Dr George Blair-West specialises in psychiatry, particularly relationship/sex therapy and trauma, in private practice in Brisbane, Australia. His abiding interest is distilling the latest psychotherapeutic research for his clinical work, and sharing it with the greater population. George's writing career began over 25 years ago with a variety of magazine, newspaper and research papers on a range of topics. Needing to lose weight, he then turned his focus to the overlooked research into the psychological forces that prevent weight loss. The bestselling Weight Loss for Food Lovers: Understanding Our Minds and Why We Sabotage Our Weight Loss (translated into Dutch and Chinese) came from his research. A children's book on teaching healthy eating habits followed, and in 2010 he was named one of the 'top 20 most influential obesity experts in the world'. George sees his most important work as helping people make sense of relationships. His writing is heavily influenced by his wife of 30 years, Penny, a clinical psychologist and also a relationship therapist. Jiveny Blair-West, 28, graduated university with a distinction in copywriting. Quickly disheartened by having to work on campaigns she did not believe in, she left Australia and travelled the world for some years before returning to settle in Melbourne where she became a Credentialled Practitioner of Coaching through the Coaching Institute. Then, following in her parents' footsteps, she specialised to become a dating and attraction coach. She started her first blog, about her travels when she was 21 which evolved into her current blog - - with a focus on 'Offline Dating in an Online World'.
