I am an advocate for self-help and homework in therapy, because it is so important we work on ourselves every day to become who we want to be. I often recommend homework and self-help outside of the stated concern, because truly changing involves a broad look at ourselves. I strongly believe goals such as weight loss will be much better achieved and sustained if there is a wholistic approach to self betterment, reading and learning outside of just diet and exercise.
