Finding the right sort of treatment in a timely way is critical to developing an early and sustainable recovery from an eating disorder. Nicola not only speaks from her lived experience of an eating disorder, but she is also able to set this within the context of academic expertise in health psychology. This provides an authoritative and expert voice. Furthermore, the book goes beyond cognitive behavioural conceptualisations into emotional and interpersonal domains. It contains a wealth of information and thought provoking reflection for both the individual themselves and those who might want to help them on their journey.
