@umbra21 - I would have to know that the person had a lot of experience with nutrition and psychology before I would want them to be my counselor. Otherwise you might as well just find a good friend to help you out.
There is just so much information about weight loss available everywhere it seems like a waste of money to pay someone to tell you about it.
And there are Over-eaters Anonymous meetings that you can go to if you're really interesting in getting into the emotion aspects of food. Or you could just go to a regular counselor.
They might not have as many weight loss recipes at their fingertips, but at least they are likely to be a professional.
