Reaching Out to Recovery

[author title=”Ellie Parkins” author_id=”Ellie Parkins”]

Hello! I’m Ellie, the Clinical Treatment Advisor at The Recover Clinic. Here at the clinic, we know how difficult it can be to ask for help, and particularly so when you have an eating disorder that pretends to be your best friend. I wanted to share some insight into the steps you can take to go from needing help to getting help with us.

  • Say hello

The first step is to get in touch by dropping me an email at or giving us a call. I see all the inquiries that come through, and will respond to you as soon as I can.

Depending on the information you’ve already shared, I may ask a few questions about what you’re going through and the treatment you may be looking for. It’s ok if you don’t yet know what you need – that’s what we’re here for!

  • Come and visit us

The next step is booking you in for an assessment. This is an informal chat with one of our trained therapists, where they will ask a little bit more about you and the treatment you may or may not have received in the past. All our therapists are lovely, so if you feel a bit nervous you don’t need to worry at all.

  • The right treatment for you

After your assessment we put our heads together and tailor a treatment program that’s structured exactly to your needs. We make sure that all programs are holistic, providing you with a variety of different treatments. You can find more about the different therapy we offer here. We will also ensure you see a one-to-one therapist that suits you.

We make it our absolute priority that you have all the treatment in place for you to fully recover from your eating disorder.

  • First day

As you’ve already been in for an assessment, you will know where our clinic is and what it looks like. But even so, we will make sure to meet you at the front door and introduce you to your first session. We know it can be daunting to embark on a journey away from your eating disorder, so we’re always available if you have any questions.

  • We’re always around

No matter what your program is like, we’re always here! My office is literally upstairs in the clinic, and I’ll always have time to catch up with how you’re finding your recovery journey.

If you yourself are looking for treatment, or know someone who is, feel free to give us a call at 0845 603 6530 or drop us an email at and I’ll get in touch soon.
