Staff Psychological Support Service
Please note that some links may only open on devices connected to the NHS network. If you have any questions about support and activities available please contact: email@example.com
We offer free, short-term one-to-one Counselling, Psychotherapy, EMDR (Trauma) and CBT therapy to staff at the UHSussex NHS Trust.
If you have been experiencing anxiety, depression, stress, burnout, grief, trauma, or other distressing life events, you are welcome to self-refer immediately.
Our dedicated counselling team work face-to-face across Brighton, Princess Royal, St. Richard’s and Worthing sites, and offer online and telephone counselling.
In addition, if you are a manager or team leader, the service also provides support to teams across the Trust via Clinical Supervision, Mediation, Psychological Debriefing, and Resilience/Stress Awareness Training.
If you have been suffering, it is not a sign of weakness; you may have been coping with too much for too long. It is a sign of strength to ask for help and can be the first step towards making positive changes in your life.
