How to access our service

Appointments

Waiting times

We see you as soon as possible but it may be several months before you receive your first appointment. 

What happens at your appointment

Your assessment appointment is one hour long. You may need to complete some forms and the clinician will ask you questions. This helps to determine the best therapy option for you.

After your first appointment

There may be a waiting time after your first appointment while we allocate you to the best treatment option for you. We might:

  • direct you to another organisation
  • allocate you to one of our groups
  • put you on the waiting list for individual therapy

You may wait a couple of months for a therapy group or individual therapy.

Bringing someone with you

As an adult, we encourage you to see the therapist on your own. However, you can bring someone with you for the assessment if you need to. We discourage the presence of children as this can be disruptive and may be distressing for the child.

Your therapist

If you have been allocated to a one to one therapy waiting lists, it isn't possible to choose an individual therapist. However, we always allow the choice of a male or female therapist if this is important to you. Choosing a therapist by gender, may slightly increase the time you wait to see one.

Out of hours appointments

We offer appointments from 8am to 8pm. We also offer appointments in certain GP surgeries.

You can email JTT or call us from Monday to Friday on +44 (0) 1534 444550.

Referral Details

To book an appointment with one of our therapists you will need to speak to your GP who will be able to decide if our service is the best service to meet your needs and will provide you with further information.   Your GP will give you a leaflet about Jersey Talking Therapies which explains the next steps to take; you will need to phone Jersey Talking Therapies Service to 'opt in'.  Our administrators will take some basic details about you and offer you an appointment to see a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner.  You will then be assessed and offered the right type of therapy at the right time by the right person. 

There are some therapeutic interventions that you can book yourself onto directly without seing your GP. 

Please visit www.mindjersey.org if you want to:

  • book yourself on a course of Computerised Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (cCBT) 
  • book a place on our psycho-educational skills workshop
  • find out about the books we recommend on a range of common mental health issues
