We treat clients with eating disorders in as collaborative way as possible, linking into the healthy part of you. With psycho-education focused on nutrition and how your body works, we hope to enable to you to fight the eating disorder voice and eat the food you need. We will often give a meal plan, but it may not always be necessary and this will be guided by you and, where relevant, your family. If and when appropriate, we then help you start to tackle fear foods and eating disorder specific behaviours that you have identified. Using principles of evidenced based behavioural change therapies, such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), acceptance commitment therapy (ACT), as well as solution focused based therapy, we help you implement long-lasting changes that fit with your lifestyle and values. Whilst we work on a behavioural change level, this does not identify the root cause of your illness and you will need to be working on this with a psychotherapist or psychologist alongside our treatment. In the cases of diagnosed eating disorders, having a therapist or psychiatrist involved is a prerequisite for consultations with us. Both Jen and Sue have extensive experience of working with people with eating disorders, both in the NHS and privately, and look forward to working with you.
