Treatment philosophy

A stay at The Buttery Private gives you the opportunity to take time out from your hectic life in a serene, supported, non-judgemental environment.

Participants examine the underlying causes of anxiety, depression, post traumatic stress and substance misuse and their consequences. Guided by experienced counsellors, you can develop strategies to help you lead a more fulfilling, healthier life.

Each resident has their own individual therapist and engages in group therapy. A team of health professionals, including body workers, naturopaths, physiotherapists, nutritionists, exercise and massage therapists is available to provide support as needed.

Whether your life is being limited by anxiety, depression, substance misuse, unhealthy eating patterns, pain or a general lack of well-being; our program is designed to help you become physically and mentally stronger and achieve true wellbeing.

The program is designed for people you may be struggling with stress, overwhelm, burnout and substance and behavioural addictions.

It is an evidence-based program. It incorporates the principles of; Compassion Focused Therapy and Schema Therapy, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction.

During the structured follow-up period after the four week residential stay you will be fully supported in applying to your day-to-day life what you have learnt through the program to lead a more fulfilling, energised life.

The Buttery Private program is unique and unlike some other mental health, substance misuse treatment and rehab programs.  We recognise the value of the “community as method” concept.

All participants are encouraged to connect with each other. You work together to create a mutually caring environment for everyone taking part. This helps end the isolation many people feel and is of proven benefit for everyone.

This program fosters personal change. Participants learn how to develop individual awareness. They learn how to manage the emotional regulation of inner feelings, needs, conflicts and core beliefs, particularly as they arise in their relationships with others.
