A patient and friend of the Xiaolan Health Centre has released a new book that we are proud to share with you:
Registered psychotherapist and mental health advocate Stacey Gorlicky shares her personal exploration of body image, sexuality and addiction in her first book,
Food, Sex & You: Untangling Body Obsession in a Weight-Obsessed World examines the delicate correlation between the need for food and the desire for sex – two of the most powerful engines driving evolution. In addressing the vital connection between food and sex, the book documents both Stacey’s personal battle as well as her experiences with clients on overcoming obsessions and fears around the two evolutionary drives.
“Self-acceptance is the greatest gift you can give yourself, and I am proud to help men and women take that first step towards that journey,” said Stacey. “Only by letting go of destructive actions and thought patterns can you gain genuine control, listening to your body and paying attention to its real needs.”
Stacey guides readers through a road to recovery from distorted body image and self-dissatisfaction, addressing the challenges that occur when food and sex are used to feed psychological voids and wounds.
Food, Sex & You, now available to purchase online and in major bookstores across Canada, including Chapters Indigo, Amazon, iTunes and Barnes & Noble.
