Adult Bulimia Services

Ellern Mede’s service for bulimia and binge eating disorders is not currently taking patients and we will advise when we re-launch this service.

At Ellern Mede Barnet we have opened a high-quality dedicated Bulimia / Binge Eating Disorder private ward, for just 4 young female adults at a time, to engage in short-term inpatient programmes focused on symptom interruption. We also offer Outpatient clinics and Day Patient Services. Visit us at Barnet or in Harley or Wimpole streets in central London. Whatever your needs, our bespoke services can help.

Specialist fast access Bulimia Nervosa Outpatient / Inpatient Programmes

Ellern Mede’s specialist Bulimia Nervosa treatment programmes are consultant-led, flexible, fast to access and confidential. People with Bulimia Nervosa may often find a lack of service availability. We believe our Outpatient and short term Inpatient programme options for adults and adolescents are much needed. We can accept patients from anywhere in the UK or internationally. A range of treatment methods we offer include psychological eating disorder therapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Bulimia Nervosa (CBT-BN). Research evidence shows that CBT-BN is the treatment of choice for Bulimia Nervosa. NICE guidelines recommend outpatient treatment using CBT-BN should continue for no less than five months however our flexible programme options give you the benefit of choice of programme type and duration. We believe that, based on a review of international best practice, short term intensive inpatient treatment for adults, which are focused on symptom interruption, supported by follow up or preliminary Outpatient support, will achieve very positive outcomes for adult patients.

“Symptom interruption provided through specialist short term, repeated, inpatient or outpatient treatment spells can be highly effective to support recovery from eating disorders including Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa. Ellern Mede is making this possible by offering flexible new programmes at several London locations.”

Dr Eric Johnson-Sabine, Consultant Psychiatrist

Ellern Mede Barnet is offering a 4-week adult Bulimia Nervosa Inpatient programme. During the programme, the patient will experience:

  • supervised symptom interruption
  • specialist dietetic input
  • CBT both individually and in a group
  • additional psychotherapy and psychoeducation as prescribed
  • supervised meal times
  • a range of activities

The recommendation and programme intention is that this is followed up with an after care package flexibly designed to meet each individual’s circumstances and needs.We understand that the demands of a busy life can make it difficult to find time to concentrate on your health. Our confidential, flexible approach minimises disruption to your time to help you to maintain other commitments whilst receiving treatment.
