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 and women 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.
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.
At The Surrey Centre, we are closely monitoring the outbreak of Coronavirus (Covid-19) and are following advice from Public Health England and the National Health Service. Our highest priority is the wellbeing of our clients, our staff and the wider community.
