This survival kit/self-help book is written for people experiencing symptoms of binge eating and bulimia eating disorders.
It has been an honour to write the new version of this classic book with two of our world’s leading researchers in the field — Professors Ulrike Schmidt and Janet Treasure.
Eating disorders do not discriminate. This is one of the many reasons why it is gratifying to see evidence-based treatment findings and guidance from our best researchers being translated into more languages. This is line with the mission and vision of World Eating Disorders Action Day, June 2, 2106. #WeDoAct
I have written nine books about eating disorders since my recovery (my “reconnection with true self”) from anorexia nervosa and other long term mental health challenges in 2006. In 2017, I graduated as a Doctor of Philosophy (Creative Writing). My contribution to the eating disorder field was recognised at the 2016 Academy for Eating Disorders International Conference in San Francisco where I was awarded the Meehan/Hartley Award for Public Service and Advocacy. I am currently a co-chair of the NEDC Steering Committee Evidence of Experience Group, a foundation steering committee member of the annual World Eating Disorders Action Day, and an Advisory Panel member for F.E.A.S.T.
