At Life Works, our market-leading eating disorder treatment programme provides effective treatment for a number of eating disorders, including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder (BED) and other specified feeding or eating disorders (OSFED).
Our high quality eating disorder treatment team focuses on the psychological, social, behavioural and physical sides of your condition. We will support you to develop healthier eating habits, learn coping strategies to help you to deal with negative emotions, and prevent relapse. We use a range of tried and tested therapeutic interventions to help achieve these goals, all of which are evidence-based and have been found to be effective in promoting a sustainable recovery from these debilitating conditions.
Our tried and tested eating disorder programme offers flexibility, including 7, 14, 21, 28, 35, and 42-day programmes (longer if needed) and is suitable for adults with a body mass index (BMI) of 14.5 and over.
