What is Talking Therapies Employment Support?

Stress, anxiety and low mood can affect you at work and have a knock-on effect on your mental health. Similarly, being out of work can also affect your mental health as you are unable to reap the benefits of being in employment. The structure and routine of work can be used as a tool to recover from mental health difficulties. Whether you are in work or not, your employment situation can play a big role in how well you recover from therapy.

Our employment service is part of Tower Hamlets Talking Therapies and is delivered in partnership with East London NHS Foundation Trust.

Who is it for?

This service is available to all Tower Hamlets residents currently accessing Tower Hamlets Talking Therapies above the age of 18 years. It is aimed at those who need support and are looking for work, want to return to work and work retention, to ensure that their work situation enables better recovery whilst in counselling.
