This Hunger Artist has nothing to do with the artistry of not-eating — after all, there is no such thing. It’s concerned with the complex art and science involved in learning to listen, and respond, to your many hungers again after an eating disorder has made you forget how.

This site collects together all my work on disordered eating and its opposites: including my  coaching service designed to help you through the strange journey from illness to recovery, my Psychology Today blog drawing together the science and the personal experience of eating disorders, and my academic research on the links between literary reading and mental health.

If you want to know more about me, you can visit my personal site,, which is also home to various other topics that intersect with mental health, including consciousness, powerlifting, failure, and mountain walking.

I hope you enjoy exploring, and please get in touch if you have any comments or questions.
