If you are struggling with achieving or maintaining weight loss, you are not alone. Current research shows that the majority of Australians are overweight. Of the people that do achieve weight loss, more than 80% of them will regain it within 1 year.
Traditional diet and weight loss programs do not address the underlying reasons that people eat in the first place – unless these issues are identified and managed, weight loss efforts are unlikely to be achieved or sustained.
Psychological treatment can uncover these reasons, and deal with them directly. You may have habitual thought patterns or an unhealthy relationship with food that gets in the way. Perhaps you self-sabotage. For others, eating may have become a stress management tool or a coping mechanism for painful emotions.
Angela can work with you to identify and manage these issues. Individual and group treatment options are available.
