Orri Together, online.
Nurturing hope, strengthening recovery
Orri Together is an Online Specialist Day Programme delivered by renowned eating disorder professionals and tailored according to your individual needs.
The programme supports you with your eating disorder recovery when in-person treatment is not possible and helps to address your recovery goals through ongoing, consistent support and care from Orri’s specialist team.
Our dynamic online team consists of Psychotherapists, Psychiatrists, Occupational Therapists, Dietitians and Case Managers with extensive experience in delivering online treatment. By offering an online treatment programme, you can stay present in your day-to-day life and connected to your loved ones whilst nurturing hope and strengthening your recovery.
Orri Together Online is the most holistic treatment I’ve ever experienced. I’m so grateful for the support, skill and dedication of the staff who truly design a unique programme for each person. I was apprehensive about online treatment but have found it invaluable to work on my eating disorder in my home environment.
How the programme works
The programme works to deepen your understanding of your eating disorder as well as address the underlying difficulties.
Clients are invited to attend daily, between Monday-Friday, logging into a series of groups supported meals, workshops and planning sessions.
Each day will focus on different themes that aim to keep you working towards your individual recovery goals. This includes: offering support with being at home, creating a safe space, managing isolation, planning your days, and ensuring menu choices are recovery-focused. We also explore body image challenges, distress and stressful situations as well as your personal recovery needs.
I am proud of how much I’ve changed as a person from the teachings of Orri and that all areas of my life are progressing; food, relationships, health, body image and thought processes. It has highlighted what it important in my life and I feel as if I am on the right path now, whereas I was unsure before of what the right direction was.
Three or five-day week programmes from 10am-5pm, consisting of:
- Specialist therapy groups
- Nutrition groups
- Meal support
- One weekly individual or family therapy session
- Bi-weekly sessions with a registered Dietitian
- Recovery Record mobile app for mood and food tracking, keeping clients connected to their clinicians
Physical health management, oversight and GP liaison will be provided. Supported weigh-ins are available for clients at their request.
This is your journey.
Every four weeks the team will ‘meet’ with you for a programme review, offering both clients and their carers a space to think together about the challenges they are facing during this time.
The sessions are run through a secure, encrypted software, ensuring therapy sessions are confidential and protected. Full IT support is available.
Families and carers
Families and carers have ongoing support via a phone call or Zoom video call. This support is practical and “in action”, helping with family dynamics, menu planning and supporting emotional difficulties.
Orri Online has been a godsend during these uncertain times. With feelings of both physical and emotional isolation so strong, it is for many the perfect environment for an eating disorder to take control. I am incredibly grateful to have the opportunity to remain supported by the team and held accountable for my recovery – despite the change in physical proximity. The delivery of the service may have changed, but I still feel the strength that the team can see in me just as strongly.

Step 4: Time to start your recovery. Following these appointments, we will agree the amount of days for your online programme and arrange a conversation with those supporting you in recovery. We know this is often a time of high anxiety, and as such, the team are on hand to support you every step of the way.
