The Retreat is expanding its offer of mental health and neurodevelopmental services in York to a warm and welcoming location in Manchester.

Hampden House has been offering high quality psychological assessment and therapies in Manchester for over two decades. The building was purchased by The Retreat in April 2021 and it will be known as The Retreat Manchester at Hampden House. Many of Hampden House’s skilled and experienced therapists will be continuing to offer their high-quality services there, on behalf of The Retreat.

Speaking about the new venture, Dr Kim Bevan, The Retreat’s Chief Officer for Clinical Services, said:

“Hampden House is a lovely Victorian building in Manchester, and we’re delighted to welcome therapists and clients to The Retreat family. We are very excited about continuing to deliver much-needed mental health support and therapeutic services in a new location for The Retreat. We know that demand will increase due to the after-effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdowns and we’re privileged to be in a position to offer mental health services across sites, in York, in Manchester, and Nationally with our online psychological therapy and assessment services. We are looking forward to growing and developing a full range of psychological therapy and neurodevelopmental services for children, young people and adults at The Retreat Manchester at Hampden House.”

People who use Hampden House for their therapy currently will notice some differences, including some improvements to the building and changes to administration of appointments and payments. Developments are also underway for the website, which will be updated and improved. The Retreat Manchester at Hampden House plans to continue to offer online and telephone appointments, with face-to-face appointments scheduled to restart in May 2021.
