SpecialistsMr Chris Thompson
Psychology services are offered at SA Group of Specialists by Mr Chris Thompson and aim to assist patients considering weight loss surgery.
Bariatric surgery brings with it many changes, including to weight, eating, habits, routine, and often ways to cope or deal with emotion. Bariatric surgery patients are assisted to navigate these changes, towards being as physically and emotionally healthy as they can be - maximizing the benefits of surgery. Services are offered before and after bariatric surgery.
Sessions are individualized and may include helping to make changes in habits as well as an adaptive mindset to weight loss surgery. The aim is to help people bring in positive changes to their lifestyle and mindset prior to surgery, move forward to surgery confidently, and assist patients to thrive post-surgery.
Appointments are offered throughout the week as well as after hours and on weekends, via phone and tele-health (skype or facetime), which offers flexibility, convenience and effectiveness.
