Our Values

Weight Management Psychology is a psychology-based, person-centred, interdisciplinary, progressive weight management clinic.  They are a lot of words!  What do they mean?

  • Psychology-based.  Many people feel the mind is the most important element of weight management.  But most people don’t dedicate a lot of time, energy, and resources to training their minds.  At WMP we help you train your most important muscle – your brain!
  • Person-centred.  Most weight management programs are weight-centred.  This can result in obsession with food and exercise, psychological health problems, and weight regain.  At WMP we help you “zoom out” from the scales and focus on yourself as a whole person!
  • Interdisciplinary. While we believe psychology is the missing piece of the puzzle, we know it’s not the only piece.  We support you with a team of like-minded, understanding, and caring nutrition and movement professionals.
  • Progressive.  As seen by the below graph, common diet and exercise plans don’t work so well in the long-term, even when supplemented by traditional psychological approaches.  We like to support you with traditional psychological methods and innovative evidence based ones, like as tapping and hypnosis.
