What can this service offer?

Following your self-referral, you will be contacted by a clinician for a brief telephone discussion to assess your suitability for the service, and answer any questions you may have. This may last up to 15 minutes.

If you and the clinician agree that TDDSS would be a suitable service for you, you will be invited to participate in a longer face to face or telephone assessment. Face to face assessment will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Brunswick Centre near Russell Square in central London.

Following this assessment you may be offered one of the following:

  • Access to online CBT support tools
  • Drop in peer support/reflective practice group
  • Access to psychoeducational groups e.g. Mindfulness programme
  • Access to a topic based event, such as a ‘stress and examinations’ event, which will be held across London and the South East


You may also be offered further follow up sessions with your assessing clinician (capped at a maximum of 4 sessions)

We may also be able to offer help, advice and signposting around issues such as alcohol or substance misuse and other helpful coping strategies.


Please note:

This service has been commissioned by Health Education England and is available to trainees on programmes managed by HEE Local Offices in London & the South East.  A trainee who leaves a L&SE managed programme will no longer have access to sessions/programmes.
