Our services

What is an Eating Disorder?

The main features of eating disorders are:

  • Unusual eating behaviours such as starving, over-eating, binge-eating, or selective eating.
  • Other unusual behaviours such as inducing vomiting, abuse of laxatives or diuretics, or excessive exercising.
  • Extreme concerns about weight or shape which affects the way somebody eats.

What we offer

We offer an assessment service, to help you understand the nature of your eating problems and any underlying issues. This can help us to recommend a comprehensive treatment package in collaboration with your GP, or other professionals who may be involved. 

We understand the importance of a holistic approach for the treatment of eating disorders and find that the best outcomes are achieved by combining individual therapy with nutritional therapy. 

Who might benefit from our services?

We offer a range of therapeutic interventions to support people with their sense of self, body image, emotions and diet, associated with eating. People may have previously received diagnoses of Anorexia Nervosa Bulimia Nervosa Binge Eating Disorder Obesity and Food Phobias Eating Disorder Not Other Specified. Depending on your needs, we will recommend the best way to get the support you need.
