    Our team combines a highly specialist knowledge in eating disorders with expertise in evidence-based treatments which support families to use their strengths and skills to support their child overcome an eating disorder.

    Our services:

    The Eating Disorders Clinic
    The Eating Disorders Clinic serves children and teens who live locally, and are registered to a GP in Bexley, Bromley, Croydon, Greenwich, Lambeth, Lewisham or Southwark. It offers treatment for all eating disorders except ARFID and feeding disorders, which are treated in our other clinics.

    Our outpatient service is accessible and responsive. If you think you need help you can simply make a self-referral , or if you are a family member you can refer a loved one . If you are a professional (e.g. school nurse or GP) please refer here . You can also call us during our office hours (Mon-Fri, 9am-5pm) on 020 3228 2545.

    We aim to see all routine referrals within 28 days, urgent referrals within 7 days, and emergency referrals within 24 hours. If in doubt, please do not hesitate to refer.

    Intensive Treatment Programme:
    The Intensive Treatment Programme (ITP) is a day programme for young people who are already in treatment for an eating disorder, but need a bit of extra support.

    At ITP, we see under 18s living in England who have an eating disorder and feel like their treatment is not progressing despite everyone's best efforts. ITP is a day programme so young people and family members need to be able to commute daily to ITP.

    If you have not been treated for an eating disorder before, we always suggest contacting your local specialist service before even thinking about ITP. For most people, this is more than enough.

    If you are already in treatment and still feel that you need more support, ITP might be for you. Just ask your practitioner to get in touch with us.

    The ARFID Clinic
    Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder, or ARFID, is very different from anorexia nervosa and other eating disorders. The ARFID and Related Disorders Clinic offers targeted treatment for ARFID and other feeding disorders. We provide detailed assessments and specialised therapy for children and teens with various avoidant or restrictive eating behaviours.

    We know that different people struggle with their food intake for different reasons. At the ARFID clinic, we pay close attention to your individual situation, so that we can carefully select the treatments that will be most effective for you.
