Kate and Kristina:
As their interest, experience and expertise in the specific field of weight management developed, Kate and Kristina developed and presented successful seminars and a weight management program. Both authors are trained in psychological modalities including psychodynamic psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and crisis and suicide intervention.
In their private practice they treat clients struggling with weight problems, eating disorders, depression, and anxiety. Their work in the weight loss arena has often been profiled in the media. They have frequently presented on radio and been interviewed by print media for health-related and parenting articles. The impact of their expertise is felt far and wide, from sporting institutes to universities, public hospitals to fitness companies, as well as many organisations supporting those most at need in our community, such as Lifeline. In addition to this they work with a large number of GP practices and various psychiatrists.
Working in private practice, mentoring other psychologists to achieve their best and delivering life-transforming seminars addressing one of the most pressing health problems in society today, ensure that Kate and Kristina are recognised as true experts in their field. Both authors are members of the Australian Psychological Society (APS) and belong to several expert interest groups within the APS.
Kate and Kristina are the authors of two books “The Ultimate Guide To Training Overweight and Obese Clients” and “Do You Really Want To Lose Weight?”
