About us

The Surrey Centre for Eating Disorders

If you or a family member have a problem with food please call for an informal chat to explore what is going on for you or your family member.

The Surrey Centre for Eating Disorders is a unique non-residential clinic dedicated to the prevention and treatment of eating disorders.

We work with both men and women who have a difficult relationship with food.

An eating disorder develops when food is used or abused as a way of controlling difficult feelings. If left untreated, it can be destructive, progressively take over your life and severely damage your health.

We believe that by giving clients the skills to change their eating behaviours and offering a safe environment in which to address underlying emotional issues, they can begin to live a life free from the fear, secrecy and shame associated with their own particular circumstances.

Training, qualifications & experience

The team at The Surrey Centre bring together many years of experience working in a range of therapeutic disciplines, from general counselling through to anxiety, depression, addictions and more. They are dedicated and passionate about the work they do.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Eating disorders

At The Surrey Centre we offer a service to both women and men who have a diagnosed eating disorder or who are experiencing any form of disordered eating.

Disordered eating is when your relationship with food is beginning to affect your everyday life but it is not yet severe enough to warrant a formal diagnosis of an eating disorder.

People with eating disorders or disordered eating all use or abuse food as a way of managing emotions such as loneliness, sadness, stress, anxiety and fluctuations in mood.

Eating disorders appear in a number of ways; if you find yourself becoming more and more preoccupied with restricting, controlling food intake and/or regularly binge eating or eating more than your body requires, you may have an eating disorder. You may notice some of the following behaviours: avoiding eating in company, throwing food away, hiding food, consuming large amounts of food, becoming anxious when there is either too much or too little food to eat, doing excessive amounts of exercise, or making yourself sick after eating.

  • An Eating Disorder is not motivated by attention seeking – no one chooses to have one.
  • An Eating Disorder can cause serious physical damage
  • An Eating Disorder will severely affect your day-to-day life
  • An Eating Disorder left untreated will get progressively get worse

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
