Mary's sugestions are indeed useful. At work you can only eat snacks, healthy or unhealthy, if you buy them and bring them in and stash them in your desk. Give no storage space to snacks, don't bring any in - and you'd find it much harder to nibble. One of my points is that the unhealthy and excessive snacking isn't purely a spur of the moment thing, because you prepare for it well in advance, and take care to have the supplies ready and at hand.
The cost of seeing a psychologist for CBT is of cours esignificant - but have you totted up the full cost of all of the snacks you consume each week ? And consider the costs of the eventual health impacts of this bad diet ?
Appetite suppressants aren't the solution, anyway.
I wonder why the Overeaters Anonymous person sounded so odd - maybe you accidentally caught her in mid-snack ? Persevere, there, there could be something useful for you in that area.
In addition to being strict on limiting supplies at hand when you feel like a nibble, where stress is the trigger, learn better ways of handling stress ; and where obredom is another trigger, keep occupied. Getting up to walk around, plunging into different work rather than sitting reaching for snacks when you get stuck on the project at hand, all help.
