Treatment tailored to your needs

World class mental health treatment at The Priory Hospital Roehampton

At Roehampton, our experts have a wealth of experience in treating a wide array of mental health conditions. We are able to offer comprehensive and individually tailored treatment programmes in order to address the source and symptoms of your mental health issues, enabling you to improve your wellbeing and regain control of your life. We are able to offer world class treatment for the following conditions:

Depression
Depression is an increasingly common mental health condition, characterised by acute and overwhelming feelings of sadness. Depression can have a hugely detrimental impact on a person’s physical and emotional health as well as how they act and feel. Whilst it is normal for everyone to feel sad on occasions, individuals suffering from depression experience such crushing low moods that they are unable to function.

Anxiety
Anxiety disorders are chronic and often persistent mental health conditions that can negatively affect an individual’s wellbeing and their ability to function effectively. Anxiety and worry are natural, and sometimes useful, human emotions but when these are heightened for a prolonged period of time, they can lead to a debilitating anxiety disorder. Anxiety can manifest in a variety of ways and often requires professional help to overcome.

Stress
Stress occurs as a response to adverse mental or emotional strain. Whilst we can all experience stress from time-to-time, it is important to recognise when levels of stress are increasing to the point that it becomes difficult to cope with and causes both physical symptoms and emotional exhaustion.

Our Roehampton specialists are also able to provide expert treatment for:

  • Mood swings
  • Eating disorders
  • Anger management
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Panic attacks
  • Relationship problems
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Sleep problems

Mental health treatment at Roehampton

We employ a wide range of tried and tested techniques for treating mental health conditions at Roehampton, including:

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that is widely used in the treatment of a number of mental health conditions. CBT is based on the principle that mental health problems arise as a result of dysfunctional thought patterns. Therefore, the aim of CBT is to challenge these negative thought patterns, explore the reasons that they developed in the first place, and equip individuals with the skills to view and evaluate problems in new and healthier ways.

Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT)
Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) is based on the principles of CBT but has been deliberately tailored to help individuals suffering from intense and destructive emotions. DBT is focused on enabling the individual to accept themselves in order to reduce distressing emotions and return to a healthier way of life.

Cognitive analytic therapy (CAT)
Cognitive analytic therapy (CAT) is a type of psychotherapy that brings together elements of CBT as well as other psychoanalytic approaches. CAT examines how individuals think, act and feel as a result of past experiences, before encouraging them to problem solve and develop new ways of coping.

Emotion focused therapy (EFT)
Emotion focused therapy (EFT) focuses on an individual’s emotions and aims to increase emotional understanding, expression, regulation and awareness. By encouraging individuals to engage more with their emotions and different emotional states, EFT enables people to become better at using healthy emotions and decrease the negative effects of unhealthy emotions.

Mindfulness
Mindfulness equips individuals with the skills to focus on how they feel in the present moment, whilst accepting and processing negative feelings without becoming overwhelmed by them.

Eye movement desensitisation and re-processing (EMDR) 
Eye movement desensitisation and re-processing (EMDR) uses eye movements to stimulate a patient’s brain in order to reduce the intensity of distressing memories. During EMDR, individuals are encouraged to replace negative thoughts with more positive ones.

1:1 therapy
1:1 therapy is used in the treatment of numerous mental health conditions and consists of therapy sessions that take place between a patient and the most appropriate specialist for their needs, on an individual basis.

Group therapy
Group therapy is a therapeutic process that takes place in a group setting. Groups are made up of patients who are experiencing similar mental health problems or who have similar diagnoses. Group therapy encourages patients to share experiences, offer guidance and insight, and learn from each other in a compassionate and supportive environment.

Family therapy
Like group therapy, family therapy takes place as part of group, but this consists of the patient and their immediate family or loved ones. Family therapy aims to encourage a mutual understanding of the patient’s mental health condition and facilitate a healthy dialogue in order to explore family dynamics and relationships.
