    The last 15 years have seen the biggest expansion in UK history in the number of “talking therapists” currently trained and practicing in the UK. And yet we continue to face a growing tsunami of psychological distress at levels never before seen. Is this a hidden problem that’s just become visible? Is it the product of our modern society accelerated by COVID and lockdown? Is it simply that “talking therapies” don’t work? Come along for the debate and get ready to have your assumptions challenged.
