I have put all my blogs, podcasts, and YouTune channel information into one book!
This book is for adults in recovery from anorexia, as the recovery process is different for adults in a number of ways. The most important, is that once you have had an eating disorder for a number of years already, you have neural pathways of restriction, compulsive exercise, and any other behaviours to rewire as well as the nutritional rehabilitation part.
Rehabilitate, Rewire, Recover! focuses on:
– Nutritional rehabilitation to heal the body.
– Neural rewiring to shift neural pathways of restriction, exercise compulsions, and anorexia-generated thoughts and behaviours in the brain.
Using experience from my own anorexia recovery, and accounts from adults whom I have worked with as a recovery coach, In this book, I take you through the process of building your own, personalised, recovery.
As well as non-traditional ideas and concepts, this book delivers a “Toolkit” to help with the neural rewiring process, and action-based ideas to help you eat without restriction.

Book is now ready for pre-order. I can’t tell you how glad I am that I’ve finally got it done. Mark my words I am never writing a book again! (I said that last time.)
There are far too many people to name, and it gets complicated as not everyone who has contributed to this book wants to be named either. Hundreds, (literally) of adults in recovery from anorexia contributed to this book. Some just a quote, some massively by helping with the editing process. Thank you. You know who you are. xxx
