CBT for weight management – self-directed

This course will give you the tools to overcome yo-yo dieting by applying the latest psychological tools based on Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). CBT is the most researched and evidence-based method which will transform how you approach weight management.

Each week you will cover a new topic which will change the way you relate to food, and at the end of this course , you will walk away your own personalised road map to healthy habits and a healthy mind.

The programme was developed by Susi Lodola, MSc, CBT Therapist, who is accredited with the IACP and a graduate member of the Psychological Society of Ireland. In addition to her studies in Psychology from UCD and Psychotherapy at IICP, Susi attended a workshop at the Beck Institute in Philadelphia to deepen her knowledge of applying CBT specifically to weight management.
