We will not leave you alone.
A stomach reduction makes a big change in your life. Of course, this has a big impact on your everyday life and therefore on your psyche. Since the body changes with the psyche, and the psyche changes with the body, balance is crucial. However, this can falter after such a big change. And that is exactly why we are now offering psychological consultations for our stomach reduction clients.
You will have three sessions with our psychologist. Once before the treatment and twice after the treatment. Here we would like to hear from you about your perceptions, feelings and changes in life, which will be recorded, among other things, by a questionnaire that you will fill out. This questionnaire is not only used to find out where you are in your process at the time, but also to make it clear to you in the further counselling sessions what a great journey you have already made.
The first session lasts 20 minutes. We would like to get to know you better and learn more about your background. This conversation is intended to prepare you in the best possible way for the upcoming treatment.
In the first month after the procedure, at the beginning of the weight loss process, there will be a second consultation, which will last 40 minutes. You are not on your own during this time. And this is exactly what we aim to achieve with the consultations. During the second conversation we will talk about the changes in your body and your image of yourself. Any experience you have had in the time after the surgery will play an important role.
The last session will take place six months after the procedure. By this time you will most likely have lost weight. The aim of this session is to talk about the development of your process. The focus in this conversation will be on your eating behaviour. Your adaption will be closely examined and your well-being will be discussed.
Since there are doubts as well as joy and motivation after such a big change, we would like to guarantee additional support with our talks, which you will not only take up to the procedure, but also during the, usually, somewhat bumpy initial phase.
