About Arthur House :

Arthur House is an innovative "preventative and secondary" eating disorder service based in Wimbledon, South West London. Providing an alternative to traditional Hospital treatment, this nine-bedded residential treatment centre provides cutting-edge therapies and 24/7 nursing support, offering a safe space for individuals to maintain a healthy relationship with food.

The aim is to prevent clients from requiring hospitalisation and to support those who have already received some initial residential support and want to carry on embedding the skills they have already acquired.

The service consists of both day care and residential treatment for adult male and females with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder (BED), or mixed eating disorder symptoms. We support people to increase their independence and empower each client to take responsibility for their social and emotional lives, as well as their general health and wellbeing.

We have nine single-occupancy bedrooms, a beautifully furnished lounge, fully functioning kitchen and a dining area providing a full community setting.

A key element of the treatment programme is community living, to help support our clients journey. We take advantage of our beautiful surroundings to support clients to make links with the local community, with a view to building a sense of identity and self-worth outside of that imposed on them by their eating disorder. This, in turn, can increase an individual's motivation for change and lead to improved outcomes around physical and mental health.
