Bariatric Surgery

Are You Considering Bariatric Surgery or have you had Bariatric Surgery?

We know that patients can enjoy their weight loss, improved health & quality of life after surgery.
We also understand that sometimes positive change may require some lifestyle and psychological changes.
Some patients may experience a range of problems including:
Bariatric Surgery

  • pre-existing chronic depression and anxiety

  • relationship challenges

  • body image issues

  • fears of returning to old, unhealthy eating habits

We also know that some problems experienced pre-surgery may continue after surgery – as surgery itself does not automatically remove these…..

 

The support of a CBT Therapist to help you adjust to both the positive changes (pre and post surgery) and some of the challenges is available at Manchester Centre for CBT.

 

Our team of therapists can provide you with much needed individual support sessions tailored to your needs whether you are waiting for surgery or have experienced bariatric surgery.

 

Support sessions have been shown to directly increase the chances of short and long-term patient success following bariatric surgery.

 

Patients attending will have the opportunity to:

  • Consider issues to do with their prior history of weight gain/obesity

  • Discuss any personal or professional issues that arise from the consequences of bariatric surgery

  • Make sense of the role food plays in your life

  • Focus on learning a new relationship with food

  • Share any concerns about return to old eating habits

  • Explore body image issues

  • Gain support for any binge eating/bulimia problems

  • Identify self esteem/confidence issues

  • Consider any other mental health issues related to weight management and/or weight loss surgery adjustment.

If you are considering bariatric surgery or have undertaken surgery and want some psychological support then please contact us to make an appointment for an Assessment session with a therapist.
Assessment sessions cost 65.00 (inclusive of VAT) and any agreed subsequent sessions attending our specific programme for pre/post bariatric surgery patients costs 60.00 (inclusive of VAT) per session.
