Mental health disorders take many different forms, affecting the way you behave, feel and think. Undertaking mental health treatment and therapy can be confusing and overwhelming and we understand you may feel anxious, upset and fearful. We offer an extensive number of evidence based therapy treatments to help you address your problems and difficult feelings.
Mental health treatment
We have a holistic approach to helping people through specific mental health treatment, including group therapy, family therapy and individual therapy options. We have developed a unique physical health and wellbeing programme to support your overall health and wellbeing to complement our other therapy treatments.
We offer a wide range of evidence-based specialist treatments and therapies through outpatient, day patient and inpatient programmes for General Psychiatry, Addictions and Eating Disorders. Within a confidential and safe environment we provide specifically tailored treatment programmes. These are underpinned by the understanding that every person is unique and faces their own challenges.
Conditions we treat
Mental health problem can affect anyone. Around one in four people in Britain suffer from mental health issue, and range from common mental health problems, such as depression and anxiety, to more rare problems such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
Addiction is defined as not having control over doing, taking or using something to the point where it could be harmful to you physically and psychologically. The addictive behaviour or substance over stimulates the reward pathways in the brain resulting in pleasure and critically avoiding negative emotions. The brain function of self-regulation is diminished and control becomes almost impossible. An addiction can rapidly impact an individual’s health, relationships, finances and cause social and legal problems.
Eating Disorders are abnormal eating habits associated with psychological factors. Individuals are so preoccupied with food and weight that they can focus on little else. Insufficient or excessive food intake leads to the detriment of the individual’s physical and mental health that can have life-threatening consequences.
Aftercare and on-going support
