Obesity is a major public health problem and it has more than doubled across the world since 1980. If present trends continue, by 2025, 33% of adults in Ireland will be obese. Various treatments of obesity such as diets, exercise, medication and surgery have not been successful in treating obesity. In addition, weight that has been lost is often regained and often dieters regain more weight than they have initially lost. According to the World Health Organisation, nearly all adults return regain weight within five years.

There is an ever-increasing demand for alternatives to traditional weight loss programmes which only focus on what to eat more of and what to eat less of. The reason for this is that the cause of obesity involves a complex interaction between genetic, behavioral–psychosocial, and environmental factors. As a Mind over Body Weight Management programme licensed therapist you can you’re your clients to retrain their behaviours and thought processes by applying CBT and Motivational Interviewing skills to help your clients make lasting lifestyle changes. Those methods are recommended by international clinical guidelines, as they have been shown to be more effective that diet alone.

Testimonials from professionals who attended the CBT & MI workshops

Melissa Hanley – Psychotherapist

I have attended Susi’s first two day IACP accredited workshop on applying Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing with clients to support them in changing their lifestyle and to lose weight. Susi was a fantastic presenter and the content of the workshop was not only evidence based research but reflected on people’s experiences also. I am eager to implement the skills and what I have learned from Susi in my clinical practice to help my clients gain insight into their relationship with food and overall well-being. Thank you susi for providing not only your knowledge in this area but for a really engaging and interesting workshop. I can highly recommend this to nutritionists, dieticians, nurses, counselors and psychotherapists to inform their practice. Thanks susi

Frances Walsh – Psychotherapist

I attended Susi’s first 2-day IACP accredited workshop on applying CBT and MI in working with clients with issues around food/weight. Susi is a very engaging trainer, the materials she presented are well researched and evidence-based, and the workshop was interactive and informative. The training will be particularly helpful for psychotherapists or nutritional therapists in working with clients with emotional eating behaviours and in changing mindsets to decrease sabotaging behaviours. Thank you Susi

Barbara Edwards – Life Coach

I am delighted that I decided to attend Susi’s workshop. I got so much from it and I can’t wait to implement it through my coaching practice here in Donegal. Susi delivers in such a relaxed and informative way making the learning a thoroughly engaging and enjoyable process. Highly recommended. Thank you so much Susi

Aine Connaire – Psychotherapist

I just attended Susi’s mind over body workshop for professionals and would highly recommend it to any psychotherapists or nutritionists who are interested in learning more about how to help their clients develop a healthy lifestyle and improve their relationship with themselves and their health. I learnt so much and gained loads of information and tools that I am looking forward to using with my clients in my own work as a psychotherapist. Thanks Susi!

Olivia Beck – Nutritionist

Susi is very knowledgeable about the role CBT plays in weight management. As a practitioner, she’s given me practical tools that I can utilise in my business as a Nutritionist.
