In this enlightening episode I am joined by Mel Wells to discuss all things body image, self-love and energy.
Mel is the UK’s leading eating psychology and self-love expert, bestselling author of the ‘Goddess Revolution’ and a renowned speaker.
Mel frankly and openly shares her story with eating disorders, food, body image and self-love and describes exactly what made her want to make a change.
Mel shares her expertise and wisdom on how we can change our relationship with food, improve our energy, practice self-love and ultimately bring about a total mind shift in how we view ourselves.
I often hear mums describe their struggles with body image following having a child, and so this episode is incredibly helpful and relevant to so many mums with issues surrounding food, diet and body image.
We cover in depth the issue of how we can love our bodies even though they may look different post children and provide a toolkit for completely changing not only your relationship with food, but also with yourself.
