What we offer

The Lincolnshire Staff Wellbeing Hub is a completely independent service providing discreet and confidential support to ALL staff working in health and social care across Lincolnshire.

The Lincolnshire Staff Wellbeing Hub offers a holistic approach to support your wellbeing. This includes a range of social activities, workshops, training and therapies including rapid access to assessment and onward care navigation together with a variety of psychological therapy and interventions ranging from a supportive conversation with one of our team, to 1:1 therapy.

  • The Hub Support Line: offers a supportive listening service alongside a triage process for those in need. It provides a safe, judgement free space to offload, wobble or even just chat.
  • Hub follow up support  - this is an informal support facilitated by one of our team to provide you with a safe judgement free space to offload and talk through your current difficulties. This would be a continuation of the support from our hub support line as required. We are able to provide supportive listening, guidance and signposting to help you through a challenging time.
  • Psychological assessment  -  Assessment is an open conversation between you and a mental health practitioner about your thoughts, feelings, actions and concerns you might have about your personal, professional life or relationships. The more open and honest you can be the easier it will be to find you the right help and support. It typically lasts up to an hour, although if your needs are particularly complex, assessment can consist of a number of sessions.
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a type of talking treatment which focuses on how your thoughts, beliefs and attitudes affect your feelings and behaviour, and teaches you coping skills for dealing with different problems. The Hub offers support with a range of low intensity interventions informed by CBT.
  • Computerised CBT (CCBT) A range of programmes designed to help you understand more about your current difficulties before walking you through useful techniques based on CBT. This involves weekly telephone reviews with a clinician.
  • Counselling – Person centred counsellors offer a reflective, non-judgemental space, guiding you to discover your own solutions.
  • Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners (PWP) Support with a range of low intensity interventions informed by CBT in the form of written or computerised guided self help for the treatment of anxiety and depression.
  • Psychology One to one support with an Assistant Psychologist or Clinical Psychologist who will draw on a range of theoretical frameworks to support with issues such as trauma,  anxiety, depression and work related stress.
