Dieting alone may not create lasting change. Weight Management counselling not only helps you explore your food options, it also focuses on how you relate to food and exercise.
You may have already experienced that there are two parts to you, the one who wants to change and the one who is keeping you the same. The one who wants to change may set a goal to adhere to a strict diet or exercise program or cut out all fast food but the one who wants to stay the same may struggle with this change and overtake again as soon as there is a small break in your resolution.

- Help you identify where you are on your journey toward change and why you are so reluctant to take the next steps
- Explore and change how you think about yourself, how you act, and circumstances that surround how you act can also help with weight management.
- Resolve any underlying emotional issues that might be driving your diet or exercise related behavior
Eating disorders are estimated to affect approximately 9% of the Australian population and that amount is increasing every year. Approximately 15% of Australian women experience an eating disorder during their lifetime.
This disorder is not limited to women with a increasing number of men seeking support for the disorder.
Many people who have eating disorders also present with depression, anxiety disorders, personality disorders or substance abuse problems.
Family members while not directly impacted are known to suffer along with the person with the disorder.
Eating disorders are associated with significant physical complications and increased mortality.
Eating disorders defy classification solely as mental illnesses as they not only involve considerable psychological impairment and distress, but they are also associated with wide-ranging and serious medical complications, which can affect every major organ in the body
