Professor Julia Buckroyd
Julia developed this Programme to help people whose overeating felt compulsive and addictive. She has been interested in why we eat what we eat for a long time now. Twenty-five years ago she was a newly trained counsellor working in a dance school with students. So many of them had problems with food and everything that goes with it – weight, shape and size – that she felt really motivated to understand why many of us seem unable to eat the way we know we should. She has been working in this same area ever since and has spent the last fifteen years writing and researching.
