For some people, maintaining a healthy weight range is a constant struggle. You may be overweight or obese, battle with losing or maintaining weight loss, have distorted body image or have troublesome eating patterns. All these issues have a negative impact on your health and wellbeing and can lead to feelings of depression, guilt and being ‘out of control’.
Symptoms of Weight Management Issues
Counselling can help with weight management if you:
Your Life Resolutions Psychologist can help support you in your weight management goals. Counselling can be effective in helping you learn ways to safely lose weight and maintain weight loss.
A psychologist can also assist you in setting realistic and achievable weight loss goals, developing the skills to manage setbacks or slip-ups, and encourage you to develop a more positive body image.
Life Resolutions also provides counselling for Eating Disorders.
Medicare rebates are available for psychological treatment by registered psychologists under the Australian Government’s Better Access to Mental Health Care initiative. This scheme provides considerable financial assistance to people living with mental health problems, allowing them greater access to psychologists and providing more affordable mental healthcare.
To access the Medicare Rebate, you need your GP, psychiatrist or paediatrician to complete a detailed mental health assessment and prepare a Mental Health Treatment Plan before referring you to a psychologist.
You may be eligible to receive Medicare rebates immediately into your bank account when paying for your session by cash, credit card, EFTPOS or cheque at all Life Resolutions locations.
Make an appointment today with a Life Resolutions Psychologist to help achieve your weight management goals.
