Individual Therapy Programmes
A safe space for you to explore who you are, one-to-one.
Individual therapy sessions are confidential, safe spaces for you to explore the different aspects of who you are, your eating disorder, and your goals for recovery.
Sessions are led by expert clinicians who offer a trusting and non-judgmental relationship, helping you feel seen, heard, and understood in your experience.
Our approach creates space to understand the underlying causes of the eating disorder whilst healing the behavioural symptoms in tandem, ensuring long-term, sustainable eating disorder recovery.
We do this through a number of evidence-based and innovative approaches that meet your needs and evolve with you over time.
“The support I have received at Orri has been beyond amazing. The therapy is the best I’ve ever experienced, and I have been treated with respect, compassion and kindness throughout.”
Who we help
We support individuals aged 16 years + with a suspected or diagnosed eating disorder, across the spectrum of acuity.
We treat all eating disorders including:
- Binge Eating Disorder
- ARFID (Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder)
- OSFED (Other Specified Feeding or Eating Disorder)
We also treat the co-occurring conditions that can often exist with an eating disorder, including anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, trauma, and personality disorders. We also support clients with neurodivergent needs.
“From our first meeting I knew my child would be in the safest hands. Orri gave my daughter the confidence and strength to face recovery. I will be forever grateful.”
Parent of Client
Outpatient treatment plans are built bespoke and in collaboration with each individual client.
Following an assessment with our specialist team, we’ll create a plan that is comprised of a selection of the following sessions, depending upon your needs and goals for recovery:
Psychotherapy / Psychology
Somatic and body-based therapies
Individual carer psychotherapy
Family Therapy and Individual Carer Psychotherapy may be accessed whether your loved one is attending Orri’s treatment or not.
Who are our outpatient services for?
Eating disorders impact people in different ways. Our outpatient services support people across the spectrum of acuity throughout their recovery journey.
Outpatient services can support:
- First concerns: Individuals who have started experiencing symptoms of an eating disorder and need support.
- Staged recovery: Those who have completed intensive day treatment, or other treatment, and are ready to navigate the next phase of their recovery.
- Deeper exploration: Individuals who have been living with an eating disorder for a long time and would like to explore the underlying issues contributing to an unhealthy relationship with food and the body.
- Parents and loved ones: Family and individual carer psychotherapy can be beneficial to all involved, providing space and support to explore their own experience.
Different sessions for different needs
Individual psychotherapy happens within the context of a safe and confidential relationship with a therapist who is non-judgmental, compassionate, and committed to your individual recovery. Together, you’ll gain insight into your eating disorder and the underlying causes, and develop new skills that lessen the hold of the eating disorder.
Occupational therapy helps build resilience in daily life. Our Occupational Therapists take a holistic view of each individual, with a particular interest in your environment and daily activities (or “occupations”). Working alongside you, our therapists help identify areas where you may need more support and facilitate therapeutic interventions that bring a sense of autonomy and connection.
We do dietetics a little differently at Orri. We do not talk about calories, nor do we lay down rules. Instead, our Dietitians focus on finding freedom with food, looking at individual progress rather than the food itself, so that each person can thrive at their own pace.
Somatic & Body-Based Therapies
Our range of body-based therapies help unify the mind and body, using a combination of yoga, mindfulness and meditation. These sessions help you to reconnect your body to your feelings to find safety in the body through greater awareness and nervous system regulation.
It is a unique and, at times, challenging role to be a parent or loved one of someone living with an eating disorder. There can be a lot of tension as we witness those we love going through hardship, and this can impact the quality of our relationships. Family Therapy provides a unique space to explore and resolve relational dynamics and find strengths that unite the family in their experience of recovery.
Individual Carer Psychotherapy
Individual Carer Psychotherapy sessions are confidential and safe spaces for a carer or loved one of someone with an eating disorder to explore their personal experience with a qualified and experienced Family or Systemic Therapist. Your loved one may be attending Orri’s treatment or attending elsewhere. Either way, this is a space to explore your own experience of “recovery”.
Psychiatry is a branch of medicine specifically concerned with mental health. Our team of specialist eating disorder Psychiatrists offer world-class medical care to ensure the safety of our clients.
