How  Can  CBT  Effectively  Help  With  Weight  Management?  

Insights  from  Harley  Street  psychologist,  Dr  Vanessa  Ruspoli  

 

Introduction  

Many  people  feel  unhappy  with  their  bodies,  which  can  lead  to  complex  psychological  issues.  Tackling  

weight  loss  related  psychological  issues  is  more  likely  to  have  positive,  long  term  results  if  it  is  

approached  from  a  cognitive  behavioural  standpoint  using  Cognitive  Behavioural  Therapy  (CBT).  This  is  a  

common  therapy  that  has  been  proven  to  help  with  self-­‐esteem,  body  image  and  weight  management.  

 

 

Self  Esteem          

•  

then  creates  rules  for  living  that  allows  them  to  avoid  situations  that  trigger  difficult  aspects  of  that  self-­‐

appraisal.  

CBT  can  be  effective  for  low  self-­‐esteem,  which  stems  from  negative  self-­‐appraisal  and  a  person  

•  

enhancing  self-­‐acceptance  and  reducing  self-­‐criticism.    

CBT  re-­‐evaluates  a  person’s  rules  for  living  through  cognitive  techniques  and  works  on  

•  

challenging  it  or  developing  skills  of  communication  so  the  person  with  low  self-­‐esteem  can  better  

express  themselves  and  assert  their  rights  and  preferences.    

Behavioural  experiments  vary  depending  on  the  issue,  but  often  involve  talking  about  the  issue,

Body  Image  

•  

effective  is  addressing  and  adjusting  a  person’s  body  image  with  improvements  being  maintained  over  

significant  periods  of  time.    

Body  image  is  the  attitude  and  perception  a  person  has  in  relation  to  their  body,  and  CBT  is  

•  

and  exercises  that  are  elaborated  upon  in  therapy.  Worksheets  are  also  used  that  consider  cognitive  and  

behavioural  elements.    

It  uses  a  variety  of  cognitive  and  behavioural  techniques,  often  involving  homework,  using  books  

•  

and  assign  homework  tasks  to  encourage  a  client  to  think  about  what  like  about  their  appearance,  or  

notice  positive  things  they  have  done  in  a  week  that  made  them  feel  good  about  themselves.    

Therapists  may  ask  their  clients  to  challenge  their  core  beliefs  associated  with  their  body  image,

Weight  Management  

•  

bringing  awareness  to  behaviours  that  lead  to  weight  problems.  It  teaches  new  skills  and  tests  beliefs,  

giving  clients  the  tools  for  learning  new  behaviours  that  are  more  conducive  to  good  weight  

management.    

CBT  works  by  challenging  unhealthy  ideas  and  beliefs  that  support  problems  with  weight,  

•  

and  there  are  a  variety  of  skills  that  might  be  associated  with  all  of  these  interrelated  issues  such  as  

emotional  expression  and  mood  regulation.    

Some  modalities  like  enhanced  CBT  targets  external  factors  that  can  be  associated  with  weight,  

•  

the  client  to  acknowledge  other  personal  and  interpersonal  needs  that  the  weight  issues  might  have  

been  masking.  It  can  help  the  client  to  become  positively  aware  of  their  body  and  achieve  goals  in  a  

realistic  and  attainable  way.    

CBT  helps  identify  emotions  and  teaches  clients  to  express  them  in  a  healthy  way.  It  also  teaches
