Dietetics and Nutrition

Recovering from a mental health condition is a physical and emotional challenge. Getting your nutrition in check can aid your recovery by fuelling your body with energy for the process. The food you put inside your body has a profound impact on your mind and mental wellness. There is a common misconception that recovery from mental illness or substance abuse is all about altering behaviour and thought processes, and while these are critical components, maintaining good levels of hydration and nutrition is also key.

Through dietetics and nutrition therapy, you can acquire knowledge around your diet and nutrient health from a trained dietitian. For many people, this comes after a long period of neglecting one’s health so the support of a specialist is extremely beneficial.

Our approach at Addcounsel is to deliver the highest quality of treatment, in a safe and confidential setting. This means that you receive one-to-one care, and your treatment plan is specialised to your recovery needs. You will work with one of our expert nutritionists to complement your individual treatment plan and make strides towards physical and mental health.

How Dietetics And Nutrition Works

Dietetics and nutrition therapy is a complex treatment modality delivered by our team of experts that incorporates scientific knowledge and education, as well as emotional and psychological work to establish healthy eating routines. We do not use nutritional therapy as an isolated modality. Rather, it works in combination with the other mental health treatments we deliver, and can help produce positive results in your recovery process.
Dietetics and nutrition therapy will always start with a comprehensive assessment from one of our trained nutritionists. This enables them to build up a fuller picture of your health needs and to identify any nutrient deficiencies. Following this, they will create a plan with your input in order to devise a workable, achievable schedule suited to your recovery goals.
Our highly skilled dietitians can help you find optimal cognitive and emotional balance so you can benefit more fully from treatment.
You can expect to receive comprehensive care and support throughout your recovery plan, and a thorough aftercare package too. We know that keeping your nutritional health in check for the long haul is imperative. We strive to make this easier for you by putting a plan in place when your time with us is finished.
Our dietitians take a multifaceted approach to your nutrition. They will educate and empower you to make good choices for you and your body, backing this up with science so that you can feel certain you are on the right track. They will also monitor your vitamin levels and prescribe for you the right combination of vitamins and minerals.

How Dietetics And Nutrition Can Help You

Through working with a dietitian, you can restore your physical health and reverse any damage made to the body while you were experiencing mental illness. By feeling physically healthier and stronger, you are better equipped to face recovery. Dietetics and nutrition therapy focuses on a number of things including:

  • Stabilising your emotions and limiting spikes in stress and mood fluctuations
  • Nourishing your body which may have been damaged by substance abuse or neglect
  • Working to limit any cravings for substances
  • Encouraging recovery from any medical conditions you have developed
  • Establishing healthy and self-empowering routines of a lifestyle which can contribute to an overall improved wellbeing.

A healthy body is imperative for mental health and addiction recovery. It allows you to focus more fully and feel in control of your journey, leaving space for a spiritual and emotional growth.
We take a holistic approach to therapy which is exemplified in the work of our nutritional therapists. Our mission is to arm you with a set of tools which can support you through any difficult days in the future, and a healthy body and mind is the foundation for this.

Unequalled Privacy and Luxury

At Addcounsel, we firmly believe that nobody should suffer alone. Mental illness and addiction can be an extremely isolating existence, but we are on your side. Putting some energy into establishing a healthy eating routine can have profound effects on your mind and body. Evidence shows that it can reduce anxiety, improve hormone regulation, and stabilise your emotions.

There is no ‘right’ way to recover – the process is entirely unique and we reflect that in our treatment options. Our expert medical team will take a full assessment of your current physical and mental health and your medical history in order to tailor a treatment plan to your needs.

Our central London clinic is a mental health clinic unlike any other. Our team specialises in a range of cutting edge therapy methods and we offer these in combination with a variety of holistic treatments.

Addcounsel are the only luxury treatment centre in London who offer a network of 80 specialists on a one-to-one basis to their clients. We pride ourselves on focussing on clinical excellence, meaning that we are client focussed but results driven. We understand what it is to work with wealthy clients; we know that it is not always easy and we know how to treat the complex and unique challenges it can entail.
We carry out a thorough diagnosis with our team of expert medical and psychiatric practitioners; this enables us to not only know what the client’s immediate problem is but the underlying factors which may be affecting it. We use this to provide a bespoke holistic treatment program in which every single aspect of the client is looked after, from their physical to their mental health. We are well equipped to match both our clients therapeutic and lifestyle needs, and we provide ongoing care plans with the goal of enabling our clients to have long lasting and consistent recovery.

Our treatment programs are delivered on a case-by-case basis. Humans are all individuals, and at Addcounsel we recognise that. This is why our program is always tailored to the needs of the client as a person, rather than trying to apply a “one-size-fits-all” treatment model. However, some of the therapies our clients can expect to receive are:

  • Psychotherapy
  • EMDR
  • Family Systems Therapy
  • Spiritual counselling
  • Mindfulness
  • RTMS
  • Somantic Experiencing
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy – CBT
  • Positive psychology
  • Hypnotherapy

In short, no. Our staff are very experienced in dealing with high-profile individuals and as such we understand the value of complete privacy. The only way that someone will find out that you attended Addcounsel is if you choose to tell them.

Our treatment programs are bespoke, and as such they do not have to have a set finish date. If you decide that you need to extend your stay with us, then we will extend your stay as long as you want.
If you decide that you need additional help upon leaving treatment, we offer tailored aftercare plans which can be carried out all over the world. This means that at any point you can have a member of our team with you, wherever you decide to go.

Absolutely. At Addcounsel, we pride ourselves on minimal disruption to the lifestyles of our clients. We want them to feel at home and comfortable during their time with us, so your staff can either stay with you or we can accommodate them in one of our exclusive Central London properties. We do provide a chef, but you are of course welcome to bring your own.
Addcounsel is also able to provide house staff, butlers, and private security if our clients require it.
