About Us

We have been providing psychological services to the people of Swindon for the past 25 years and pioneered Primary Care Psychology services within the country.

We offer a high quality service that includes traditional ImprovingAccess to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) interventions plus additional support.

Our founder Dr. Liz Howells received an OBE for this work in 2010. Since then we have continued to innovate and better meet the needs of our clients. Over the past eight years, we have been developing specific support for people living with numerous health conditions, including diabetes and coronary heart disease, for which we have been shortlisted for various national awards.

In 2011 we won four out of a possible eight regional IAPT awards, we were shortlisted for a Health and Social care award and we took part in a BABCPconference panel. We have a strong service user representation which continues to steer the service.

In May 2015 we were one of the first IAPT services to be accredited by the Royal College of Psychiatrists after completing an extensive Accreditation Programme for Psychological Therapies Services(APPTS) which is the newest quality accreditation for an IAPT service.

What can the service offer me?

We aim to see people quickly and have the shortest waiting times in the region.  We also try to make coming to an appointment as convenient as we can.  Appointments with the Mental Health Practitioner can be arranged by calling your GP Practice.

You can also attend one of our psycho-educational courses, which run in the evenings, weekends and day times.  They can be easily booked through our website HERE, by post or by phone on 01793 836836
