part of my life and getting worse. I knew I needed help, and I'd put it off for too long. Lockdown was the final straw, and I made the call. I had heard about CBT, but I didn't know whether it would work for me because I thought my problem was so bad...I'm so glad I was wrong. So my experience of your service was amazing, my goals when we first set them seemed impossible for me to achieve, and now I'm smashing them every day. I can't put into words the difference it has made to my life, home life, and with family, friends and work, and since finishing therapy, I know I am still improving.”
