Request Wellbeing Support Here What is a Wellbeing Practitioner? Someone who has been trained in cognitive behavioural therapies (CBT) for mild to moderate mental health difficulties. Wellbeing Practitioners support you to learn new tools to put into practice, to make changes in the here and now to help you to help yourself with your wellbeing. It might be helpful to know this is quite different to counselling, and involves you practicing skills outside of sessions. Find out more about the Wellbeing team here Wellbeing Practitioners offer you an introductory session before any therapeutic sessions start, to make sure that you’re comfortable with the structure of the sessions and suitable for the service. If it helps, you’re also welcome to bring a family member or friend along to this session. If we feel that CBT is suitable, practitioners will then work with you for up to 8 sessions, each around 45 minutes long. How do I know if this is for me?
