a bariatric community
The bariatric surgery journey can be long and isolating, I know, I've experienced it. In my own journey I struggled to find others whom I could be open and honest with about the complicated feelings that choosing to have surgery brought up.
Family and friends will be supportive, but most of them will not understand the process as well as someone else who has been through the experience, and that is why I have chosen to specialise in this complex and very much needed area of mental health work.
I am keen to bring my fellow bariatric patients together, to provide support, empathy, understanding and community as we go through often huge changes, both physically and mentally as we the process unfolds.
In spring 2022 I will begin a fortnightly support group for those at various stages of their bariatric journey. These confidential groups will be limited to 9 persons per session and held online with a low fee to maximise accessibility.
