The RCA has been established since 1990, and continues to be committed to offering low cost and affordable therapy within the community of Brighton, Hove and Sussex.

The Rock has two sites across the city:

Both Clinics have facilities for individual psychological and physical therapy, with space for group work.  There is full disabled access at Rock West and good disabled access at Rock East.   

Both Clinics are in operation during the week from 8am - 9pm Monday to Friday and on Saturday from 9am - 5pm.  For details of our reception hours, please see our Contacts page.  Please note that we are closed on public Bank Holidays and between Christmas and New Year.
