Ariel Ward – Female Personality Disorder

Opening in May 2017, Ariel Ward will be Cygnet Hospital Coventry’s specialist inpatient personality disorder service. It will provide a service for women aged over 18 and will offer a range of therapeutic interventions including Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and Schema Focused Therapy.

Ariel Ward will also offer a highly specialised service for individuals with co-morbid disordered eating. Women with this dual diagnosis category 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.

Referrals are now being accepted for Ariel Ward. 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.
