Assessment

Once you have been referred to Lambeth Talking Therapies Service (including Lambeth IAPT), we will give you a call to arrange a telephone triage. This is a short 20-30 minute assessment to find out more about your problems and how we can best help you.

If together we find that the service is right for you and we can help, we will make a face-to-face appointment for you with one of our therapists. Our service covers the entire borough of Lambeth, and the therapist will give you a choice of location. This map shows the locations of where everyone at Lambeth IAPT works. It may be useful to the therapist if you indicate a preference.

At your first face-to-face session, we can decide what kind of therapy will work best for you and how many sessions you may need. You could be asked to do some work at home between sessions, for example; diary-keeping or working on-line if you have internet access.
