Wellbeing Centre Process and Experience

What can I expect when I arrive at the Wellbeing Centre?

Our Wellbeing Centre entrance is very private and discreet and there are a number of convenient parking options available for our patients, including valet parking. Upon entering the centre, you will be welcomed by the reception team, who will provide you with refreshments, register you, and introduce you to the clinician who will be undertaking your initial assessment. The staff at both of our clinics in Abu Dhabi and Dubai are committed to ensuring that each and every one of our patients feels comfortable and at ease.

I would like to express my greatest gratitude for joining the therapy sessions at the Priory Wellbeing Centre. The Centre is equipped with highly qualified psychiatrists and psychologists from diverse cultures, bringing them to successfully treat the mental health of the individual. Also, the staff there have been friendly and cooperative with the patients, able to serve them at a satisfactory level.

The initial assessment options are outlined below:

  • Psychiatrist assessment – the purpose of this is to diagnose your specific mental health condition, and develop a specialised treatment plan according to your individual symptoms and requirements.
  • Counsellor assessment – the purpose of this is to determine the best course of therapy for your individual requirements, based on an existing diagnosis or mental health problem. Again, your treatment plan will be bespoke in nature, and personalised to meet your specific needs.

Your initial assessment will last for approximately one hour. You are welcome to bring a family member, friend or colleague along with you to your assessment if you wish.

You will be able to commence with premium treatment immediately following your initial assessment, delivered by the most appropriate specialist for your needs. The length of your treatment will be flexible according to your requirements and will take the form of either 1:1, group or family therapy.

The therapeutic methods that we are able to offer at both Priory Wellbeing Centres in Abu Dhabi and Dubai include:

  • Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
  • Psychodynamic psychotherapy
  • Eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Mindfulness
  • Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT)
