  • Bio

Sophie Nesbitt and Lucia Giombini are both Clinical Psychologists working at Rhodes Wood Hospital, Inpatient Service for Children and Adolescent with Eating Disorders, Elysium Healthcare.

They have both worked extensively with young people with eating disorders using various different treatment approaches such as cognitive behaviour therapy and motivational enhancement therapy.

Most recently they have introduced the delivery of cognitive remediation therapy in the service, a therapy focusing on the process of thoughts rather than the content. They are currently working in collaboration with Kings College, Institute of Psychiatry on the development of the evidence supporting the effectiveness of this approach.
