About Talking Therapies

talkingtherapies@psicon is an NHS-commissioned service which offers free psychological treatments to the people of Canterbury and Kent to help them learn new strategies for coping with common problems such as anxiety, depression/low mood, and stress. We can also help with difficulties such as obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

We believe that a brief intervention can make a big difference, and that a psychological treatment should be a warm and compassionate experience carried out in a relaxed and comfortable environment.
