Working with GPs and Referrers

The Retreat has worked closely with GPs and the NHS for over 25 years, providing psychological therapies, diagnostic assessments and support for continuous professional development.

We are here for you

We recognise that GPs are stretched in meeting the mental health needs of their patients now more than ever. At The Retreat, we have successfully delivered projects for local GP’s to provide outsourced primary care mental health treatment support services.  Such projects have been funded by and collaboratively delivered with local CCG’s.

If you feel there is a need within your service / GP Practice/ Federation and would like to discuss further please get in touch by emailing

Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

We are passionate about sharing our expert mental health knowledge with ​General Practitioners and Allied Health Professions and therefore offer a wide range of CPD presentations.  These are delivered by our Clinicians and our Experts by Experience. 

Here is some feedback from previous events:

  • “I think you could tell that we were all really interested in Rose Anne and Kim’s talks. Rose Anne was an admirable young lady and really engaging. Hearing her story was one of my best professional encounters recently!”
  • “Extremely useful, patients do better if diagnosed and treated early / interesting useful insight”
  • “Engaging, and thought provoking. Would be interested to hear more topics from The Retreat”


If your practice would benefit from mental health educational training sessions please contact to discuss your requirements.  We can offer these services on-line too!
