Eating disorders

This specialised programme provides treatment for eating disorders through the care of experienced professionals. It aims to help you achieve weight stabilisation, normalise your eating patterns, and also works on your attitude towards food, body image beliefs, and eating behaviours.

Who will benefit from this programme?

Eating disorders are complex issues to treat and can take time to recover from.

This treatment programme is specifically designed not only to address a person's immediate need for recovery, but also to provide them and their loved ones with vital coping tools to help them with eating, body image and mental health long after discharge.

Our adult eating disorder programme

The programme also challenges distorted beliefs around body image and addresses body dysmorphia, and aims to alter destructive or unhealthy behaviours around eating.

Family involvement in the treatment process is vitally important as this promotes a deeper understanding of the illness, which in turn enables recovery.
