Depression & Anxiety

How we can help

Dealing with anxiety and depression can be mentally and physically exhausting. Just getting out of bed or engaging in social situations may leave you feeling drained and unable to engage in normal activities. 

If you are looking for support or treatment, The Cottage can help. Our highly experienced team offer one-to-one treatment and a range of bespoke therapies to help each client begin their recovery.

If you are suffering from anxiety or depression, signs and symptoms may include: 

  • Avoiding spending time with friends and family
  • No longer taking part in hobbies you once enjoyed
  • You have stopped taking care of yourself
  • Feeling numb or uninterested in life
  • Mood swings, feeling worthless, ashamed or loathing yourself
  • Feeling paranoid
  • Having a hard time sleeping
  • Unexplained pain, or digestive issues
  • Neglecting your responsibilities
“Life Works has saved my life. It has opened my eyes and made me realise how much I have to give. It has given me the tools and determination to recognise who I really am. My life will never be the same again. I am a better, nicer and happier person than ever I could have imagined. I have already recommended Life Works to a friend and there will be many more”

Hospital Director and Registered Manager

"The Cottage will become your home away from home providing you with complete discretion and privacy.  Treatment will be tailored exclusively for your needs."

The Cottage offers extensive aftercare planning; we want to ensure every client who leaves The Cottage is fully supported for the future, not just during their stay with us. We provide information on services such as ‘sober living’ companies and sign post you towards safe and reliable contacts. Often we don’t take an active role in aftercare but provide you with suggestions and helpful contacts so you can continue to live as normal of a life as possible.

Our treatment programmes will be unique to the individual and our psychotherapeutic tools help our experts identify the underlying causes of depression and anxiety, to ensure a successful recovery. We also provide stress-relieving holistic therapies such as meditation and equine therapy, so our clients can truly relax and unwind in our luxurious environment.
