17 Apr 24

Mid Essex Talking Therapies proudly marks a significant milestone this year as they celebrate 15 years of dedicated service to mental health and wellbeing, supporting residents across Braintree, Chelmsford and Maldon.  

Mid Essex Talking Therapies provide a confidential service to those struggling with stress, anxiety and depression. Our therapists work in partnership with our service users to help them understand and cope with the difficulties they are having.  We offer different types of talking therapies depending on the needs of the individual, including practical exercises and tasks which can be delivered one to one or in a group. 

From small beginnings in 2009, Mid Essex Talking Therapies has continued to grow and has provided support to over 72,500 residents.  The service regularly receives positive patient feedback from those who have been supported.

“We are immensely proud to celebrate this milestone anniversary" said Chang Tran, Mid Essex Talking Therapies, CBT Therapist. "The service gave me my first and only NHS job and as one of the original team, I have seen it grow from a small team of around 15 therapists covering a small area to now having nearly 100 staff covering the whole of Mid Essex. I am extremely proud to be part of the team and playing an important role in supporting so many journeys towards recovery”.

Mid Essex Talking Therapies, for anxiety and depression programme (formerly known as Improving Access to Psychological Therapies, IAPT) is a free, confidential NHS service for people aged 17 and over that provides a wide range of talking therapy treatments for adults with common mental health problems including depression and anxiety disorders.
