LIVING THERAPY SERIES In The United Kingdom over 30000 deaths a year are caused by obesity. Counsellors trainees and other healthcare and social care professionals need to understand and experience the diverse and challenging aspects of this rapidly developing issue. By including fictitious supervision as well as counselling sessions Counselling for Obesity further aids professional development and gives an unique person-centred insight into a client's potential needs. 'Fascinating. Exceptional. Accurate. Unique. I am convinced that many professionals and not only therapists will find this book an invaluable resource for helping them to look beneath the surface of the symptoms of obesity and focus more on the contributing psychological factors. Only then can we say we will do our clients justice.' Kath Sharman in the Foreword For more information on other titles in this series please click here
