Conditions We Treat
Clients come to us with a wide range of different conditions, and many with multiple issues.
From alcohol, substance misuse (either illegal drugs or prescription medications), gambling, pornography, internet or shopping addiction, eating disorders, anxiety, depression or even workplace burnout.
Often, clients will present with 2 or even more co-occuring conditions. This is quite normal and will be treated as part of the programme.
The programme runs 6 days a week (Saturdays are rest days) – and includes a wide range of different treatment modalities, designed to achieve the greatest transformational effect in the shortest time possible.
In this way, our hugely successful programme can be completed extremely quickly. Each individual is different – and longer stays are, of course, available for those who need it. The menu to the right gives a glossary of some of our principal treatment modalities (although, we have many options for further individualising the programme, where needed.) Following treatment, our aftercare programme continues – providing ongoing support, relapse prevention and guidance.
Programmes are tailored, but as a guide, a the following shows a typical weekday at Bayberry Cottages might include:
- 8.00am – Breakfast
- 8.30am – Mindfulness meditation
- 8.45am – Personal care

Our Treatment Modalities Explained
A One to One session lasts anywhere from an hour upwards – depending on what is needed. It 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.
Addiction affects everyone – partners, children, parents and siblings. Our programme supports and incorporates family members to repair broken relationships and strengthen a future together.
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 – or may wonder if you even have an addiction or disorder. This is the time to call and speak to our admissions manager. She will listen to your situation and will offer her 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 safe, 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.
We are sensitive to individual needs and will accommodate special diets, different abilities or any other individual requirements wherever we possibly can.
Our Private Clinics
As private clinics, you can access our services immediately without waiting for an NHS referral. Many clients will be admitted the same day, if needed, and we offer admissions 7 days a week.
Our fees start at very competitive rates and include accommodation, all food and drinks and full, therapeutic programme. Depending on the accommodation you prefer, we can also offer upgraded options including private rooms, en suites and feature rooms.
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 ANP, GP or Psychiatrist will carry out a medical assessment. For some, detox is needed and medication is prescribed. For others, it’s a chance to assess general health and to monitor overall wellbeing.
During detox, you’ll get lots of rest. The programme starts within a few days, once you feel more able to participate.
Every person is different – but addictions and disorders 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, you get well, you stay well, you rebuild broken relationships, you have a hope for the future.
