How will Shrink weight management help me?

Shrink provides you with an opportunity to manage weight loss, and ongoing weight management, with our team of professionals who want to understand you and the relationship you have with food. Our nutrition team will guide you on how to balance nutrition and health, at the same time as a therapist will help you explore your thoughts, feelings and emotions around food and eating. We will support you on your weight loss journey, and help you build a better relationship with your body and your weight.

Is Shrink for me?

Shrink is designed for people who struggle to lose weight. If you have been on a very low calorie diet, lost several stones, and then put all the weight back on again and more, then Shrink is for you.

If you feel your eating is disordered or chaotic in some way, or maybe you sabotage your own weight loss efforts, Shrink can help. Do you reach for food to soothe your emotions or stress, then Shrink will help you take care of yourself in a healthier way.

It is the unique close relationship and teamwork of our psychological and nutritional teams, working together to support you, that makes Shrink a successful and popular weight management programme.

Testimonials

Lucretia’s story is typical of our clients who have struggled with weight throughout their lives. With our support, they have changed their headspace, feel more in control around their eating, and have found peace and happiness in themselves.

I cannot thank the WeightMatters team enough for giving me back my life.

"When I first came across the WeightMatters practice I had no idea that it would signal the start of a new life for me. I had struggled with an eating disorder and obesity for 25 years, and truly felt that I could never recover or change. Having spent years (and a significant amount of money) on failed weight loss attempts, I was stuck and had finally reached my breaking point.

However, from the moment I walked into the WeightMatters Practice, I knew that it was different. Finally, I had met an amazing group of people who truly understood and cared. Over the next few months, through the Shrink programme, I began my recovery. I came to terms with the fact that my relationship with food was much deeper than simply overindulging. I felt valued and heard for the first time in my life and I finally faced some very difficult experiences and emotions.

In terms of my own health and nutrition, I feel completely re-educated. I, and in fact my whole family, have enjoyed experimenting with new and varied tastes. Sitting with my children and enjoying a meal together used to be so rare, but is now a daily occurrence.

My weight loss journey has just begun, but now I feel like a different person. I have been given the confidence to believe in myself and the tools to change what I need to change, and I have no doubt that this time I will succeed.

I cannot thank the WeightMatters team enough for giving me back my life."
