In this best seller, Joanna Kortink, a spiritual psychotherapist, has formulated a unique therapy for the effective treatment of binge-eating and an array of other eating disorders.
Having suffered from bulimia herself, Joanna has, through the use of psychotherapy, creative expression, body training and natural medicine devised a system of treatment that provides new insights into the nature of eating disorders.
Basically, Joanna teaches that “eating differently starts with thinking differently.” And she provides some of her clients’ profiles in which she engages each one in a dialogue between the client and what she calls “her inner saboteur.” She also explains how you can increase vitality, find the spirit, get back to basics and to learn how to listen to your body’s signals, all of which leads to increased energy and a comforting sense of self-forgiveness.
In this unique book, the reader will find tips for immediate self-action as well as vital information for partners and friends of binge-eaters and those with other eating disorders. Furthermore, Joanna’s method will help the reader break the endless lose-weight, gain-weight cycle as well as treat the blind compulsion of eating out of stress.
Joanna Kortink has spent more than ten years as an advocate for women with eating disorders. She lives in the Netherlands where she runs her center, Artiva Food and Vitality Coaching.
In “Eating disorders review for professsionals” compared the book, Eat, drink and be mindful by Susan Albers to Breaking the spell of Binge-eating by Joanna Kortink. “Both books can be used as an addenda to or independent of therapy. They are very similar in focus and intent. But Kortink’s book is more “readable”.
