I’m sure that many people reading this piece know of somebody who, after completing a weight-loss programme ,and losing a significant among of body weight, find themselves a few years later having put it all back on (and maybe even having gained a little bit more).
And I also imagine that many people might suspect that there is a link between the trauma associated with adverse early life experience and obesity – and, indeed, the research literature confirms that link as you can see in the following piece: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5322988/
The Tri-Factor clinical programme takes these factors into account in the way we structure the work with participants who are obese. Firstly, we ensure that all participants speak to a Talk Therapist, all of whom are aware of the trauma/obesity link. We understand that it may be difficult to find adequate words to describe your story, so we give you plenty of time and space to talk and explore.
We also ensure that the full clinical team is aware, with your consent, of any information that may be relevant to the success of your programme.
And we also understand that we need to support you once you programme is complete so that you can sustain the mental and physical health gains that you will have made. Thus, all participants are offered a continuation programme for up to a year after you have graduated, and we will continue to stay in touch with you all the way along.
