Segar House Outpatient Programme
What is the Segar House Outpatient Programme?
The Outpatient Programme is designed for adults who have a wide range of emotional, psychological and psychiatric disorders. For example, long-standing or difficult-to-treat depression, anxiety disorders, and personality difficulties. Most are currently being treated at Community Mental Health Centres; some come from private practitioners. Generally they present with a variety of psychiatric symptoms. Under these symptoms there is often a history of physical or emotional/psychological abuse or neglect, or sexual abuse, abandonment, loss, and other trauma experiences. Most patients have difficulties in their relationships with other people & with their self-esteem.
The programme consists mainly of group therapy. However we like to ensure that most clients accepted for a daytime group programme are also receiving concurrent individual therapy for the duration of the group. This is usually provided either by their referrer, or where this is not possible, may be provided by our staff.
There are six different therapy groups that clients can be referred to. The most suitable group for the client is decided at assessment and in consultation with the client and referrer. Most clients enter the Outpatient Programme via the Skills Group. Clients may move from one group to another as they progress in therapy. Each of the groups listed below take 8-10 participants, both male and female.
The Skills Group, The Mentalisation Based Therapy Group, The Compassionate Mindfulness Group, The Interpersonal Therapy Group, The Trauma & Recovery Group, The Art Therapy Group.
Monday to Friday: 8.30am to 5.00pm
