Counsellor / Psychologist
The surgery is also able to refer to the Merton Uplift service for cognitive behavioural therapy and other psychological therapies. Patients can also self refer. Merton Uplift is a free service supporting anyone who has a mental health or wellbeing need, whether this is due to emotional difficulties such as anxiety or depression, or life stressors.
If you are interested in finding out more about or service please call Merton uplift on www.mertonuplift.nhs.uk.
You do not need to be referred by your GP or any other professional. Just get in touch with Merton Uplift and they can talk through whether their service is for you. They aim to support people with Wellbeing in many ways so no problem is considered to be too small.
At present we have an IAPT psychologist working at the surgery one day per week but you can also choose to be seen at a different local site. In addition there is also online psychological therapy available with IESO through the Merton Uplift service. These psychological therapies are NHS services with no charge to patients
