Here at TALKWORKS, Devon's NHS Talking Therapies Service, we are an inclusive service and we welcome referrals from members of the Deaf Community. We have also recently welcomed a Deaf Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner who can communicate in British Sign Language (BSL).
Our therapists are trained to work compassionately and empathetically with you to understand what you are going through. If you are nervous about having an appointment with us, please be assured that we are here to help you. We can provide an interpreter as part of our therapy sessions, and this can be done as a face to face appointment or online via video call.
If you would like to self-refer to TALKWORKS, you can do so by emailing us on firstname.lastname@example.org. In your email, please mention that you are a member of the Deaf community, and we will then take this into account when arranging your assessment.
