Binge Eating Disorder Group

A specialist online therapy group, running in 12-week cycles, designed for those living with binge eating disorder.

Hello. Welcome to Orri.

Binge eating disorder (BED) can be an incredibly challenging illness to live with. However, we we know that it is treatable and that recovery is possible.

Our team have designed a specialist online therapy group for those who wish to break free from binge eating disorder.

There’s no ‘one way’ to have BED, but there are shared symptoms that can help with a diagnosis and treatment, including:

  • Feeling as though you’re eating uncontrollably
  • Eating in secret, perhaps concealing food or wrappers
  • Preoccupation with body image or appearance
  • Rituals or rigidity with food
  • Low self-esteem and feelings of guilt, shame or self-disgust
  • Depression and/or other co-occurring conditions, such as anxiety or OCD

You might feel as though you have tried every single treatment or meal plan in the world. Perhaps you’ve ‘yo-yo’ dieted for as long as you can remember, believing that you were struggling with ‘willpower’ or ‘discipline’ with food.

You might have mistakenly blamed yourself and suffered greatly with your mental health as a result.  If so, this group is for you.

This might be your first time reaching out for eating disorder treatment, or, you might feel like you’ve had lots of support before. Wherever you find yourself, we’ll meet you there.

Our treatment is rated ‘Outstanding’ by the CQC.

Group therapy: a tool for recovery

Eating disorders thrive in isolation. We often hear that people with BED feel trapped in a cycle of bingeing and restricting, and feelings of shame, guilt and fear can arise as we experience behaviours that feel very out of control.

Group therapy is an incredibly powerful tool in eating disorder recovery. Whilst it may seem daunting at first, having your experience heard and shared as part of a collective can undo the shame and isolation that keeps someone trapped in an eating disorder.

The group is “contained” by an expert therapist, meaning that the members feel held together safely, and there is an emphasis on building trust together.

Designed specifically for BED

People with binge eating disorder can often struggle with emotional regulation, and this can manifest in behaviours with food as eating becomes a means of self-soothing during moments of emotional distress.

Therapy looks to understand the underlying function of bingeing and restricting and illuminate the triggers that lead to feelings of acute emotional distress that are challenging to cope with.

While our group is structured around specific themes and topics that arise for individuals with BED, the focus of the group will also move organically according to what’s arising for individual group members week on week. This fluidity ensures clients have their experience heard, held and shared with others.
