About Us


About us

WeightMatters launched in 2005, and since then we have helped thousands of clients positively change their lives, particularly in their relationship to food, eating, weight and their body.

Back then our Founder, and current Clinical Director, James Lamper, set up WeightMatters to provide a space where people could receive targeted psychological and nutritional support for all types of weight issues.

Today we are proud to claim we are the UK’s leading therapy centre for weight, food, eating and health issues. We base this on our 15 years of experience, positive outcomes for our clients, and our commitment to always learn and develop, and improve the treatment we provide.


We care about our clients, and we want you to feel better. We understand that life can be challenging – work, relationships, stress, trauma, bereavement – and as a result, some people distort their relationship with food as a way of coping.

Let us help you understand why you are stuck with unhelpful patterns of eating behaviour, and support you in developing new skills and tools so you can manage life’s ups and downs without reaching for food as comfort, control, distraction or protection.

We have an amazing team of practitioners who can help you with all aspects of mental health and wellbeing. From anxiety and depression, stress management and relationship issues, to immunity and diabetes, we’ve got things covered.

A great first step is to arrange a call with our friendly and experienced assessment team. They will listen carefully to what is going on for you, and then explain how our services can support you.
