Located in a secluded part of Southgate, Priory Hospital North London specialises in providing expert treatment for a number of mental health conditions. In partnership with the NHS, we offer a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS), a 14-bedded acute ward, as well as care and support for patients who suffer from obsessive compulsive disorders (OCD) and body dysmorphic disorder (BDD).

Treatment through the NHS can only be arranged by public bodies, such as mental health trusts and clinical commissioners. If you would like to know more about the process for accessing treatment on the NHS, your first port of call will be to speak to your GP.

Priory’s private services can be accessed via self-pay, and you may also be able to also access treatment through private medical insurance. For more information, please visit our dedicated private page

Specialist service for OCD and BDD treatment

Our approach

The programme is designed to maximise understanding of these mental health conditions and to promote engagement in the early stages of treatment.

Inpatients receive:

  • Up to 3 individual sessions of CBT with their key therapist

Therapy may be combined with medication such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), clomipramine or augmentation to help support CBT and develop more positive outcomes.
