Psychology is one of the three specialist elements that you will learn about during the programme. We understand how difficult it can be to manage weight and how it is different for everyone.

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

  • 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.


Here’s what some of our service users have found useful about the psychology part of the programme:

“Receiving good knowledge about making changes in my life.”
“Understanding the relationship between food and mind and it’s impact upon weight.”
“It put me in the right mind space.”
“Talking about important things in my life and that is OK to lapse.”
“Learning to be more compassionate to myself.”
