NHS Talking Therapies
This is a therapy service called NHS Talking Therapies – Anxiety and Depression, which is funded by the NHS. We offer a range of one-to-one therapy including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), person-centred counselling, integrative therapy and Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprogramming (EMDR) therapy as part of this programme.
We can also support you to access guided online therapy support through a platform called SilverCloud. SilverCloud has a range of different modules and uses CBT techniques to help you understand your thoughts, feelings and actions, providing you with tools to manage your problems.
During your initial assessment with our service, we will discuss and agree the most appropriate approach for your problems taking into account any other requirements you have. If we are not the right service for you, we will always signpost or refer you on to a more suitable alternative service.
How do I refer?
To access the service, please complete our secure e-referral form and a member of the team will be in touch with you to arrange an initial assessment within a few weeks. We welcome both self-referrals as well as professional referrals. If you’re referring someone else, please ensure you gain their consent first.

Where can I get help right away?
It’s important to know that there is a wait for support to start and we are not a crisis service. For this reason, if you feel like you’re in crisis or need urgent help right now, we’ve put together a downloadable resource about services who can support you right away (we’d also recommend speaking with your GP in these instances).
How do I contact you with any questions?
You can contact our friendly team by calling 0161 834 6069 or emailing us at email@example.com.
Gaddum delivers part of the NHS Talking Therapies programme in Manchester. Talking Therapies can help people who are feeling distressed by difficult events in their lives, such as a bereavement or a relationship breakdown, as well as people with a common mental health problem like anxiety or depression.
You can access this service if you are over 18 and live, or are registered with a GP surgery, in the City of Manchester.
We offer therapy sessions in person, over the telephone and online using video call and you can choose which is best for you. Our in-person sessions are at a range of GP surgeries in Manchester as well as at our counselling room in Hulme. Sessions are usually delivered within our core hours of 9am – 4:30pm from Mondays – Fridays. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer sessions in the evenings or weekends.
NHS Talking Therapies is a short-term service. We typically offer 8 sessions of therapy, but this can be extended to 12 sessions where it is needed.
This service is free.
