Calderdale Talking Therapies



Who can use the service?

Everyone goes through difficult times, but sometimes our problems affect our day-to-day lives and we feel that we can’t cope. If you are in this situation, you are not alone.

Insight Healthcare provides free and confidential talking therapies, commissioned by the NHS, and is available to anyone aged 18+ and registered with a Calderdale GP.

We also work alongside physical health services (such as the chronic pain clinic, GP practices, A&E, and the respiratory clinic) in Calderdale to offer support to people with long-term health conditions such as chronic pain, diabetes, COPD, asthma, heart disease, and epilepsy.

How do I arrange an appointment?

You can self-refer to our service in the following ways:

Once we have received the referral, a member of the administration team will contact you to arrange an appointment. Please note that it is our usual policy to withhold telephone numbers when we call you.

Where does the therapy take place?

Insight Healthcare provides services face-to-face therapies throughout Calderdale, and some therapy can also be provided over the telephone if this is more convenient for you. Face-to-face consultations are carried out in GP surgeries and various health and community venues throughout Calderdale.

Help Calderdale to review adult psychological services

Calderdale Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is reviewing the adult psychological services it commissions (buys). Psychological services include talking therapies, such as counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and specialist assessments and treatments.

The CCG commissions these services from South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (SWYPFT) and Insight Healthcare and makes a contribution to services provided by WomenCentre.

The CCG knows that it can do better; sometimes people have to wait too long for psychological services and not everybody gets the right service that they need. This needs to change and the CCG will work with you and its partners to make things better.

The CCG wants people to give their views about its psychological services. It wants, in particular, to hear from people who use or who have used psychological services in Calderdale.
