Priory Hospital Romiley, located in Cheshire, is a 10-bedded, locked rehabilitation and recovery service for females of working age. We support those who have a primary diagnosis of psychosis and/or affective disorders who may also have co-morbidities including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), substance misuse issues, physical health difficulties and emotionally unstable personality disorder.
Our primary purpose is to support patients to develop confidence, skills and independence whilst managing their mental health symptoms, in order to achieve a life worth living in the community or the least restrictive alternative.
We use a recovery-based model of care which recognises the seven principles of recovery:
- A secure base
- A sense of self
- Supportive relationships
- Empowerment and inclusion
- Coping strategies
Our service is patient-centred, comprehensive and collaborative and focuses on achieving realistic goals and ensuring an effective pathway to the community.
Our structured programme of group psychotherapy includes:
- Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT)
- Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT)
- Evidence-based treatment for personality disorders and mental health disorders
Psychological therapy groups address:
- Mental health awareness
- Risk management
- Goal setting
- Relapse prevention
- Transition to the community
