Psychology

Michelle Cranston: Psychologist

Michelle is one of resident psychologists at Hallam Family Practice. Michelle can assist with a range of clinical issues such as depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder and eating disorders, as well as overall life difficulties such as grief and loss, work / school stress, bullying and relationship problems.
 
Michelle has completed her doctorate researching eating behaviours in overweight and obese males and females. She has assisted many people over their most healthy weight to change their relationship with food and eating. This is achieved through a "non-dieting" perspective, as the patient learns to identify and manage their unique triggers to over-eating (emotional eating, social eating etc...). This approach has been found to reduce yo-yo dieting (weight loss followed by weight gain), as research has ironically found that dieting is the main cause of weight gain.
