Primary Care Psychology Service (IAPT) Ashton, Leigh and Wigan

We are committed to improving adults with access to psychological therapies and to promoting psychological well-being throughout the communities we serve.

Our Psychology Service helps patients to:

  • Manage and recover from mild to moderate anxiety and depression
  • Understand and change currently unhelpful actions and patterns of thinking
  • Avoid long-term mental health problems

What we can offer in Ashton, Leigh and Wigan

As part of our commitment to improve access to psychological therapies, and to provide our adult patients with a choice of interventions, we offer both individual and group-based CBT sessions.

For example, we have recently introduced a rolling programme of an eight-week group based CBT course to help our patients to manage their anxiety and depression.

We try to make the service convenient for our patients by offering a choice of local clinics or surgeries, and daytime and evening appointments.

Likewise, we try and tailor the individual needs of our patients to the most appropriate therapy and offer a choice of evidence-based interventions, including CBT and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR).

Accessing our services

If you feel you need our help, please speak to your GP. He or she can help decide if our service is right for you and support you through our ‘opt-in’ referral system.
