Workshops and events.

Collaboration is important to us. By hosting regular events and workshops, we hope to extend our expertise outside the walls of our London centre.

Instagram Live with Romy Wakil, Senior Psychodynamic Psychotherapist

Wednesday 8th July, 18:45 – 19:15
Orri’s Instagram: @Orri_UK

Join Romy, Kerrie and Max as they discuss the relationship between trauma and eating disorders. To quote Romy recently:

“We live in a society which has normalised escaping our bodies. The education system is focused on the cognitive, serving to slowly disconnect young people from relating to their body. Dance, music, art – somatic based practices are not as highly regarded as the cognitive leading to more and more humans living in disconnect from our first and only constant home – our body – which carries our history in felt memories. For those who have experienced trauma, an eating disorder can serve as a protector – a means of disconnecting from the body and thereby disconnecting from the pain that is carried within.”

Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS) for Eating Disorders - CPD Seminar

Wednesday 9th September, 18:30 – 20:00
Orri, 14 Hallam Street, London, W1W 6JG

This seminar led by Paula Biles, MA, certified IFS Therapist and Consultant Supervisor at Orri, will explore the use of IFS therapy – already a widely used approach in the USA – for the treatment of eating disorders.

IFS is a non-pathologising systemic model which offers unique benefits to clients suffering from eating disorders. It offers a Self-leadership which allows the client and therapist to explore the internal system of the client and its protectors and polarisations in a uniquely validating and healing way.

Who is this event for?

This event is ideal for healthcare professionals, such as Psychotherapists, Psychologists and Psychiatrists, who are keen to learn more about approaches to treating eating disorders.

All ticket proceeds will be donated to Orri’s charity partner, Beat.
