Conditions We Treat
Clients come to us with a wide range of different conditions, and many with multiple issues.
Sometimes clients may describe their challenges – it could be anxiety, depression, panic, low mood, trauma, problematic drinking, substance use, misuse of prescription medications, gambling, phobias, OCD, problematic sex related issues, stress or burnout.
But just as often, clients may describe a feeling – a sense of fear, dread, that something is not right, that they don’t want to feel this way, that they feel ‘outside’ themselves, as if they are in a dream, as if the world is unreal; a sense that something is not ‘right’ but struggling to know how or why. This can be compounded by questions from concerned family or friends, such as, ‘what are you anxious about?’ …because the reason for the unease of these feelings is that often they don’t relate to anything discernible – making the feelings all the more frightening, unpleasant, demotivating or challenging.
Often, clients may present with multiple more co-occuring condition….finding it difficult to pinpoint just one feeling or issue.
The programme includes a wide range of different treatment modalities, designed to achieve the greatest transformational effect in the shortest time possible.
The menu to the right gives a glossary of some of our principle treatment modalities (although, we have many options for further individualising the programme, where needed.) Following treatment, our long term aftercare programme continues – providing ongoing support, and guidance.
Our Treatment Modalities Explained
This takes place privately, with only you and the therapist present. The therapist will listen, and will also encourage you along a journey of acceptance, sharing, describing and processing information. One to One sessions are part of the overall recovery – many different dimensions are used to facilitate transformation.
Group Sessions take place within a small gathering of between 2 and 9 people, together with 1 or 2 therapists. Your peers are those with whom you are sharing the experience…other clients who are in the clinic with you.
A focussed, guided mindfulness based cognitive therapy, that raises self-awareness and facilitates recovery.
An extremely effective therapy for trauma, that helps with the processing of distressing memories.
An excellent therapeutic model for learning new behaviours and reinforcing positive mood states.
First things first
You can be admitted to Bayberry by self-referral, by your GP, by a therapist or with the help of a family member or friend. The important thing is to make the initial call to get help. You can call us 7 days a week and we offer admissions every single day.
You may not be sure if residential treatment is right for you. This is the time to call and speak to our admissions‘ manager. She will listen to your situation and will offer expert advice, over the phone, with no charge.
You are welcome to come and visit us (and to bring along a family member or friend) – to see what our facilities are like and to meet our team. Feeling comfortable and supported are of utmost importance in ensuring that you get the most from your experience here – and we will do everything we can to ensure we make you quickly feel at home.
Our Private Clinics
As private clinics, you can access our services immediately without waiting for an NHS referral. Admissions can often be expedited if needed, and we offer admissions usually within as little as 24 hours subject to availability.
Our fees start at very competitive rates – and include accommodation, all food and drinks and therapeutic programme.
This is all new – it could be daunting, emotional – or any one or all of a whole range of emotions. Our caring team will quickly make you feel comfortable and secure – and will reassure family members of the ongoing process.
When you arrive, we normally make you a drink and have a short chat -during which we will explain the process to you and your family member or friend, if someone is with you. We’ll get you settled into your room and show you where everything is.
If you’re feeling up to it, we’ll introduce you to some people who will be sharing the experience with you – and that will also be a great support to you through the journey.
Soon after admission, our GP or Psychiatrist will carry out a medical assessment. For some, detox may be needed or medication may be offered. For others, it’s a chance to assess general health and to monitor overall wellbeing.
Every person is different – but mental health challenges have many shared root causes. For this reason, the therapeutic environment is highly successful, even if those with whom you share the journey do not have exactly the same issues. You do, however, share a common goal – to achieve a state of recovery in which you regain control of your life, make positive changes, redevelop and engage with hope and excitement for the future, and start to rebuild relationships, with self, with others and with the wider world.
