Clear Mind CBT Harrogate

CBT for Weight Loss

Have you ever tried to lose weight or eat more healthily and found that you do well for a couple of weeks and then your motivation goes, the cravings take over and you go back to bad habits? Have you tried loads of different diets but not been able to find one that works for you? 

 

We all know how to lose weight, eat less, move more. So why is such a simple principal so difficult to stick to? The key lies in your thought patterns; how you think about food and how you think about yourself in relation to food. Clear Mind CBT can help you to make changes to those patterns so that you are able to develop a more positive relationship with food and with yourself.

 

There have been hundreds of studies that have found that CBT can aid weight loss and it is recommended by the NHS (https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/obesity/treatment/), however there are very few therapists in the UK that specialise in this area. Clear Mind CBT have developed a weight loss for CBT programme which the focuses on the psychology of food and weight loss rather than another diet. Together we can look at ways to change how you think about food so that you’re able to develop patterns of healthy eating and stick to them forever, without it always feeling like a battle. We can look at improving motivation and willpower, resisting those urges and helping you to lose weight and keep it off.

  • About the way your thoughts can affect your relationship with food
  • Techniques to adapt those thoughts and improve that relationship
  • Strategies to improve motivation and make it easier to achieve your goals
