Lighthouse Centre intensive eating disorder service - Norfolk and Waveney

NSFT logo

The Lighthouse Centre, based at Hellesdon Hospital in Norwich, provides intensive treatment for young people aged between 11 and 18.

Staff at the centre work with young people and their families to provide a combination of therapeutic family, individual and group work, education and practical support, including meal coaching.

Young people attend group sessions to work through common issues such as perfectionism, anxiety, difficulties managing change, rigid thinking patterns and emotional over-regulation. One-to-one nursing and psychological interventions, along with family therapy and carer support, are available to help parents and carers understand how to offer support to their loved ones at home while improving relationships and wellbeing.

The team at the centre can care for up to 10 young people from across Norfolk and Waveney at a time. Our aim is to help young people manage and improve their condition at home while reducing the need for them to be admitted to an inpatient unit.
