              Summary

              We are the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) service part of Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust. We are a wellbeing service offering a range of free psychological therapies to people aged 16 and over in Lancashire.

              What we do

              1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year. Many of us go through difficult times in our lives, which can leave us feeling worried, anxious or depressed and feeling unable to cope.  

              Mindsmatter offer access to a range of brief therapeutic interventions, including courses & workshops, online programmes and face to face therapy, across our localities to support people’s differing emotional needs.

              The Mindsmatter team is made up of Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners (PWP), Cognitive Behavioural Therapists (CBT), Counsellors, and our supportive admin staff. Please see our FAQ section for further information.

              Giving people the right information and help to develop skills and gain tools to overcome stress, anxiety and depression is at the heart of what we do.  

              What we aim to do

              We aim to provide people who experience difficulties such as stress, anxiety and depression with access to our service. We aim to empower people to make informed choices and changes to improve well-being and live fulfilled lives by offering a range of talking therapies and self help to meet your needs.
