What is FAST?


Focussed – you will focus on one specific issue


Action – you will create an action plan with your
therapist to take away from the session


Soon – you will be offered an appointment soon


Treatment – you can go on for further treatment, if appropriate

The benefits

This means we can offer you a FAST session very quickly, usually in the next week.

The aim is to help you get as much as possible in a single FAST session with the understanding that more help is available if needed.

In the session your therapist would help you focus on the issue that you are most bothered about and encourage you to address it effectively.

What does this mean for you?

Your role is to come to the session being prepared to focus on that one issue and work with them to see if you and they can come up with a meaningful solution that you can take forward into your own life.

The goal of the session is to help you to take the first steps towards doing this rather than solving the problem in its entirety.

We will follow up this session with a short phone review usually in about 4 weeks time.

At that time, you may say that you have had all the help you need at this stage, or you might ask to get treatment from TalkPlus therapists in the usual manner, in which case it would be made available to you.
You can find out more about the FAST pathway which is based on Single Session Therapy by watching this short video.

The FAST pathway can help with a range of issues, including low mood, anxiety, relationship issues and situational concerns. It is not intended for those in crisis.
