Who are Steps2Wellbeing?

Steps2Wellbeing are a team who help people with anxiety and depression. We help people by providing talking therapies, like counselling or cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).

Counselling means talking to a therapist about your problems.

Cognitive behavioural therapy helps you to make links between how you feel and how you think and behave.

Both counselling and CBT teach you how to cope with your problems.

What do we help with?

We can help you if you:

  • feel very sad or anxious

  • feel stressed or panicky

  • have been through something very difficult or frightening

  • have lost someone close to you

We can help people with mild learning disability, if you are over 18 years old and you have a Dorset or Southampton Central GP practice.

How to get an appointment

You can refer yourself to the service by clicking on the link above.

You can get someone to help you to do this if you would like. If you would like to speak to us on the phone click here and call the number for your area.

You can also be referred to us by your GP, or your learning disability team. It is a good idea to tell us that you have a learning disability so that we can make adjustments for you, your appointments and the information we give you. Most of our letters, handouts and questionnaires are available in easy read format.

What happens next?

When we see you we ask you some questions, and get you to fill in a questionnaire about how you are feeling. This helps us to know how to help you.
