Approach to Eating Disorder Treatment

Eating disorder help and treatment at Priory

At Priory, you’ll receive a bespoke eating disorder treatment journey, helping you to achieve the best possible outcomes for you. We don’t just look at your eating habits and physical symptoms - we also help you address the underlying emotional issues which could be contributing to your eating disorder. Our specialists will help you to:

  • Understand the factors that are contributing to your illness
  • Teach you skills and coping mechanisms for the future
  • Help you to take steps towards a full and sustainable recovery

We can also work with your family and carers to help them understand how best to support you.

All of the eating disorder treatment that we deliver at Priory is based on National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines, which means you’ll be getting the highest quality support while you’re with us. Our expert team of eating disorder psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists and other professionals, are committed to remaining up to date with current research, to make sure our practice is guided by the latest research.

Common eating disorder behaviours

Eating disorders are complex mental health conditions. They cause people to become obsessed with their appearance, body shape and weight, which can lead them to develop extremely unhealthy eating habits and behaviours. These behaviours may include:

  • Limiting the amount of food you consume
  • Eating large amounts of food in one sitting even when you’re not hungry
  • Trying to remove calories from your body in harmful ways such as making yourself sick, abusing laxatives or exercising excessively
  • A combination of these

Without expert eating disorder help, these unhealthy behaviours can have a negative impact on your physical and mental health, and can even be fatal. However, the good news is that eating disorders are treatable and it’s possible for you to make a full recovery – you just need to reach out for support.
