At TALKWORKS we’re here to help you feel better about life, and to help you feel like yourself again. Devon's NHS Talking Therapies Service is for people aged 18+ across Devon (outside Plymouth which has it's own service called Plymouth Talking Therapies). We offer support for a wide range of difficulties including: low mood, depression, anxiety, worry, stress, phobias, OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder), PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and sleep difficulties.
We know that it is not always easy to seek support. We therefore try to make our therapy as flexible and as accessible, by offering a range of approaches and talking therapies to help get you 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 one of our bases across Devon, over the phone or by video call), wellbeing workshops, interactive group courses, online self-help (available 24 hours a day) and live text-based therapy (from 6am - 11pm, 7 days a week).

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 and stress are affecting your everyday life and leaving you feeling helpless, we have a team on hand to get you back on track. All of our free and confidential support is available through the NHS. 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.
