The Overweight Mind and Body is a self-help guide to understanding the psychological issues that lead to overeating and weight gain.

The book enables the reader to discover the psychological drives that lead to unwanted weight and to find ways of meeting those drives other than with food. It introduces a simple, user-friendly theory of Transactional Analysis to promote weight-related self-awareness. The author includes exercises that empower readers to uncover their own stories. She understands that, for many, carrying extra weight is emotionally and physically painful and so gently encourages readers to explore at their own level. She uses case studies to demonstrate the many unconscious influences on one's eating and how, when people discover and resolve these influences, they no longer need extra food. Reading them shows that "you are not alone".

This book will also be of interest to, and a useful guide for, practitioners in the caring professions who work with clients struggling with eating and overweight.

Kathy Leach is a training and supervising Transactional Analysis Psychotherapist, who has specialized in working with overweight issues in various capacities since 1980. Initially teaching a holistic approach to weight management and self-care and subsequently training as a psychotherapist researching this area of concern, she has remarkable insight into weight-related challenges.
