Our mission is to help you lose weight, by changing your relationship with food and towards yourself, so you can start building the lifestyle you want.

We provide psychological input into the 6 month weight loss programme. We aim to teach you skills to help you:

  • Understand and cope with change
  • Understand why you eat
  • Cope with difficult food urges more effectively
  • Build a lifestyle you enjoy

We also provide psychological assessment and intervention before and after weight-loss (bariatric) surgery.

We also support for individuals with complex issues related to obesity such as:
