NHS Mental health support

We're here to help you

At TALKWORKS we’re here to help you feel better about life and to help you feel like yourself again. We're Devon's NHS Talking Therapies Service for people aged 18+ across Devon (excluding Plymouth). If how you are feeling is affecting your daily life, if you are struggling to cope, feel low, anxious or overwhelmed, or living with a long term health condition that is making you feel tired, frustrated and worried, we're here to help. We're free, confidential and effective.

We know that it is not always easy to seek support. We therefore try to make our therapy as flexible and as accessible as possible, by offering a range of approaches and talking therapies to help get your life back on track.

Treatment and support can be carried out in the form of 1-to-1 sessions with a therapist (available face-to-face at various locations across Devon, including our team bases, over the phone or by video call). We also offer wellbeing workshops, interactive group courses and online self-help via Silvercloud (available 24 hours a day).


Self-refer to TALKWORKS

Please don’t feel that you have to hit ‘rock bottom’ to seek help from TALKWORKS. Whether you are feeling a bit ‘off’ and can’t quite put your finger on the problem, or your low mood, anxiety or stress are affecting your everyday life and leaving you feeling helpless, we have a team on hand to help you. All of our therapies and treatments are provided by qualified NHS clinicians. You will never be judged when you come to see us - you will be listened to, you will be heard, and we will work with you to try and help you feel more like yourself again.

Your experience with us

Your feedback matters

“The therapy gently supported me to both understand and come to terms with my diagnosis and how it has impacted on me as a person for so many years. I felt I could be open and honest in a very safe space. I not only feel better, I understand myself better too.”

“I was apprehensive about using the service thinking I wasn't "bad" enough but a talk to the cardiac group by a TALKWORKS practitioner gave me confidence to self-refer. I was referred with respect and taken seriously throughout, felt safe and was given tools and advice to help myself take control of my situation.”

“I could not fault the service I received. I was listened to and given so many different resources to help my anxiety and depression. I was so very low a year ago but with the amazing support from my therapist I feel more and more myself every day. Thank you TALKWORKS.”
