Treatment tailored to your needs

Leading mental health treatment at The Priory Hospital, Woking

At Woking, we are able to provide world class treatment for a range of mental health conditions, delivered as part of personalised treatment plans. Each patient will have one of our world renowned experts allocated to them according to their own unique needs and requirements, ensuring that each individual receives the best possible care. We offer established treatment for the following conditions:

Anxiety
Anxiety is a broad term that encompasses several severe and persistent mental health disorders, typically characterised by excessive worry and fear. Anxiety can manifest in a number of ways and ultimately impacts on how an individual thinks, feels and behaves. Although anxiety and worry are relatively normal human emotions, experiencing these emotions for a prolonged period of time can result in a devastating anxiety disorder that is hugely detrimental to health and wellbeing. 

Depression
Depression is a serious mental health condition, characterised by persistent, often debilitating feelings of sadness. Whilst we can all feel ‘down’ and upset from time-to-time, people with a diagnosis of depression experience such devastating feelings of sadness that this affects how they think, behave, and function on a day-to-day basis.

Stress
Stress is experienced in response to extreme mental or emotional pressure, and is becoming increasingly common in today’s modern society. It is normal for everyone to experience stress on occasions, but it is important to identify when this is becoming more and more frequent, to the extent that it causes physical symptoms, emotional exhaustion, and becomes impossible to cope with.

We are also able to provide specialist treatment for:

  • Mood swings
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • 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 Woking

Our specialist team have a wealth of experience in employing a range of techniques in the treatment of mental health conditions. These include:

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a widely recognised and established treatment for a range of mental health conditions. It is based on the premise that mental health conditions are underpinned by a series of dysfunctional thought patterns which have a negative impact on behaviour. As such, CBT aims to challenge negative thought processes, promote an understanding of why they developed in the first place, and empower people to think of new and healthier ways to evaluate situations.

Interpersonal therapy (IPT)
Interpersonal therapy (IPT) is a form of psychotherapy, underpinned by the belief that mental health difficulties arise as a result of problems in our interpersonal relationships and how we interact with others. As such, IPT focuses on our network of interpersonal relationships, specifically how they may be contributing to mental health difficulties and vice versa.

Mindfulness
Mindfulness is a process by which individuals are empowered to focus their energy on how they feel in the present moment and learn how to process negative emotions without becoming overwhelmed by them.

Eye movement desensitisation and re-processing (EMDR)
Eye movement desensitisation and re-processing (EMDR) stimulates a patient’s brain by encouraging them to engage in rapid eye movements. EMDR teaches individuals to replace negative thought processes with more positive ones and is widely used in the treatment of PTSD.

1:1 therapy
1:1 therapy is a widely used treatment method for mental health conditions. This form of therapy takes place on an individual basis between a patient and a specialist, allowing for comprehensive exploration of a patient’s unique concerns.

Group therapy
Group therapy has been found to be highly effective in the treatment of a wide range of mental health conditions. This form of therapy takes place in a group setting, allowing patients to support and learn from one another, and offer feedback on different approaches to combating their mental health difficulties.

Family therapy
Family therapy allows patients and their families to engage in an open and honest dialogue about the patient’s mental health condition, encouraging a mutual understanding of this and proactive steps as to how family members can best support each other.

We have the capacity to assign highly experienced therapists in a way that is flexible around the needs of the individual.

We respond to all enquiries promptly and professionally, to ensure people get the best possible support when needed. An initial phone call can help determine the most appropriate treatment:

  • The call may be an informal discussion about the services we offer, and your needs
  • A more formal triage assessment could take place by one of our senior clinicians, to determine the level of treatment you may require
  • The call may lead to a recommendation for a consultant assessment, inpatient or outpatient treatment or day care
