Feed the soil, privet is a gross feeder so mulch with composted bark or similar or gently fork in some compost or other good humus rich matter.

Prune it so it is wider at the bottom than at the top. That will keep it full to the base. If soil care has been neglected for a long time, some fish meal or blood meal might be indicated, too.
