South Tyneside Lifecycle Primary Care Mental Health Service
The South Tyneside Lifecycle Primary Care Mental Health Service team

We offer a confidential service to individuals, families and groups depending on which method is most effective.

We aim to help people through difficult times in their lives. We initially offer an assessment appointment to help you to decide, with the support of one of our experienced therapists, which therapy would be the most helpful to you.

What can we help with?

We aim to have a positive effect on the mental health and emotional well-being of those children, young people, and adults who are experiencing, or who are at risk of developing emotional, behavioural and psychological difficulties (common mental health problems).

The Service provides interventions recommended by the National Institute for Health and Social Care Excellence (NICE) for a range of mental health difficulties – such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Trauma
  • Stress
  • Bereavement
  • Low Self Esteem
  • and other emotional issues

The types of therapy provided include:

  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
  • Cognitive Analytical Therapy (CAT)
  • Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Interpersonal Therapy (IPT)
  • Mindfulness
  • Primary Care Mental Health – workers who offer integrative brief therapy
  • Short Courses and Supported Self Help (4-6 weeks) that help people understand common mental health difficulties they might be experiencing and what they can do about them.

Where is the service provided from?

This exciting six day service will offer extended late evening appointments Monday – Thursday and Saturday opening. The main base will remain at Cleadon Park Primary Care Centre with appointments offered to clients at Flagg Court Primary Care Centre, Monkton Hall as well as other venues across the borough.
