Question Answers
Does the North Staffs Wellbeing Service offer Secondary services? I.e. Psychologist assessments? I have been recommended by my works Therapist to ask my GP for such services for which I have a GP appointment on Monday afternoon. I then came across this site which offers self referral so just querying before I attend Monday. Thankscomment-icon2

You have helped me so much with my anxiety I thought I would never be me again but I no longer feel controlled by my body thank you so much. My seizures no longer feel so out of control and I have a life again. I recommend the wellbeing team if you have a physical problem that you feel is controlling you.comment-icon1
On the internet it says you are open till 8pm, is this correct. Do you offer evening appointments then, as most services seem to b just in the day and I work. I don’t drive so was wondering where the appointments take place so I can check the bus times. I would like to refer myself due to my anxiety but will depend on the answers to the above questions as I don’t want get my hopes upcomment-icon3

I have suffered with anxiety on and off for most of my life. I would like to thank this service and particularly my therapist for her support over the last few months, CBT has really worked for me and I am now feeling so much better. I feel I can now manage my anxieties and have learnt how to handle my stress, the diary being a great help. I would like to tell everyone who struggles with anxiety to see someone from this service, they really understand and the approach works - hang in there - you can do it!comment-icon1

I can pretend to be OK but don't enjoy life. This is a life long (61 years) problem and getting worse. I've been "in the system" for many years but don't see anybody anymore. Is there a local meeting / support group of fellow acute depression sufferers ?comment-icon1
My daughter is 17 and is currently suffering with what seems to be social anxiety. Because of that she won't self refer as she feels unable to do so. It is affecting her whole life and we are at a loss what to do. If she is refusing to speak to anybody regarding treatment what can we do? (she won't go to college or go out unless we are with her).comment-icon1
I am struggling with pain everyday and the exhaustion it gives from just trying to do normal things. I don't think the NHS works at all for people with long term problmes like mine. My consultant has written me off as there is nothing more he can do I just have to suffer for the rest of my life. I am starting to see a therapist here who seems nice but I really want to know if anybody has found a way to live with this, I have been suicidal in the past and I don't know if anything can help it just seems hopeless. I have Arthritis I am only 43.comment-icon2
