Why see a psychologist?


Psychologists are experts in human behaviour. They help people understand their thoughts, feelings and behaviours and develop the skills needed to improve their wellbeing and prevent future problems. Clinical health psychology can assist in simultaneously improving health behaviours and mental health. Clinical psychologists specialise in the treatment of mental health problems such as depression, anxiety and eating disorders. Effective treatment, such as cognitive behaviour therapy, can help alleviate the symptoms of mental health problems and enhance quality of life. Health psychologists are specialise in the psychological aspects of health, health problems and health behaviour change. Effective treatment, such as cognitive behaviour therapy, can help establish healthier behaviours, improve health, and enhance quality of life.

What is the CEWBI philosophy on weight, shape and body image concerns?


We offer client-centred, evidence-based treatment for eating, weight, and body image concerns. In most cases we use behavioural and cognitive behavioural therapies as they have the strongest evidence base for treating of these concerns.
We take a weight inclusive, non-dieting approach to our work. This includes accepting and respecting the diversity of body shapes and sizes and promoting all aspects, physical, psychological and social, of health and wellbeing for people of all sizes. We promote healthy eating that considers nutritional needs, hunger, satiety, appetite, and pleasure, as well as appropriate, enjoyable, life-enhancing physical activity.
