The Eating Disorders Programme at The Surrey Centre understands the need to treat the whole person. Individualised treatment plans, that can also include group work, are a fundamental part of the shared journey towards recovery.
Through valuing and respecting individual uniqueness and personal history we can work with you in a more sensitive and caring way to address issues such as obsessive compulsive behaviours, depression, anxiety and low self esteem. Our programme provides a safe environment in which you can change and become free from your eating disorder.
The goals of the eating disorders programme at The Surrey Centre are to help educate you around nutrition and related health issues, understand how food has become a symbol for deeper feelings of distress and low self esteem and to invite you begin to put food back into its rightful place.
We would be really pleased to hear from you if you have any questions or would like more information.
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.
As a first step we recommend you come for an assessment. You will be guided through the process by one of our therapists. During the assessment you will have a chance to get a feel for how we work, time to tell us your story, to explain to us what you hope to gain from therapy and what your reservations might be.
Referrals to The Surrey Centre for Counselling & Psychotherapy can be made via self referral, GP, Consultant Psychiatrist/Psychologist, Psychotherapist/Counsellor or other appropriate professional.
If you are referred to The Surrey Centre by a psychiatrist we will, with your agreement, work closely with them to ensure you receive a complete package of care. For some of our clients meeting the team at The Surrey Centre is the first point of contact. If at any point we feel the support of a Psychiatrist would be beneficial we will recommend this to you.
