UK-based mental health care facility Priory Wellbeing Centre, which has reportedly treated celebrities like Lily Allen, Johnny Depp and Amy Winehouse, has opened a facility in Dubai.
Priory Wellbeing Centre Dubai, will be fully integrated with Priory’s facilities in the UK to provide quality, evidence-based behavioural care to the UAE, a statement on the company website said.
The facility will provide treatment for a wide range of conditions including depression, stress, and anxiety-related conditions including obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and panic attacks.
Will Goodwin, managing director of Priory Group in the Middle East, was quoted as saying in the statement, “I am extremely excited to expand our care internationally, particularly within the UAE.
“Every year many people reach the point of needing mental health support. Our specialists can provide confidential bespoke support and treatment tailored to particular needs and goals.”
'The Priory Group has invested AED 2m in the Centre which will be staffed by psychiatrists and counsellors, led by Priory’s Middle East Medical Director, Dr Saaed Islam.
The Centre has seven rooms for one-to-one patient consultations, two group rooms, and flexible consulting hours including the option of evening appointments. It offers treatment and therapy covered by private medical insurance or self-funding for the local and expat community,' the statement noted.
