If you’ve recently had bariatric surgery, you may be facing conflicts, issues, and situations for which you may benefit from ongoing support. After undergoing WLS, medical support is essential, but it’s not the only support you will need. WLS patients need a variety of different support systems and tools to adjust to such a big change. At Philly Family Life Counseling LLC, we have several options and programs WLS patients and their families can attend to receive the weight loss surgery support they need to live their fullest and happiest lives pre- and post-WLS.
Philly Family Life Counseling LLC and Programs
If you feel the support you’re given by your medical facility and doctors is falling short post-WLS, it may be time to seek additional weight loss surgery support. Many medical facilities post-WLS focus on surgical milestones and physical health, but that’s not the only support you and your family will need. WLS patients face emotional, social, mental, and physical struggles that aren’t always addressed by bariatric surgeons. Philly Family Life Counseling LLC has experience helping WLS patients address and overcome these struggles. Here are a few programs you may consider if you’re looking for weight loss surgery support:
- WLS Coaching and Counseling Program: Our WLS Coaching and Counseling Program is a 2-part program intended to supplement and support the medical care you’re receiving/have received from your bariatric medical facility and doctors. Our support group creates the sense of community where you can listen and be listened to by those with similar experiences. Our program will address the changes you’re facing socially and individually, including eating habits, body image, sexuality, relationships, mental health, confidence, and more.
- Individual Counseling: At Philly Family Life Counseling LLC, Dr. Devers also offers individual counseling and life coaching. If you’re not comfortable in a group setting and are seeking a more one-on-one approach, individual counseling may be right for you. Dr. Devers can help you with more specific and individual concerns, struggles, and milestones post-WLS.
- Couples Counseling: Post-WLS, you will also face changes and adjustments in your relationships. Dr. Devers offers couples and marriage counseling where you can address these changes and how they affect your relationships, sexuality, social lives, and confidence as a couple.
