For the first time, the National Health Service waiting targets for mental health will come into force from next April. The plan is for anyone who’s in need of referral for talking therapies to start treatment within six weeks of seeing their GP. The maximum waiting time will be 18 weeks, Nick Clegg has promised.

I expect many of us view politicians’ promises with a pinch of salt. At least this one helps to raise awareness of the essential part talk therapy should play in mental wellbeing.

If you or someone you love is waiting for talk therapy on the NHS because you can’t afford to pay for treatment privately, think again.

Many therapists, including myself, offer low-cost or no-cost sessions in certain circumstance, if you just ask. In my case, I also offer Single Session Therapy…. with no waiting time!
