Ariel Ward – Female Personality Disorder

Ariel Ward is Cygnet Hospital Coventry’s specialist inpatient personality disorder service. It provides a service for women aged over 18 and offers a range of therapeutic activities and interventions. The primary therapeutic model with regards to psychological treatment is a comprehensive Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) programme.

Ariel Ward also offers a highly specialised service for individuals with a personality disorder and co-morbid disordered eating. Women with this dual diagnosis can often be hard to place and treat as many existing services across the country either focus on the personality disorder or the eating disorder

Both aspects will be treated simultaneously at Cygnet Hospital Coventry, with the appropriate specialist therapeutic input provided. This will include the ability to undertake naso-gastric or peg feeding, if required.

To make a referral, or for more information about the service please contact Paul Tennant, Clinical Manager, at paultennant@cygnethealth.co.uk, or paul.tennant1@nhs.net.
