In The United Kingdom over 30,000 deaths a year are caused by obesity. Counsellors, trainees and other healthcare and social care professionals need to understand and experience the diverse and challenging aspects of this rapidly developing issue. By including fictitious supervision as well as counselling sessions, Counselling for Obesity further aids professional development and gives a unique, person-centred insight into a client’s potential needs.


"Fascinating. Exceptional. Accurate. Unique. I am convinced that many professionals, and not only therapists, will find this book an invaluable resource for helping them to look beneath the surface of the symptoms of obesity and focus more on the contributing psychological factors. Only then can we say we will do our clients justice."

— Kath Sharman, in the Foreword
