The Cottage, located within the grounds of Life Works, is the UK’s most unique and exclusive private treatment centre, providing exceptional support for a wide range of conditions including addictions, depression, anxiety, executive stress and eating disorders. Set within a charming and idyllic Grade II listed house in the tranquil location of Old Woking, Surrey, The Cottage offers high-end, confidential therapy for each client who seeks help with us.

The Cottage at Life Works truly does become your home away from home, providing you with complete discretion and privacy, within a calm and relaxing sanctuary. Nowhere else in the UK offers such exceptional quality, luxury, and attention to detail, along with a focus on recovery and positive outcomes.

Our evidence-based treatment programmes, including our comprehensive family programme which has recently been rated as ‘outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), are led by world-renowned mental health experts, consisting of psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, mental health nurses and other highly qualified professionals. Our team work together seamlessly to ensure that our clients receive the very best therapy, in a highly supportive and compassionate environment. We believe that addictions, eating disorders and other mental health challenges require a comprehensive approach to treatment that not only focuses on an individual’s psychological difficulties, but also treats the physical, social and spiritual elements of each person. Therefore, all of our treatment programmes are individually tailored and person-centred, enabling us to look at each client as a whole person and deliver a truly bespoke package of care. This personalised and holistic approach, as well as our extensive aftercare planning, empowers you to take steps towards a strong and lasting recovery, and the healthy, happy and fulfilling life that you deserve.
