About the Author

Kate Collins-Donnelly has worked as a therapist, psychologist, criminologist and anger management consultant based in the UK for many years. She presently runs a successful independent consultancy practice which provides cognitive behavioural therapy, counselling, coaching and training, and is head of the Psychological and Criminological Research Division. She is the author of Starving the Anger Gremlin, Starving the Anxiety Gremlin, Starving the Stress Gremlin and Banish Your Self-Esteem Thief.


The book is full of case studies and exercises... The book is aimed at boys and girls aged 10-18, though I think it could be used by slightly younger children (perhaps 8+) with support and guidance. It starts off by helping young people to understand what body image is and why it's important before considering negative body image and the impact a negative body image can have... The activities and case studies are all presented in an accessible and friendly style. The book is beautifully presented and I can imagine a young person being very motivated to complete the activities. Whilst it is designed as a self-help guide to be completed sequentially from beginning to end, I think there is plenty of scope for confident parents and practitioners to cherry pick relevant activities or sections where time is short or where there is need for a rapid and specific focus... therapists, school counsellors, pastoral staff and parents may find that it is a useful addition to the recovery toolbox. -- Pooky Knightsmith * In Our Hands blog *
Katie uses her expert knowledge to help children develop a positive self- image... This book offers useful self-help activities to banish negative thoughts about your body. As a wellbeing mentor, I have found this book to be extraordinarily helpful; it has been used with some of my clients and I have started to recommend it to parents. An invaluable book, all young people should read. -- Wellbeing Mentor blog
