5h Assessable

We’re constantly scouting for world-class, influential presenters that help our members think in new ways – experts who can contribute creative solutions to challenges that we face in counselling our clients. Now, we’ve secured an exceptional learning opportunity that’s centred on helping you to support your clients’ well-being in new ways.

Dietitian Connection is pleased to bring the expertise of Glenn Mackintosh, founder of Weight Management Psychology, to you. Glenn has presented a series of five webinars on the psychological aspects of weight management, with emphasis on overall health.

Glenn brings a special passion (and talent) for training professionals in applying psychological principals to help clients who are grappling with weight management issues. His presentations earn raves from dietitians for being highly applicable and refreshingly insightful.

Yes, you’ve seen him on “The Biggest Loser: Transformed (2017)”, and his expert advice is regularly featured in the media, from Weight Watchers to “A Current Affair”. But what truly sets Glenn apart is his ability to deliver a wide range of psychology-based interventions that focus on holistic client goals and values. After watching these webinars, you’ll leave with a workable framework from Glenn that will help you de-emphasize weight loss with your clients, and instead focus on positive body image and self-love at every size. He’ll give you strategies to help your clients escape emotional eating, transform their mindsets and start to love their bodies.
