Inspired by this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week, a previous client has written a poem about loneliness and shares her hope for those in eating disorder recovery.
Our alumni client shares her experience of intimacy and relationships in recovery from an eating disorder, demonstrating how recovery is so much more than improving your relationship to food, and in fact reaches into all areas of our lives.
Forging a space for creative expression is a huge part of our therapeutic approach at Orri. Here, one of our clients kindly shares a poem she wrote and brought to a group therapy session.
Poetry “forces us to confront our innermost thoughts and feelings…it provides a comfortable format to be able to share them with others”. Today, we share a poem written by one of our clients for a group therapy session with Senior Occupational Therapist, Kendra.
Our client shares a poem she wrote for her 27th birthday, “My body is now stronger, I am starting to find my voice.”
