What we treat

We provide integrated nutritional, medical and psychological care for people with severe eating disorders, such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and other eating disorders.

Anorexia Nervosa
Someone with anorexia nervosa worries all the time about food, eating, body weight or body shape. Behaviours such as eating very little or over-exercising can lead to losing a lot of weight.  This can soon result in physical symptoms such as fatigue and loss of periods, and psychological symptoms such as feeling low and withdrawing from friends and family.

Bulimia Nervosa
Someone with bulimia nervosa also worries a lot about body weight and body shape. They alternate between eating very little, and then over-eating and feeling out of control, guilty and ashamed. They may make themselves sick after eating and compensate for eating by exercising.

Binge Eating Disorder
Someone with binge eating disorder struggles with frequent episodes of binge eating which can make them feel out of control and guilty.  

Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorder (OSFED)
This is when someone has considerable difficulty and distress around eating, but doesn’t meet diagnostic criteria for any of the above eating disorders. Some but not all of the features of anorexia and bulimia are likely to be present.

Medically unexplained weight loss and severe underweight
Where there is no likely physical cause for weight loss, we can help to assess whether there is an underlying eating disorder.
