What services do you offer?

At Anxiety UK, we have always offered a range of services – some for people with very mild anxiety problems whilst providing services for others who have more severe and longstanding anxiety issues.

We passionately believe in choice. Those who use our services are unique individuals. Therefore their journey towards recovery from anxiety will also be unique. Because of this, Anxiety UK has an extensive range of services to meet your needs, from ongoing support to self help. You choose the level of service/support that you feel you need – because you know best.

Anxiety UK therapies include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), counselling, clinical hypnotherapy and neuro-linguistic programming. We have therapists based all over the country and offer face to face, telephone and web-cam sessions.

All our therapies are available to members of Anxiety UK and are offered at significantly reduced rates (fees range from £12 – £50 per session dependant on client’s household income) compared to standard private practice rates. And because we offer therapies over the phone and via web-cam, we are able to help support you no matter where you live. There is a lot of positive evidence on the use of telephone therapy to deliver counselling and CBT so please consider this option if we do not have a therapist in your area.
