Learn about weight management
Weight is something that many people struggle with. You may be finding it difficult to maintain a healthy body weight, or you may just be lacking the confidence to feel good about your body as it currently is. You are not alone. With all of the temptations and pressure of our society, the ease of access to “fast” food, and the busy lives that many of us live, it is difficult to remain in control of our weight and on top of our health.
So, if this is something that so many people experience, at what point should you seek help? The answer is that there is no right time, and as soon as you notice any of following things then it may be helpful for you to get professional support.
Your lack of self-esteem and confidence may be starting to affect your relationships, your work or even your day-to-day wellbeing
You may have experienced a health scare or been warned of the dangers of your weight from your doctor
You may be feeling physically tired, sore or unable to do the things that you used to do
You have not have been able to successfully stick out any of the diets or programs that you have previously attempted
Experiencing this continual battle with weight can cause both physical and mental harm. If you are at an unhealthy weight which is substantially lower or higher than it should be, then you are at a greater risk for health problems. You may also be at a healthy weight, but continue to feel unhappy with your body to the point that it is taking a toll on your confidence and self-esteem.
If the “quick fix” approaches weren’t able to help, what will make this any different? How can a psychologist make a lasting change in a way that a fad diet or exercise program was unable to? A psychologist will work with you to find a long-term solution by helping you to understand the root of the problem, and put evidence-based approaches in place to help you change your lifestyle for good.
It is tempting to embrace quick fixes or the latest diet trend to manage your weight, but these are often temporary solutions and fail to address the real source of weight problems. Our practitioners will help you reach your goal weight and keep you there too, by helping you to understand how thought patterns and behaviours impact your weight management journey.
Our psychologists can assist you with establishing positive weight management strategies that last a lifetime. Our team can help by:
Providing insight into personality factors that contribute to over and under eating
Teaching the benefits of adequate nutrition, and ways to achieve this
Setting goals and working through these each week, and tackling any hurdles that you come across along the way
Examining lifestyle factors that can assist in weight management, including family, friends, colleagues, and positive social support networks
Building confidence and self-esteem to feel great about yourself again, and to motivate you to work towards your goals
Gradually implementing long-term changes which are based on evidence, but also developed into methods that are personalised to your own preferences and abilities
