Who we are
Think Wellbeing offers free NHS therapy for people in Ashton, Leigh and Wigan with common mental health problems like anxiety or depression, to help you change the way you feel by changing the way you think.

With our easy-to-access, flexible therapy options, you’ll have a choice of either online therapy through a system called SilverCloud or attending one of our group wellbeing courses in your local area.

Our online therapy can be accessed 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week at a time and place that suits you and you can begin accessing help straight away. 

Our group wellbeing courses are available at a range of venues in your local area and you can attend at different times and venues each week if you need to. A new course begins every three weeks so you’ll never have to wait more than a few weeks to join.

Most people find that online therapy or a group course is all they need to feel better but if you still need extra help after completing these, we will offer you face-to-face, one-to-one therapy with one of our specialist therapists.

Who is our service for?
Our service is for adults age 16 and over with common mental health problems like mild to moderate depression, anxiety and stress. We can help with other problems like panic attacks, phobias and post traumatic stress disorder.

Our service is available for anyone who lives within Ashton, Leigh and Wigan or who is registered with an Ashton, Leigh or Wigan GP.

How do I know if the service is for me?
If you've been feeling down, stressed, anxious or panicky, we can help. Some other common reasons for using our service include:
  • Not wanting to do things you used to enjoy, like hobbies or seeing friends
  • Feeling down or hopeless about the future
  • Having trouble sleeping or sleeping more than usual
  • Feeling tired or having little energy
  • Not being able to stop worrying
  • Feeling restless and agitated
  • Feeling afraid all the time, like something bad is going to happen
