Ashley Cross Eating Disorders Service

We are a small private community service based in the heart of Ashley Cross in Poole. We offer therapy to those wanting to overcome with Anorexia, Bulimia and Binge Eating. One-to-one therapy is offered face-to-face or online. We offer concession rates which are with our qualified counsellors. 

You will have a chance to discuss your goals for reducing restrictive eating, binging and purging by making individual goals towards normalising your eating. Appointments are available in person and online to support meal plans moving into recovery. 

Our OT team are here to help you to integrate, leisure activities and productivity into your recovery. We offer support groups and rolling programs to help you to maintain the progress you have made from inpatient treatment, ending one-to-one therapy or to prepare for other life transitions like moving out of home or preventing relapse. We run a variety of support groups for those struggling with an eating disorder in the community. Such as our bing eating program, this program is a self-help group program that will carry individuals through reducing preoccupation around shape and weight, normalising eating patterns and building body confidence. We also bring weekly topics which are facilitated by our team. Our workshops run through out the week and vary from mindfulness, shelf help book club, meal planning and emotional regulation. We try to keep these fun so that we can build skills for 'real-life' living.
