?  About our Ebooks


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.


'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.'
- Janet Treasure OBE, PhD, FRCP, FRCPsych, Professor of Psychiatry at Kings College London and Director of the Eating Disorder Unit at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust

'Here you will find self-help power tools to assist reintegration of self with body, an essential process in healing from anorexia and creating a happy, healthy and fulfilling life. Feel encouraged and excited, for, as Nicola Davies says, it is 'over to you'.'
- June Alexander, author and eating disorder advocate,

'A valuable resource ... empathic and encouraging.'
- Julia Buckroyd, Emeritus Professor of Counselling at the University of Hertfordshire with over 30 years' experience working with people with eating disorders

'This upbeat book is grounded in the lived experience of the author who has successfully overcome her eating disorder. It provides the reader with a range of key tools needed to beat anorexia nervosa, and it will be a valuable recovery companion to many people.'
- Ulrike Schmidt, Professor of Eating Disorders, King's College London
