“In essence, intimacy is about connecting with our body.”

Often, eating disorders draw an individual away from their body, loosening the human connection and intimate feelings that come from this entirely.

Romy shares how she facilitates group therapy at Orri, where she helps clients to reconnect with their bodies – by ‘anchoring’ them in the moment – and by setting a comfortable pace where discussions, such as sex and intimacy, can take place.
