Patients can be referred to the South London and Maudsley NHS Trust for counselling, as part of the "Improving Access to Psychological Therapies" (IAPT) service through which patients have access to different types of psychological therapies, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, for a wide range of psychological problems.
