    Cygnet Health Care has been providing a national network of high quality specialist mental health services for 30 years.

     

    At Cygnet Alders Clinic we provide a specialist psychologically informed personality disorder pathway across three living areas; Severn, for assessment and stabilisation; Avon, where residents move as they engage and progress with their treatment pathway; and Coln, which focuses on transitioning to the community.

    We adopt an integrated modular approach to treatment for women with a diagnosis of personality disorder, accounting for diagnostic differences, NICE guidelines and the work of Livesley (2004). With a focus on interpersonal relationships, we use individual formulation to deliver a personalised and integrated combination of psychotherapeutic and pharmacological interventions. These can include:

    DBT-informed Therapy
    Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
    Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT)
    Mentalisation Based Therapy (MBT)
    Schema Therapy

    Our aim is to address the core features of personality disorder: emotional regulation, interpersonal functioning, and self-identity and to prepare the women in our care for a transition to life back in the community

    Alders is rated ‘Good’ by the CQC.
