How does Weight Loss Psychotherapy Work?

We understand that it’s really difficult to lose weight and keep it off.

People over-eat for many reasons, and often these reasons are not addressed during the process of traditional dieting or weight-loss classes.

The Green Rooms has developed a specialised Weight Loss Psychotherapy model which supports you to deal with the underlying reasons for overeating and/or binging in addition to changing your eating and exercise behaviours.

Together we will uncover the reasons behind your current eating patterns, and we will challenge these self-destructive behaviours.

We will support you to establish a new perspective on food and eating. We will create opportunities to change your habits forever and see sustained weight loss.

We also use basic Nutritional Therapy tests to determine if there are any physiological barriers to you losing weight. For example: mineral deficiency, low stomach acid, compromised digestion, unstable blood sugar.

We are up-to-date with scientific research studies on weight loss (active and sustained), and will offer the relevant information to you. Often understanding the science can be motivating as it helps you feel more in control.

What Qualifications do Weight Loss Psychotherapists hold?


Our Weight Loss Psychotherapists all hold the following qualifications:

  • MSc Counselling and/or Psychotherapy
  • BSc HONS in one or more Sciences
  • Accredited Nutrition Course Certificate

This is to ensure that they are skilled and experienced enough to help you explore the psychological element of your own weight loss difficulties, and, understand the scientific research studies that we use.

How many Weight Loss Psychotherapy Sessions will I need?

The number of sessions that you would require depends on the extent of your current difficulties and how ready you are to make changes.

If you feel ready to make a difference and ready to start loving and respecting your body, there is no reason why using The Green Rooms Weight Loss Psychotherapy Model wouldn’t be of huge benefit to you.

We WILL NOT sell you pre-packed meals, drinks, supplements, etc. This model is about understanding yourself and your body more fully, learning to make healthy choices and learning how to motivate yourself.

We do not weigh you at the sessions, however you are welcome to keep track of your weight if you wish. We are more interested in how you look and feel, than the number on the scales.

We can accommodate all dietary requirements and preferences.
