Show Details

My Shopping Addiction is a new reality docuseries which features shoppers who love the thrill of finding that perfect dress, beautiful décor item or fabulous piece of jewelry. But what happens when the high of the buy becomes an addiction and obsession, and causes their finances, and their lives, to start spinning out of control? Tune into SABC3 every Thursday at 16:00 to find out

Many people are addicted to shopping. It can be a dangerous addiction, especially for people who can’t afford it.

In each episode of this documentary series, viewers are given a fascinating look at the lives of two compulsive shoppers whose addictions to the buy have sent them spiraling into extreme debt and have strained their personal relationships to the breaking point. A clinical psychologist is introduced to each individual in an effort to get at the root of what is behind their harmful obsession. Breaking the cycle of rampant consumerism could buy them the most important gift of all–the chance at a healthy and happy life.

The profiled shoppers come in all types, ranging from an heiress who spends $30,000 a month to a woman who fills her home with products from the 99-cent store. Whatever they buy, the subjects are hoping to get the help they need to stop buying so much.

Clinical psychologists Dr. Tolin and Dr. Ramani Durvasula will try and get to the origin of the shopaholics obsession.

Meet David Tolin! Dr. Tolin is a board-certified clinical psychologist and a leading expert on cognitive-behavioral therapy for anxiety and compulsive disorders. He is the author of over 100 journal articles and book chapters and has been a recurrent guest on programs such as The Dr.Oz Show and The Oprah Winfrey Show.

Meet Dr. Ramani Durvasula! Ramani is a licensed clinical psychologist whose work and expert opinion has been cited in numerous media outlets. She has been featured on Good Morning America, The Dr.Oz Show and E! True Hollywood Story.  She is currently a Professor of Psychology at California State University, Los Angeles.

Find out how these clinical psychologists will assist compulsive shoppers every Thursday at 16:00 on SABC3.
