The Retreat

We’re a York-based mental health and wellbeing provider, supporting people who would benefit from expert therapy, assessment or support to improve their lives. We specialise in tailored care which is personalised and effective, providing:

  • Psychological assessment and therapy services locally, regionally and nationally
  • Neurodevelopmental assessment and therapy services for adults, children and young people, especially for Autism and ADHD

Our mission

To deliver high quality, sustainable, renowned mental health and wellbeing services, alongside Autism and ADHD services, helping people to live well with themselves so that we all live better together.

As an independent charity, we provide care to people who refer themselves and those who are referred to us by GPs and other professionals. We can often help when others can’t, enabling people to get their lives back on track.

Our organisation has its roots in York’s Quaker community and we do our best to sustain our Quaker history and heritage. 

Why us?

We have a reputation for excellence and over 200 years’ experience.

Our services are run by a team of highly experienced and professionally accredited staff who seek to reflect the tolerance, humanity and values of our Quaker roots.

We provide tailored care which is personalised and effective, and we’ve harnessed emerging technology to provide online consultations.

What do we offer?

We offer a range of individual, couples and group therapies in line with National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidance. All of our therapists are highly trained, accredited, experienced and committed to continuing professional development. Many therapists have training in more than one therapeutic modality, and are therefore in the best position to offer tailored, individualised therapy to meet your needs, drawing from the most up to date, evidence-based interventions.

Our therapies can be delivered face to face, in relaxing therapy rooms. However if you are unable to come to The Retreat for your appointments, whatever the reason, we can offer you an appointment via video link, using a secure platform called 3CX.
