The Group Therapy Centre

Cambridgeshire’s leading not-for-profit group-psychological treatment service. We’re a charity commissioned by Cambridge & Peterborough NHS to provide group therapy in Cambridgeshire. We offer therapy for local people experiencing emotional and mental health worries.

At the Group Therapy Centre we strive to provide an inclusive environment and we stand against racism or discrimination in any form.  Whilst the nature of group therapy means we will engage in and explore difficult conversations and subjects with different points of view, we will not tolerate racism, abuse or discrimination of any kind.

Please come and see one of our therapists for a free initial consultation. You can refer yourself or ask your GP or another health professional to make a referral on your behalf.

Covid-19 Update

We are pleased to say that during these challenging times we have been able to continue running all of our long term psychotherapy groups, by moving them online.  Although this was an adjustment for the therapists and the group members, the transition has been successful and all of our groups will continue to run online until it is safe to return to face to face meetings.  After a brief break, we have continued to accept new referrals and have been undertaking assessment sessions online or over the telephone.  In specific response to the Covid-19 outbreak, and the subsequent lock down, we set up a number of new online ‘Alone Together’ support groups, which continue to run, and in due course our CBT programme will resume online as well. If you are looking for long term psychotherapy, CBT or more general support, please contact us to arrange an initial assessment session.

LIFE CAN BE TOUGH

Life can be tough when you’re feeling low, anxious, isolated or disempowered. The experience can be distressing for you. It can also be difficult for the people around you, who naturally will be worried too. Getting effective help and support, at an affordable cost, is often essential to help you feel well.

The Group Therapy Centre is a long-established psychological treatment service, offering group therapy in Cambridgeshire. We provide short and long-term group therapy for a wide variety of conditions.

WHAT IS GROUP THERAPY?

Joining a small therapy group gives us the opportunity to work with people who are also experiencing difficulties and want to make changes to their lives. The therapist helps the group by providing a safe, confidential and supportive setting to address difficulties.

Our groups meet weekly for an hour-and-a-half. During which, you get to know and trust fellow group members. The group works together to think about problems, which is key, so you will not have to try to solve everything on your own.

NEW ‘ALONE TOGETHER’ SUPPORT GROUPS

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic we have set up a number of online ‘Alone Together’ support groups to help people during this challenging time.  Although these aren’t therapy groups as such, the group therapists will allow you space to reflect on your experiences and will introduce interventions if they feel they would be useful. The support groups offer the chance to gain back some kind of community and connection with other individuals.

We have a number of support groups running at different times, so please do get in touch if you are interested in joining a group.
