Join Our Counselling & Psychotherapy Team
We are recruiting for counsellors and psychotherapists to join our growing team of therapists. If you like working in a team, and you have interest and experience of working with weight issues and eating disorders, then we would love to hear from you.
WeightMatters was established back in 2005, and we now have 19 client-facing associates, and two London locations.

We are also looking for counsellors with a minimum 5-years post-qualification.
The way we manage therapy in a modern digital world is changing, so we are specifically looking for therapists who are confident working with digital technology, so they can manage notes and calendars through digital cloud systems, and who feel confident working with clients through Skype or FaceTime, in addition to traditional face-2-face work.
Training & Development
We run regular in-house training for our therapists, so you can expand your knowledge on how to work with weight, food, eating and body presentations.
We also run nutrition courses for our therapists, so you can learn some specific interventions that will help your work with clients.
Our training days is also a great opportunity for the whole WeightMatters team to get together, have some laughs, and feel connected to each other.
As a Nutritional Therapist working with clients to lose weight it is a privilege to be part of the team at WeightMatters. The integrated approach offered utilising psychotherapy and nutritional therapy together to achieve healing and optimal health is powerful. It provides expertise in related, but separate, areas providing for our clients clearer insight and a multi-pronged path to resolution.
It is a professional and empathetic team which James leads from the front with over 25 years of valuable experience in the industry. The support provided by the admin & accounts teams is efficient and competent, allowing me to focus on the work I do with nutrition.
I appreciate the attention that James pays to involving us all in not only growing the business, but also the importance of our own personal and professional growth. CPD events are provided in house and external events have also been supported.
And last, but not least, the staff parties are a blast!

Working at WeightMatters has been an amazing opportunity for me to practice with a diverse team of professionals; psychotherapists from different modalities, a nutritional therapist, a dietician, a psychiatrist and other highly skilled healthcare professionals.
I have attended invaluable training, both nutritional and psychotherapeutic, which has given me confidence and expertise to work with weight issues and eating disorders.
WeightMatters has a great team spirit, with imaginative and comfortable premises in the hub of London. I feel very connected here, to my clients, my team and the milieu I work in. I also appreciate and value the input into my own personal development.
I was delighted to be offered a placement at WeightMatters. I had heard excellent reports about it, and it has definitely lived up to my expectations and proved the right choice for me.
WeightMatters has provided me with access to rich, varied and complex client work, which has enabled me to grow and develop my therapeutic skills within a safe and supportive environment. Fortnightly supervision, and specific training and workshops relating to the field of weight, food, eating, nutrition and body image, have been great opportunities of learning and development.
The team and therapists are knowledgeable and encouraging. I personally find the whole placement process here to be a careful balance of professionalism, growth and personal autonomy. I would highly recommend Weightmatters for your psychotherapy placement.

We are looking for a graduate with fresh ideas to join our team, who has recently completed a degree in digital marketing. We have been providing internships for students from across the world, and we strongly believe in supporting individual growth and development.

I started my internship at WeightMatters in July 2016 hoping to gain some further insight on eating disorders. But I have gained vastly more. I was delighted to be part of a multi-disciplinary team of nutritionists, psychotherapists and a psychiatrist, and to learn from their work. I feel really privileged to have worked with such inspiring people.
Taking part in the clinic’s training days and workshops has offered me a unique experience on mental health issues.
I got to actively engage in the client support team, and offer help to people struggling with eating issues.
Not only has my experience been both fun and challenging, but James’ feedback for improving my skills is invaluable.
I believe this internship has helped me build my confidence and my potential in being a future therapist. I would highly recommend WeightMatters for anybody looking for an internship.
We are about to launch our new website, EmotionMatters, which provides general counselling and psychotherapy for all areas of mental health. This means all our therapists will benefit from a mix of clients coming from both the WeightMatters and EmotionMatters websites.
We are launching EmotionMatters in late April 2017, and we would like to have several new therapists trained and ready to see clients from May 2017.
As we continue to grow, so will the locations we offer. We are looking for therapists who are interested in working at both our Wigmore Street and City of London locations.
