Below are the treatment options that can be offered at Hammersmith and Fulham Talking Therapies (formerly Back on Track). However, we can’t guarantee that all of these options will be offered to you. The option offered will be in line with what you discuss during your appointment, your preferences, and the NHS NICE guidelines for the treatment of mental health concerns.

Cognitive Behavioural therapy groups are currently on offer for:

  • Stress
  • Parents with post-natal mental health concerns
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Social anxiety
  • Low self-esteem and mindfulness-based groups.

Each session is facilitated by two therapists, mostly in the evenings, from 1.5-2 hours in duration.

Sessions are longer than one to one so can go into more depth and offer more time in therapy than 1:1 treatment

• Receive immediate support from other people with shared experiences

Many people are surprised at how much positive change they can achieve in a group setting.

“I was very surprised the learning was very personal with multiple people in the group. I really enjoyed listening to other people's experiences and making connections with myself over and over again. I could relate to other people's experiences.”

This is the same content and time in therapy as 1:1 treatment.
