Welcome

The Recover Clinic is Europe’s leading specialist outpatient service, treating sufferers of trauma, depression, body dysmorphia, anxiety and eating disorders. We reach out to people, rather than a diagnosis and we work collaboratively to share personalised treatment plans that consider not just an illness, but also who that person is, their hopes and dreams, and what their specific needs might be. We believe in inspiring and empowering women to move beyond destructive behaviours and to learn how to love who they really are. There is a freer and more meaningful future out there waiting for you and we are here to show you the way.
