Frequently asked questions

We know that coming to a session like this for the first time can be quite daunting and you’ll have lots of questions about what to expect.  

Below is a list of some of the most common questions we are asked and some answers to help put your mind at ease. 

If you have filled in a self-referral form or booked over the phone you will be offered an assessment call with one of the course facilitators. 

You will receive a link via a text message to choose a day and time that works best for you for your assessment.  

During the call you will be asked some questions to help us make sure that the course is the right one for you. You will have an opportunity to ask any questions you have.  

Please note you will receive this call from a withheld number.  

Two days before each course session you will receive a text or an email (depending on your preference) with a set of questionnaires. The text will be sent from ‘SHEFF IAPT’, and the email will be sent from please add this to your contacts so the email doesn’t get lost in your spam.  

These questionnaires will ask you about depression and anxiety, and what symptoms you have noticed over the last two weeks. It is really helpful to complete them each week, as they allow both you and us to keep a track of any improvements in your mood. 

In the week before your course is due to start you will receive an email from our administration team. The email will provide you with a link to the meeting, instructions on how to join it and a downloadable copy of your workbook.  

This email will come from, please add this to your contacts so the email doesn’t get lost in your spam. 

We hope you will find the course helpful, but sometimes it can take time to put the techniques into practice and notice improvements in your mood. We would encourage you to keep using the techniques in your workbook and give yourself a chance to practice them after the course. 

We will contact you if you are still struggling with symptoms of depression or anxiety to see if our service can offer any further treatment or recommend any other services to help support to you.  

If you did not attend the whole course we may also contact you to check in. 

Your telephone review will be booked with a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner and will give you a chance to discuss the course, give you an opportunity to ask any questions and discuss further options for treatment.
