When we discuss eating disorders, there's a tendency to focus on the sufferer. Yet there are millions of concerned parents, carers, friends and relatives who are confused and frustrated - both by their own personal circumstances, and by the abundance of potentially misleading information. Hope with Eating Disorders offers real understanding of the mind-set of someone suffering with an eating disorder, plus an extensive description of the various treatments available for the many and varied types of eating disorders that exist. With interviews from some of the world's leading experts, it sends the message that real, full and lasting recovery is possible, despite what we are so often told.
Having helped her own daughter on the journey from an eating disorder back to health and happiness, Lynn wants the HOPE within these pages to leap out and give a hug of inspiration and strength; to you, a friend or a loved one. With the help of this book you can progressively break the negative spiral of this all too common illness once and for all.
Lynn Crilly is a counsellor and master practitioner of NLP. She holds diplomas in treating depression and eating disorders and works with people from all walks of life who are enduring the misery that eating disorders bring to their lives and the lives of their families and friends.
The need to understand and help has led Lynn to explore a wide variety of perspectives on this illness.
