About Us

Whoever we are, whatever we do... We all need a hand sometimes.​

Nationwide mental health and wellbeing services from Essex, London and Cambridgeshire

Atrium’s renowned services have been delivering positive wellbeing outcomes with clients for 25 years originally from Essex (head office),Cambridgeshire and London for face-to-face services and across the UK for our virtual services.

Atrium was founded in 1999 by a group of clinicians, including Dr Paul Husselbee who remains company chairman. One of Atrium’s core strengths has always been its clinical foundations which form the basis for all of our therapeutic services. We are a training placement provider for Masters level therapists and doctorate level psychologists.

Paul set up Atrium after recognising his patients need for more support with their mental health. Many were suffering from anxiety and low mood, were overwhelmed by the challenges of family and care roles, work problems, illness or bereavement, or were struggling to adjust to changed circumstances.

We know that many of you are still suffering with worries and wellbeing problems that stop you living the life you want to. We support you through our  coaching and therapy services to feel better about yourself and your life. We provide evidence-based interventions which fit your requirements. You can see all additional areas of work in the footer section below.

Dr. Paul Husselbee is the founder and chair of Atrium Clinic, a GP by background and a pioneer in wellbeing in primary care.
