WITH OUR HELP YOU COULD FEEL BETTER
We currently run a short-term Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) group programme, and longer-term groups based on group analysis, psychotherapy and schema-focused therapy.
The CBT groups run for either eight or thirteen weeks and help you to deal with symptoms you are currently experiencing.
The therapist will take you through a course, looking at specific areas of life each week, to help you understand what is going on and find practical ways of dealing with problematic thoughts and behaviours.
In the longer-term groups, we have the time to look at quite deep-seated difficulties so that you can experience fundamental changes that will be of use to you. These sessions have no formal agenda. People are encouraged to talk about their concerns when they feel ready and to respond to each other as honestly as possible. Participants stay for as long as they need.
In all our modalities, the groups meet for one-and-a-half hours each week, with up to eight people in each group plus the therapist. When you come for your first one-to-one consultation, you can think more about what kind of group would suit you best.
WE ARE EXPANDING
We have been operating successfully in Cambridge since 1969, when we grew out of innovations developed at Fulbourn Hospital that were followed by health professionals worldwide. Our clinical team consists of highly qualified professionals with many years’ experience between them.
In 2016 we opened groups in Huntingdon and Ely for the first time. We are committed to providing a first class service that is available to as many people in the county of Cambridgeshire that we can reach.
IN THE FIRST INSTANCE
CONTACT OUR CAMBRIDGE OFFICE:
Each week over 130 people of a wide range of ages and backgrounds attend our day and evening groups.
We also work with other agencies, in order to give our members the best service possible.
AND THE COST?
The CBT groups are free of charge. With the long-term groups, we ask people to make a contribution to their therapy according to a sliding scale of fees, which will be discussed with you and based on your financial situation. We do not means test. The aim is for our therapy to be affordable for everyone.
