The Surrey Centre for Eating Disorders
The Surrey Centre for Eating Disorders is a unique non-residential clinic dedicated to the prevention and treatment of eating disorders.
We work with both men, women and young people from 13 years upwards, who have a difficult relationship with food.
An eating disorder develops when food is used or abused as a way of controlling difficult feelings. If left untreated, it can be destructive, progressively take over your life and severely damage your health.
We believe that by giving clients the skills to change their eating behaviours and offering a safe environment in which to address underlying emotional issues, they can begin to live a life free from the fear, secrecy and shame associated with their own particular circumstances.
Please call for an informal discussion – this will be a chance for you learn about us and the way we work. Its will be a time for us to find if we can work with you and point you in the right direction if your eating disorder is too acute.
The Surrey Centre’s Nutrition Philosophy is based on nutrition and a healthy relationship with food thereby promoting a balanced diet as part of a healthy lifestyle.
At The Surrey Centre we use an integrated method of therapy, drawing on different therapeutic approaches and adapting them to meet individual clients needs.
At The Surrey Centre, we are able to work together with partners, parents, siblings and children helping them understand how to help their loved one. When appropriate we invite the whole family to participate in sessions when feelings and experiences can be shared.
We understand that it is not only the individual with an eating disorder that needs support and that, often, a wider impact is felt by the whole family. We have put together a Family Education Programme offering a range of practical, dietetic help and advice alongside counselling and emotional support.
