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.

So, 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.



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.



Joining a small therapy group gives us the opportunity to work with people who, like us, are experiencing difficulties. Also, with those who want to make changes to their lives. The therapist helps the group to provide 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. As well as this, the group works together to think about problems, is key. So you will not have to try to solve everything on your own.



Our group therapy in Cambridgeshire supports many people. We currently run short-term Cognitive Behavioural Therapy groups. Additionally, we run longer-term analytical, psychotherapy and schema-based groups. Our clinicians have the expertise to help many people experiencing difficulties such as:

  • Social isolation
  • Low self-esteem
  • Relationship problems
  • Problems at work
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Trauma
  • Abuse
