Our values

We take pride in a long history of developing highly effective new clinical interventions, supported by extensive research, that can make an important difference for young people and their families.

However, our top priority has always been to provide the highest possible quality of clinical care for young people and their families. For us, this doesn’t just mean expertise in the treatment of eating disorders. It also means empathy and genuine understanding between young people, parents and professionals. We will always treat our patients and their families with sensitivity and respect.

  • Compassionate

    We know that living with eating disorders can be extremely difficult for young people and their families.

    We will always try to work with you in ways that show sensitivity, patience, warmth, understanding and perhaps even a dash of humour.

  • Dedicated

    We believe that continuity of care is paramount. As soon as you arrive for your assessment, you’ll meet your care coordinator or therapist.

    They’ll work with you throughout treatment, making sure to understand and respond to your needs every step of the way.

  • Inclusive

    We’re keen to dispel myths about eating disorders: we know that eating disorders can affect anyone, regardless of age, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, or sexuality.

    Our practitioners come from a wide variety of backgrounds, and always aim to provide culturally sensitive treatment.

  • Responsive

    We strive to respond to referrals, crises and emergencies as soon as possible.

    We know how unpredictable eating disorders and related problems can be, and we will always make sure to react to changes in your condition as quickly and effectively as we’re able.

  • Evidence-based

    All of our treatments are informed by the latest scientific evidence.

    Over the years, our groundbreaking research has significantly contributed to the medical community’s understanding of eating disorders in young people. It has even influenced national and international policies. 

  • Collaborative

    Our experience strongly suggests that the best results are achieved by building close partnerships between young people, their parents or carers, and ourselves.

    We want you to feel supported by us through the process of treatment.  

  • Holistic

    In many cases, eating disorders go hand in hand with other emotional and physical conditions, such as depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, autism  spectrum disorder, self-harm, post traumatic stress disorder, substance and medication misuse and diabetes.

    Children and young people deserve to feel happy and confident: that’s why we won’t just help them to improve their nutrition, but also to address any co-existing difficulties in their lives.

  • Innovative

    We take pride in a long history of developing highly effective new clinical interventions, powered by exhaustive research, that can make a powerful difference for young people and their families.

    Maudsley Family Therapy and Multi-Family Therapy are just two examples of the exciting and world-renowned innovations that were pioneered in our service.

Finally, although we’re proud of our history and reputation, we strive to constantly improve our approach with every new patient that enters our care. We understand that everyone is unique; that’s why from the moment you are referred to the day you are discharged from our service, we will adapt to suit your individual needs.

If you’re unsure about whether you should be worried, please get in touch. We can help.

We serve young people under the age of 18 who are registered with a GP in one of these London boroughs: Bexley, Bromley, Croydon, Greenwich, Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark.
