For our members at the Charcot Therapy Centre we offer access to various different therapies at a subsidised rate. These are provided by a fantastic group of self-employed therapists who visit the centre with dedicated appointment times throughout the week. They are fully qualified in their field, fully insured and DBS checked.
All appointments are made and / or cancelled directly with the therapists. All therapies are subject to a cancellation fee should they be missed or cancelled at very short notice.
Where applicable, the therapist is paid directly. If it is a service provided by the centre a donation is kindly requested to help contribute to the running cost of the centre.
If you have any questions please contact us for further information.

Talking Therapy, CBT
Talking therapies involve talking to a trained professional about your thoughts, feelings and behaviour. There are many different types of talking therapy, but they all aim to give you a safe time and place to talk to someone who won’t judge you. This can help individuals manage and cope with stress, depression and anxiety. This type of talking therapy incorporates various techniques, including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) to help.
Talking therapy at the Charcot is undertaken on a one-to-one basis.
Through research with those who care for others, and those who receive help from, in particular, unpaid carers, we have identified areas where we can provide help and support.
The goal is to support and acknowledge all the hard working carers of our members who are at times overlooked. We aim to offer various different courses and support.
We are delighted to have various workshops throughout the month which include (but not limited to) Alexander Technique, Fun with Art and Gong Bath. These vary weekly / monthly. Please see our social media pages or contact us for the latest schedule.
