Living Life

Living Life is a free telephone service, aiming to help people cope with mild to moderate stress, anxiety, depression and / or low mood. Two types of telephone intervention and support are provided:

Living Life Guided Self Help – Self-help coaches guide you over the phone through a series of self-help workbooks to help understand some of the reasons why you are feeling low, depressed or anxious.

Sessions take place over a period of approximately 4-8 weeks, at a time suitable to you. For more see the Living Life Guided Self-Help leaflet

Living Life Cognitive Behavioural Therapy – Specialist help and support, allowing you to work with a qualified therapist over the phone through a series of 6 – 9 telephone sessions. The therapist is able to provide specialist CBT support to you in the short term, helping you address negative patterns of thinking and teaching new ways of coping. For more see the Living Life Cognitive Behavioural Therapy leaflet 

You can access Living Life either by GP referral, or by phoning the free*, confidential phone line on 0800 328 9655 (Mon-Fri 1pm to 9pm). You will be asked to provide some details when you make the initial call to ensure Living Life is best suited to your needs.
