Weight Management Psychology Twelve Month Transformation
Tired of weight yo-yoing, being on and off diets or unsustainable 6-12 week exercise regimes?
Want to have a healthier body, mind, and relationship with food and activity that is sustainable?
Want to make a New Year’s Resolution that will leave you happier, healthier, and proud of your 2016 achievements?
Join the New Years Revolution!
Weight Management Psychology have teamed up with our good friends Tree of Life Nutrition and Physique Science to provide you with a transformational, person-friendly, and sustainable answer! Resulting in holistic improvements in wellbeing, the Twelve Month Transformation gives you time to make changes in natural, sensible, and sustainable ways. Following a psychologically informed, non-dieting, sustainable physical activity approach, delivered by a team of specialist professionals, your success will be measured, continuing throughout the whole year, and result in changes that last for life!
Rather than sign you up for a whole program, the Twelve Month Transformation involves regular assessments of progress, and a series of individual sessions, group activities, and short programs focusing on various psychological, nutritional, and physical changes you can pick and choose from. As we want to make 2016 transformational for you, we strongly encourage you make a real health focus and do every element – but ultimately your involvement is up to you!

You can also investigate a Mental Health Care Plan referral from your GP, which gives 10 Medicare-rebated sessions over with Glenn (Medicare rebate of $84.80/session).
