Programmes

Psychological Treatment for Eating Disorders

As a specialist team of registered Clinical Psychologists & Counselling Psychologists (+ Dietitian), we provide treatment for the full range of eating disorders and eating/weight/shape concerns across all ages and stages of life. We draw heavily on evidence-based psychological interventions (or therapies) when planning individual treatment. These are treatments that have strong evidence for their effectiveness from high quality research trials involving people with eating disorders, anxiety, or mood concerns from around the world. As psychologists, we are trained to integrate current evidence-based treatments with emerging approaches from ongoing research developments in the eating disorder field, and to use these foundations to tailor a treatment plan suitable for each individual situation. With children and adolescents, the family (parents/guardians) are typically a key part of the treatment team, and fully engaged in assessment and treatment delivery. With younger children, parents are typically in session with their child. Read more about our treatment approach for eating disorders, both for adults and children/teens here.
