A new psychology and nutrition centre Anocen was newly opened in February 2022 in Ústí nad Labem in an effort to help eating disorder patients. The centre focuses on children age up to 18. It is very surprising how often we find the real cause of the disease in their family background. Therefore, we came up with a new approach – in addition to individual therapies, we also offer a family psychology. There are follow-up services such as nutritional therapy or physiotherapy as a part of the treatment.

The most common diseases are anorexia and bulimia. The first means that the patient refuses any food, while a bulimia patient suffers from overeating attacks followed by guilt and subsequent self-induced vomiting. There are other eating disorders such as bigorexia, when the affected person feels that they are insufficiently muscular. The orthorexia patient is excessively dependent on a healthy diet and clean organic food.

The Anocen centre for psychology and nutrition is a project of Centrum podpory zdraví, z.ú. it is a part of the Health Program, funded by the EEA/Norway Funds – 2014-2021.

Ing. Lenka Plzáková, DiS.


I graduated from the University of Chemistry and Technology in Prague, specializing in Chemistry and Food Analysis. Subsequently, I completed the study program of Nutritional Therapy at the Higher Vocational School in Most, which allows me to work with clients who have health issues. I began my practice in nutrition with adults, but I was always more interested in the area of child nutrition. That’s why, in 2012, I founded a non-profit organization called Health Support Center, which includes Anocen as a part of it. The goal of this organization was to address children’s nutrition comprehensively within a multidisciplinary team, incorporating not only nutritional therapy but also psychological and movement interventions.
