What is a Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner (PWP)?

Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners (PWPs) are trained to carry out assessment and offer low intensity interventions. They have completed a year of specific training and supervised experience to qualify for the role. They may be based in a GP surgery, or in other settings. They use brief, cognitive behavioural therapy-informed approaches to help people with their mental health. They may also help people to engage with other services that will help them in their recovery. They work with adults who have anxiety and depression, and are based in the NHS, in third sector or other organisations such as those commissioned by the NHS to provide these services. If they are on our Register they have shown that they meet high standards of training and clinical work, and they work in a service that meets NHS expectations.
