Priory Hospital Ticehurst House

Founded over 225 years ago, Priory Hospital Ticehurst House is a private mental health hospital set within 48 acres of beautiful landscaped gardens, in a small and tranquil village in East Sussex. Located just outside of Tunbridge Wells, our calm and reflective location allows us to provide a highly therapeutic environment, making us the perfect place for individuals to start their road to recovery. We can provide fast access to expert treatment for a range of mental health challenges, including depression, anxiety and stress, as well as outpatient support for eating disorders and addictions. Our closest inpatient eating disorder service is at Life Works. We provide residential treatment at Highlands and flexible private outpatient appointments at the Lodge Therapy Centre.

"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.
Thank you.”

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.

"I have completed the DBT programme at Ticehurst and found it to be hugely beneficial. The expertise and professionalism of my therapist, along with her empathetic approach within my one-to-one sessions has truly enriched my life. The DBT team is outstanding and they truly care.

"Day-by-day, my ability to manage life has improved. My therapist has helped me to find light within a very dark place. To anyone struggling and in need of help… The team at Ticehurst are making such a difference within the lives of so many, including mine.”
