Northumberland Talking Therapies

Tel: 0300 1234 502 (local rate)
Email: [email protected]
Opening Hours: Monday to Thursday from 8am to 8pm, Friday from 8am to 5pm and Saturday from 9am to 1pm.

The NHS in Northumberland recognises that, each year, nearly a quarter of us have difficulties with common psychological problems such as anxiety, low mood, low self-esteem, stress, trauma, phobias and anger, as well as problems with regard to relationships, work or debt. Because these difficulties have a considerable impact on our lives, this new service has been set up to make appropriate help more readily available to those who need it.

Who can use the service?
Anyone living in Northumberland aged 16yrs and over who would like help with common psychological problems.

How do I arrange an appointment?
Please telephone Insight Healthcare using the number below. A member of the administration team will take your details and arrange your first appointment. You can also send us an email or a fax and we will get back to you.

Do I need to get a referral from my doctor?
No, you can contact the service directly without going through your doctor if you wish. However, you may speak to your doctor first if you would like to. Your doctor will be aware of the service and will be able to advise you about its suitability and will also be able to refer you if you would find that helpful.

Where does the service take place?
Insight Healthcare provides services face-to-face, on the telephone, or online. This depends on the particular treatment, what is most appropriate, and your preferences about where to be seen. Face to face individual therapy, groups and workshops will take place at a variety of NHS and community venues throughout Northumberland.

Core values

Purpose
Hearing Voices Groups are based firmly on an ethos of self help, mutual respect and empathy. They provide a safe space for people to share their experiences and support one another. They are peer support groups, involving social support and belonging, not therapy or treatment. However, groups do offer an opportunity for people to accept and live with their experiences in a way that helps them regain some power over their lives.

Respect
Hearing Voices Groups welcome the diversity of experiences and views of their members. Rather than seeing one belief system as more valid than another, all explanations for voice and visions are valued. There is no assumption of illness. Groups recognise that all members have expertise to contribute to the group, no one member is more important than another.

Flexibility
All Hearing Voices Groups are centred around the needs and aspirations of their members. Rather than being solely focused on voices and visions, group members are welcome to talk about any issue that is important to them.

Ownership
Hearing Voices Groups recognise the importance of being user-centred and are working towards being truly user-led. Each member has an important part to play in determining the direction of the group, keeping it healthy and upholding its ethos.

Confidentiality
All Hearing Voices Groups should be as confidential as possible, with members being fully aware of any limits to this. Wherever possible, what is discussed within the group should stay within the group.
