iCope: the Camden and Islington Psychological Therapies Service offers treatment for a range of psychological problems, including anxiety and depression.
We are based in GP surgeries and community settings. The service is for adults registered with a Camden or Islington GP, or people who are resident in these boroughs but do not have a GP.
The staff members in iCope are all trained to a high standard to deliver evidence-based psychological therapies. Staff are either Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners or Psychological Therapists. They have professional codes of conduct and are accountable to their professional bodies. All therapists receive regular supervision.
We also have a partner organisation in Islington called Growing Together – a service treating parental anxiety and depression where it is impacting on children’s wellbeing too. This service sits within the Islington Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service part of Whittington Health NHS Trust.
