Priory Hospital Chelmsford

Priory Hospital Chelmsford, located just outside London, is set within a beautiful Grade II listed, 19th century building, complete with three acres of private gardens. The hospital first opened in 1992 and since then, has established an excellent reputation for providing fast access to high quality treatment for a diverse range of mental health difficulties including addictions, anxiety, depression and stress. We are also able to provide high quality therapy to individuals struggling with gender issues, low self-esteem, and those struggling with a diagnosis of personality disorder. Chelmsford is one of the UK’s leading treatment centres and is rated by former patients for its excellence, dedication, commitment to individuals, as well as producing outstanding treatment outcomes.

Our evidence-based interventions at Chelmsford are in-keeping with best practice in the field of mental health and addictions, and are developed by an expert team of psychiatrists, mental health nurses, psychologists and therapists. Our treatment programmes are tailored to your individual needs and structured within National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines.

Our specialists are committed to empowering you to tackle your mental health conditions, improve your physical and psychological wellbeing, and return to the healthy and fulfilling life that you deserve.

How to find us

Priory Hospital Chelmsford is located just outside of Chelmsford town centre. We are 6-7 minute drive from the town centre or a 25-minute walk.

If you’re travelling from further afield, the train station is a 24 minute walk away and the bus station is approximately a 25 minute walk away. The 54 or 56 bus from the town centre will bring you nearby the hospital within 20 minutes.

From the surrounding areas, such as Basildon, Colchester, Burnham on Crouch and Billericay, buses and trains are available. There are some direct routes available, although some trains require changes at Shenfield.

It is important to understand that addictions and other mental health challenges are treatable, and the most crucial first step is for you to seek expert support. Unfortunately, without specialist, professional help, these complex conditions can continue to worsen over time, and have a destructive impact on your quality of life. At Priory Hospital Chelmsford, excellent patient care is our primary concern and we are committed to ensuring that you are supported in your recovery journey in regaining a life meaningful to you.

Part of our specialist provision at Chelmsford is The Stables Therapy Centre where we provide individual therapy using a variety of modalities that are consistent with NICE guidelines, for therapeutic interventions.  We also provide an extensive group programme that includes some of the following:

  • Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) for anxiety or depression
  • Stress management group therapy
  • Self-esteem group therapy
  • Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) informed skills training programme
  • Individual Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS) assessments

Referrals to our day hospital are either via a consultant -psychiatrist or self-referral, usually via a GP. We are able to provide treatment to adults and young people over the age of 10. 

All our therapists are either accredited or working towards accreditation with a recognised regulatory body such as the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP).
