NewAccess has been developed to support people experiencing mild to moderate anxiety and/or depression. It's an easy to understand service that does not use medical jargon. It can be accessed without a referral from a GP or any other consultation.
NewAccess provides up to six guided, self-help sessions delivered by a specifically trained coach. Sessions can occur face-to-face, over the phone, via Skype or Face Time.
People using NewAccess work with their Coach to identify key problems and goals that they would like to address. The sessions are focused and the person receives resources and homework tasks to complete in between sessions. In this way, NewAccess arms people with the skills to combat depression and/or anxiety.
