Presenter bio:

Susi Lodola - MIACP

I have been in private practice for over 2 years and I am currently in my final year of
MSc in CBT and MI from WIT.
I have a BA in linguistics and a degree in Psychology from UCD, and a BA in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Last year I attended a 3 day workshop at the Beck Institute in Philadelphia, on CBT for weightloss to further develop a programme I have founded for weight management using CBT and MI.
I have been running the weight loss programme for over 2 years in my private practice in group settings and on one to one basis. Currently I am applying the 8 week programme as part of my Masters research project in a closed facebook group to investigate the effectiveness on delivering such a programme through a social media platform.
