Students and working professionals.
Who are these programmes for?
Whatever your situation, we know how hard it is to admit you’re struggling, and there’s likely a big part of you that doesn’t want to reach out for fear of what treatment will entail. So, be proud of taking this first step.
At Orri, we understand that there’s no “one way” to have an eating disorder. They manifest in different ways, meaning that they are unique to the individual and anyone can develop one. You may not “tick all the boxes” of a diagnosis and you may be managing to maintain your studies or career, whilst secretly struggling.
A lack of understanding has led to a mistaken rhetoric that people need to be “thin enough” to receive treatment and have life-threatening symptoms. This is not the case: there’s no such thing as “not being ill enough” for treatment. The earlier you reach out for support, the quicker your recovery is likely to be and without relapse.
What can I expect?
We’ve developed a specialist approach to treating eating disorders that tends to your individual needs in a flexible and personalised way.
These programmes are built around you and your personal goals for life and recovery. Our assessment will determine the level of support you require considering your existing commitments, and your programme will include a selection of the following:
- Psychotherapy, Psychology and Occupational Therapy
- Dietetics, meals and specialist mealtime support
- Group Therapy
- Family Therapy
- Psychiatry & Nursing
Rather than remove you from the familiarity of your everyday life, we will build a programme that allows you to gain more from your existing experiences. You can read more about our treatment here.
Why will this approach work for me?
By continuing to live in your home and work whilst attending our programme you’ll remain connected to your everyday life. This means that as you learn different skills at Orri, you can practice them independently, away from our centre, and talk through any issues with us as and when they arise.
Taking this flexible and personalised approach means that we can provide the right level of support as you increasingly return to your life without treatment.

We’re here to talk it through, whenever you’re ready.
We believe early access to specialist treatment for eating disorders is crucial to recovery.
If you sense that something isn’t right, but you’re unsure if you have an eating disorder, we can help.
