Food serves many purposes other than just keeping us alive.

Many people are in a battle with weight and are sick of the fight. For some individuals addressing the underlying psychological issues related to weight management can prove highly effective. For others bariatric surgery assists to gain control as well addressing unhelpful patterns.
Factors such as dysfunctional eating patterns, depression and anxiety as well as poor self-esteem can impact upon weight. Addressing psychological issues either pre or post surgery, can facilitate weight loss and improve mental health.
