Beating anorexia is much more than a physical process. To overcome the mental and social challenges in recovery, you will need motivation, strength and a positive new mindset. Having recovered from disordered eating herself, health psychologist Nicola Davies has developed an individual-focused plan that will help make recovery seem less overwhelming, and provide you with the skills you need to get better and stay well in the long-term.
With workbook style exercises, this book will help you to identify the underlying causes of your anorexia, focusing on building your emotional wellbeing and confidence before giving tips on how you can make positive changes to your thinking and behaviour. Innovative and approachable, it will enable you to find the best way for you to recover your health and wellbeing.
