Who is our specialised mental health treatment programme in London helpful for?

Our highly specialised mental health treatment programme for adults offers a range of therapeutic treatments for adults experiencing conditions such as depression, anxiety, panic attacks, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), stress, low mood, emotional trauma, low self-esteem or bipolar disorder.


This specialised programme can also be used to help those going through grief or bereavement.

Our specialised treatment programme for mental health problems like depression, anxiety and other common mood disorders is designed to help those who require a more comprehensive, structured approach to therapy. If you’re already having individual therapy but wish to make further or faster progress, our programme might be suitable for you.

On the other hand, you may want to attend our specialised treatment programme as an alternative to inpatient admission. Or, you may be 'stepping down' from an inpatient admission and need additional support to manage this transition.


Whether you’re searching for effective cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) treatment or looking for private outpatient treatment for your mental health problem, we’re here to help.


To get you on the road to recovery, the first step is getting in touch with our team. We’ll discuss the best options for you, with you.


To get started with private treatment, simply fill out our online pre-screening questionnaire any time to suit you.

  • A bright, contemporary setting

What can I expect from attending the mental health treatment programme?

At Schoen Clinic Chelsea, we offer a comprehensive treatment programme for adults comprised of various individual and group therapies. The mental health programme is designed for people with a range of difficulties with mood, anxiety or other mental health conditions.


You might have difficulties with low mood, lack of interest or motivation, or you may have persistent worries. You might have been given a diagnosis such as depression, OCD or social anxiety.

You might already be engaged in one-to-one therapy and feel that a more intense approach added into that would be helpful for you to progress further and faster with your recovery.


Our team cater for people with a wide range of experiences and difficulties who are looking for a more comprehensive approach to mental health treatment.

In starting the mental health treatment programme for adults you can expect to be offered a range of therapy groups to assist in your recovery. We have therapy groups that are open spaces to talk about and explore your difficulties, experiences and emotions. We also provide a range of more practical skills-based groups where you can learn tools and skills to help you manage specific difficulties.


Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), schema therapy, mindfulness, compassionate mind, and assertiveness are a few examples of groups you can expect on the programme.


If you would like to find out more about the programme, you can email us or you can call 0203 146 2300 and speak to a member of the team. We offer a brief no-obligation triage and you can find out whether the programme will be a good fit for you.


If the treatment requires approval from a healthcare insurance provider, we’re recognised by all the major insurers and can liaise directly with them to smooth the administrative process to minimise any delays.

Our specialised approach for mental health treatment

We understand that each person who enters our Chelsea clinic is coping with mental health concerns in their own unique way. That’s why our specialised mental health treatment is tailored to the individual needs of our patients and their families.


For many people with mental health problems like anxiety, depression or OCD, treatments that are more comprehensive than individual therapy are needed to make a full recovery. To help you reach your life goals and make life changes, we’ve devised our very own outpatient mental health treatment programme for those experiencing some of the most common mental health problems.


Our specialised treatment programme is made up of a range of specialist therapeutic treatment groups, combined with individual therapy and advanced medication management if required.

Patient testimonial

"After struggling with long-term mental health problems, I severely deteriorated. It was difficult to find holistic and timely mental health treatment when I needed it most.


Luckily, I found the team at the Schoen Clinic who offered access to a well-rounded and intensive treatment programme within days. The programme is an invaluable investment in time that provides access to a variety of theoretical and practical therapies in a guided group and one-to-one setting.


Through the clinic’s group, one-to-one and psychiatric treatment, the team were able to provide me with personalised support and tools to help me change my outlook and improve my quality of life. Thank you so much.

What are the different types of therapy during specialised mental health treatment?

Integrative Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) at Schoen Clinic Chelsea is an immersive group therapy experience focused on identifying and overcoming the obstacles that impede emotional and mental growth. This evidence-based group provides a supportive and collaborative environment for individuals with mental health conditions to learn effective strategies for change and gain a new perspective on their emotional patterns.


Overview: Integrative Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a specialised group that combines a diverse range of evidence-based principles to address the challenges that hinder personal growth. Through this integrative approach, participants will identify the foundations of their emotional obstacles and learn how to break free from patterns that limit their well-being and potential.


Key Objectives:

  1. Identifying Obstacles: This group therapy session focuses on helping individuals recognise and understand the obstacles that hinder their emotional and mental progress. These barriers may arise from fear of the unknown, existential anxieties, constant self-criticism, or other deeply rooted patterns that colour their outlook on themselves, the world, and the future.

  2. Utilising Evidence-Based Principles: Participants will be introduced to a combined range of evidence-based principles from Cognitive Therapy and Behavioural Therapy. These proven techniques will empower them to confront and transform negative thought patterns, emotions, and behaviours that perpetuate obstacles in their lives.

  3. Embracing Change: By gaining insight into their emotional and mental obstacles, participants take the crucial first step towards change and personal growth. Integrative CBT equips them with the tools to navigate these challenges and move towards a healthier and more balanced emotional landscape.


Session Structure:

  1. Group Exploration: Each session begins with group discussions where participants have the opportunity to share their experiences and challenges. Facilitated by mental health professionals, these discussions foster a sense of camaraderie and support.

  2. Identifying Obstacles: Through guided exercises and therapeutic techniques, individuals will delve into the underlying emotions and thought patterns that contribute to the obstacles they face. The group provides a safe and compassionate space for honest self-reflection.

  3. Evidence-Based Techniques: Participants will learn and practice evidence-based principles from Cognitive Therapy and Behavioural Therapy. These techniques offer practical strategies to challenge negative thought patterns, manage emotions, and modify behaviors that hinder personal growth.

  4. Supportive Environment: The group offers encouragement and understanding as participants work through their obstacles and embark on their journey of change. Mutual support strengthens their resolve to overcome personal limitations.


Facilitators: Integrative Cognitive Behavioural Therapy at Schoen Clinic Chelsea is led by experienced mental health professionals who are well-versed in the principles and techniques of CBT. Our facilitators create a compassionate and non-judgemental space where individuals feel encouraged to confront their obstacles and embrace transformation.


Who Should Attend: Integrative Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is open to individuals with mental health conditions who are seeking effective tools to break through emotional barriers and cultivate positive change in their lives. If you are ready to address obstacles that hinder your emotional well-being and personal growth, this group is tailored to support your journey.

Let's get you back to better mental health

If you do decide to join the adult mental health treatment programme, the first step will be offering you an assessment where you will meet with one of the clinical team. You’ll have the opportunity to talk about your current difficulties. You’ll also be able to explain to us a little bit more about what you’ve experienced in life that may have led you to seek help at this point.


We’ll make recommendations as to what parts of the programme we think will best meet your needs. We’ll talk you through all the options and discuss together whether we think the treatment programme is right for you. If we both believe the treatment programme will be helpful for your recovery, you can normally start the treatment programme within a few days.


You will then be allocated a key worker who will meet with you regularly to support you through the programme and ensure that it meets your needs. They’ll also develop a care plan with you to outline your goals and your hopes for the treatment, working with you over the course of your treatment to ensure that it’s meeting your needs.
