Our new branding!
If you’ve been to this site or used our service before, you may notice we have adopted a new look and feel.
Some of you told us that the previous branding was starting to look a little dated, so we created the new logo that you can see above. We think this looks and feels more modern and better reflects the service that we provide. If you have any feedback please email: Communications@swlstg.nhs.uk
Sutton Uplift is a free service designed to support your health and Wellbeing in a number of ways.
Online one-to-one CBT provided by IESO Digital Health
IESO Digital Health provides free, one-to-one therapy on behalf of the NHS in Sutton for people with common mental health problems such as depression and anxiety. Qualified therapists deliver live cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) online through typed conversation in a secure virtual therapy room..
Online CBT follows the same format as traditional face-to-face therapy and is proven to be just as effective. You can access the sessions from anywhere you feel most comfortable and at a time to fit around your schedule, including evenings and weekends.
Access to the service is very quick; you can typically have your first appointment within two weeks of being referred. Online CBT is exactly the same as face-to-face CBT, other than that the conversation is typed. Appointments are 30 or 60 minutes long and can be attended from anywhere you can connect to the internet, including from the comfort of your own home.
Your therapist will work closely with you to help you understand how your thoughts and beliefs affect your feelings and behaviours and teach you new coping skills to handle different problems or situations.
