Find Weight loss Therapists & Counselors in Riverside, IL.

 

Weight is a complicated issue. We are surrounded by advertisements about what bodies should look like, messages that reinforce negative feelings and shame. You may want to lose weight for health reasons, or you may just want to feel better about yourself and your body. Weight loss therapists can help you set goals, change behaviors, and discover love for your body no matter what it looks like.

Often, the inability to lose weight is connected to an underlying mental issue, which leads people to explore behavioral health treatment. Weight loss therapy can help reveal your barriers to weight loss and provide you with tools to help you reach your weight loss goals. Whether you are located in downtown Riverside, the suburbs of Riverside, other nearby places such as Berwyn, Hines, or anywhere else in Illinois, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

How Weight Loss Therapy Can Help You

Whether you’ve never been able to lose weight or haven’t been able to keep the weight off, weight loss therapy can help immensely. There are several ways that weight loss therapy can set you on the path to weight loss success, and they include:

  • Setting healthy, reasonable weight loss goals.
  • Exploring your mental state and any issues that prevent you from making the choices you want to make.
  • Providing you with actionable tips and skills, leaving you more capable of reaching your weight loss goals.
  • Giving you the emotional support you need throughout the weight loss process.
  • Challenging shame and self-doubt associated with the way your body looks.

If weight loss is important to you, gain some additional insight by reading licensed therapist Janette Marsac’s advice about the reasons why we gain weight and how to be kind to ourselves.
