Problems such as anxiety, depression, stress and phobias are very common. North Tyneside Talking Therapies is a friendly and approachable service that helps people with these problems.

We are here to help adults who live in North Tyneside and are registered with a North Tyneside GP.

We provide evidence-based psychological treatment for anyone experiencing a common mental health condition that impacts on their daily life. These may include stress, depression, anxiety, panic, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and post-traumatic stress.

We can also provide specialist support for people with long-term conditions such as COPD, heart disease and diabetes to help with anxiety and/or depression related to this.

You can refer yourself to Talking Therapies. You can also ask your GP or healthcare provider to refer you.


If you live outside of North Tyneside and would like to receive support, please speak with your GP. Or you can find out more on the NHS Choices website.

Talking Therapies is not an urgent crisis service. Information for patients in crisis is available here.
