"Group therapy was fantastic – surpassed expectations by a long way. I began with fear and reluctance and found out how helpful talking in a group is, particularly when led by professionals who understood the circumstances of each individual. I’ve never had help like this, I felt I could be honest and not judged. I commend the sensitivity and respect each staff member showed to everyone. I have never experienced such professional whole person care.

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy Programme
Priory Hospital Ticehurst House’s Dialectical Behaviour Therapy Programme provides a treatment currently considered best practice in helping people who use problematic and sometimes life-threatening behaviours as a way of coping with intense and unstable emotions e.g. self-harm or other impulsive behaviours such as substance abuse.
DBT is a skills-based therapy, offering more practical and effective coping techniques. It requires a strong commitment to therapy and includes an emphasis on acceptance of the person as they are, combined with the expectation that current unhelpful behaviours need to be changed.
Completion of the programme can lead to improved self-awareness, management of emotions and improve the quality of relationships to create a life worth living.
There is a free initial suitability assessment for anyone who would like to consider the programme.
