Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for Weight Management

Losing weight and keeping it off can be a challenge. Diet and exercise are important components for healthy weight management. However, it can be a struggle to make changes that allow for managing weight. This struggle can be eased by adding a third component to the weight management process – learning to think and behave in ways that support weight management.

Skills can be learned that may help you stay on track and maintain gains, not just in the short term but for the rest of your life.  These skills may also help deal with difficulties that may arise such as slip-ups and cravings.

By purchasing this 2 session package you will learn both behavioural and cognitive (thinking) skills to assist you in achieving your weight management goals.

Session 1 (90 minutes; $200) entails:

  • Goal setting
  • Dealing with cravings, slips
  • Monitoring eating habits
  • Modifying eating habits
  • Recognizing hunger, satiation, and over-eating

Session 2 (50 minutes; $200) entails:

  • Learn to identify unhelpful thoughts
  • Learn to modify unhelpful thinking patterns

Once you have completed the core sessions (Session 1 and 2) of this package you have the option of signing up for the following 50 minute sessions ($200 each) listed below, based on your individual needs:

  • Follow-up Session
  • Review and work through challenges experienced
  • Review any skills from the core sessions
  • Worksheets that you may have completed between sessions can be brought in to review
