Cognitive Behavioral Therapy treats disorders by changing patterns of behaviour and thought that may be unhelpful. It is now internationally established as a key method of helping overcome longstanding and disabling conditions, both psychological and physical. This unique self-help guide for those who have a long-term problem with their weight is based on the ground-breaking work in London's only NHS clinic for obesity. It is not a diet book or a healthy eating regime - instead this accessible guide will help you understand why you have gained weight and can't shift it, and why quick-fix diets are not the answer. It will tackle your mental approach as well as the physical problems. For the first time the two doctor authors have put in book form their clinically tested, comprehensive course, based on CBT techniques, that can help you to overcome your weight problems and improve the rest of your life.
