Eating Disorders

We understand that eating disorders can be challenging mental health illnesses that require specialized support. At our clinic, we treat a range of eating disorders including Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge-Eating Disorder, ARFID and Diabulimia, and we’re here to support individuals of all ages starting from 12 years upwards.

Our approach to treatment is collaborative, and we focus on linking into the healthy part of you. We provide psycho-education to help you understand the nutrition your body needs, and to fight against the negative thoughts and behaviors associated with your eating disorder.

While we may provide a meal plan, this will always be guided by you and, where appropriate, your family. We also work with you to tackle fear foods and eating disorder specific behaviors that you’ve identified.

To help you make long-lasting changes, we use evidenced based behavioral change therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance commitment therapy (ACT), and solution-focused therapy. Our goal is to help you implement changes that fit with your lifestyle and values.

We focus on behavioral change, however we recognise that there may be underlying causes that need to be addressed. We work alongside psychotherapists and psychologists to ensure that you receive comprehensive care. If you have a diagnosed eating disorder, it’s important to have a therapist or psychiatrist involved in your treatment before consulting with us.

At our clinic, both Jen and Sue have extensive experience in working with individuals with eating disorders, both in the NHS and privately.

We’re here to support you and look forward to working with you towards your recovery.

Disordered eating

Are you finding food-related anxiety and guilt overwhelming?

You may be experiencing symptoms that resemble a diagnosed illness, but with less severity. You may find yourself worrying about food and feeling anxious during social occasions. You may have strict food rules that are difficult to break, leading to feelings of guilt and shame.

We want to assure you that you don’t have to go through this alone.

We’re here to help you challenge these food rules and start listening to your body’s cues.

Our approach is centered around empowering you to live a life that’s not controlled by food or your body weight.

We’ll work with you to develop strategies that fit your lifestyle and values, so you can achieve long-lasting changes.


IBS and Gastrointestinal Issues

Helping to treat conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Inflammatory Bowel Disease (including ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease) and food allergies/intolerances from a nutritional angle.

We can work with you to help discover what may be causing your gut symptoms and help to alleviate the symptoms through evidence based nutrition therapy, where appropriate.

We can help you reach a diagnosis, and guide you to know which tests might be relevant for your symptoms (and which are likely to waste your money and time!).

Bile acid disorders, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) and pancreatic insufficiency can all show up with varying symptoms and pain in the gastrointestinal tract.  Again we can help you to alleviate these symptoms and the on-going issues they can cause when left untreated.

We have extensive experience within all aspects of cancer nutritional care, including advanced expertise on neuro-endocrine neoplasms (NENs).  We also guide you through nutritional recovery if you undergo gastrointestinal surgery.

Gina works with our clients online to provide evidence based nutrition therapy in a highly individualized and sensitive way.  Her years of experience, both in hospital and in the community, enables her to support your nutritional needs and rehabilitation goals at any stage of your journey.

Intuitive Eating

Are you fed up with the yo-yo cycle of being on and off a diet? We very much work on weight management from the perspective of listening to and being kind to your body. Once you have mastered this, you tend to find your weight naturally settles at a place that is healthy for you. By tuning into your body’s internal signals and by overcoming the rules that often govern what you eat and when, you will foster a better relationship with food and your body.

We can work with you to teach you to learn to trust your body again, to break free of the negative cycle of “diet, weight loss, weight regain”, that can damage your self-esteem and leave you feeling guilty and ashamed.

If you would like a more typical weight loss plan that is also possible. However, we will not give plans that are unrealistic or unsustainable, and prefer to teach you how to eat more healthily within the context of your lifestyle. We know from the research that fad diets do not work and they drive disordered eating.

Any goals for weight management are slow and achievable, and come from a whole lifestyle, personalised approach, as opposed to a quick fix.
