Parent and carer assessment and treatment timeline
 

Types of treatment

FFT Workshop:

You may be invited to a workshop were you will learn Emotion Focused Family Therapy (EFFT) skills to support your loved one in their recovery.

FBT (Family Based Treatment):

If your loved one is under 18, we offer Family Based Therapy (FBT), the first-line evidence-based treatment for young people with eating disorders. FBT takes place fortnightly with a family therapist, specialist nurse or clinical psychologist. These sessions may involve everyone in the family or parent-only sessions. A course of treatment is typically 20 sessions and may last around one year.
