Help for me


Confidential wellbeing support for health and care staff in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire.

We can help you explore the best support options for your situation. You can book an assessment directly or you can access psychological training, webinars, our wellbeing explainers, or the self help advice listed on our ‘common themes’ pages. If your employer already offers a wellbeing service, you should refer to this team first – we are here to complement rather than replace existing services.

If you need urgent help, please see your options for immediate, 24-hour services here. 

Navigation tool – coming soon

To find out more about sources of support available to you or your team we are working on an interactive tool that will help you jump to the resources and services that may be most immediately useful. This will be available soon.

If you would like a referral for a psychological assessment, you can refer yourself directly.

Psychology assessment and consultation


We are offering an initial assessment and consultation slot with one of our clinical psychologists. This is an opportunity to check in with someone about any difficulties you are having in relation to your wellbeing or mental health, think about strategies that might help and, where needed, explore options for further support. At the end of this assessment we will work with you to identify next steps, which may include up to two follow up sessions or referral to a relevant service. Assessments will either take place via video calls, or in our clinic space. Evening appointments (until 7pm) are available three days a week.

You will need to complete a referral form, which you can find here

Confidentiality guaranteed


Any information you provide remains confidential, but should you indicate that there is a risk towards yourself or others, particularly a child or vulnerable adult, or that there is illegal activity taking place, we may need to explore the circumstances further with you.

If you complete a self-referral and you are identified as requiring urgent help and we are unable to contact you directly to discuss this within a safe timeframe we may contact your GP, in confidence, in order to ensure alternative support is available to you.

Please note: We also use anonymised data as a means of constantly evaluating our service, and to improve and plan for any future needs.

Contact with employers

If you have contacted us directly (and not through your manager), you do not need to inform your employer that you have used this service.

We will only contact your employer if you or others are at risk (this includes those under your care), and will always aim to discuss this with you beforehand.
