Highly specialised treatments for eating disorders

Eating disorders are complex mental health conditions that involve a range of symptoms related to food, body image and self-esteem. These conditions can have a devastating effect on both physical and emotional health and can lead to serious complications if left untreated.

At Schoen Clinic, we welcome children, teens and adults across 3 highly specialised hospitals and clinics in the UK, where we specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of eating disorders, offering a range of evidence-based therapies and interventions to help individuals overcome these challenging conditions.

If you or a loved one are struggling with an eating disorder, don't hesitate to get in touch with us to find out how we can help.

At Schoen Clinic Chelsea, our Specialists have developed an innovative stepped-care model, enabling you to work through the programmes at your own pace. Tailored to 11-17 year olds, treatment begins with the full-day programme initially, often including a combination of 1:1 treatment, group therapy and family support.



Our specialised Intensive Treatment Programme offers a range of therapeutic treatments for adults experiencing conditions such as depression, anxiety, panic attacks, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), stress, low mood, emotional trauma, low self-esteem or bipolar disorder.

We're here to help.



Our multidisciplinary team of experts at Schoen Clinic Chelsea, help you return to healthier eating habits using specialised one-to-one therapies, which can often reverse the serious complications caused by the eating disorder itself.

Your eating disorder recovery is our priority

Our team of highly trained and compassionate eating disorder specialists are dedicated to helping those suffering from disordered eating to achieve lasting recovery and enjoy a happy and fulfilling life. From initial assessment through to ongoing care and support, we use a personalised approach to treatment to ensure that each individual's unique needs are met.

We offer a range of treatment options for eating disorders, including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), interpersonal psychotherapy, family therapy, and nutritional counselling. We also provide medically supervised weight management programmes and inpatient care for those with severe or life-threatening eating disorders.

Since each individual is unique, there could be any number of factors contributing to their eating disorder. Negative life experiences, such as a traumatic event, might contribute to the emergence of an eating disorder. When overwhelming emotions of worry and anxiety arise, an eating disorder serves to temporarily alleviate those feelings by channelling the individual's energy into an unhealthy obsession with food, eating or exercise.

As a result of these varying factors, there is no right or wrong way to have an eating disorder. And, when it comes to diagnosis you may not "check all the boxes" you might assume would confirm an eating disorder. Get in touch with our team today to find out more.

How our award-winning private eating disorder specialists can help

The sooner you receive help for your eating disorder the better your chances of recovery are. Research shows that early intervention (seeking treatment within the first 3 years of the disorder) can have a positive impact on the effectiveness of eating disorder treatment. Eating disorders thrive in isolation so if you are worried that you are developing an eating disorder, or you're worried about a friend or loved one then it's important that you raise your concerns and speak to someone who can help.

At Schoen Clinic we have developed an innovative stepped care model which provides our patients with the right level of support at different points of their journey to recovery.
