About: Priory Hospital Roehampton

What I liked

I was a patient back in 1990-91. I spent 3 months at the priory, and you were a god send! I would recommend the priory to anyone who can afford it. The meals were superb, my room was great, and the staff were terrific!! I loved the cognitive therapy, and along with the yoga that I was taught, I am still able today, to get rid of a headache without medication. Above all, I was, and still do, deal with stress and depression using the therapy I was taught, so I wish to thank you all for being there when people like me and thousands of others, need help. I was also treated with respect.

What could be improved

As far as I'm concerned, nothing could have been improved. Everything was great!!

Anything else?

I have always remembered the priory as being my life line at a time in my life when I needed one. I doubt very much if I would have recovered had I not have been sent to the priory. What I discovered was, you didn't have to be a celebrity to be in the priory.....and even if you were, we were all treated the same. I have been living here in the U.S. since 1994, and have often spoke of my stay at the hospital, with much affection. It has left a big Impression in my life.
