"Can't I just lose weight to feel better in my body and about myself??" I can't tell you the number of times I've been asked this question, and my answer might not be what you expect. My goal and intention of this podcast is to help you love and accept yourself and your body more and more. To quiet the inner critic. To be less judgmental. To be more kind and compassionate with yourself. Can weight loss fit into this equation? Should it? In this episode I answer that question, plus I give you eight practical, tangible practices you can start today to start shifting toward self acceptance, compassion, and treating yourself with more kindness. _____ Connect with me: 💗 Website:  💗 Book your Free Call: 💗 Instagram: 💗 Facebook:

Bodies change with pregnancy, but when you've got a complicated relationship with your body to begin with, this can bring it to a whole other level. Kate Whorlow joins me to talk about her changing body image, how she learned to embrace her body and her tiger stripes through motherhood, and how she now finds herself at a place where she truly loves the woman she is, no matter what. This didn't come easy, and didn't happen overnight, but for herself and her children, it was well worth it. Kate Whorlow has been a Natural Healing Practitioner and Spiritual Wellbeing Coach since 1998, specialising in herbal medicine, aromatherapy and intuitive healing. Kate has been living with a chronic illness since 1994 and credits natural healing therapies for preventing her from ending up in a wheelchair or bed bound. Kate loves to help others return to wellbeing by utilising these therapies and also spiritual healing techniques during her coaching and wellbeing sessions. Kate has her own range of organic loose leaf herbal tea blends, originally created to help with the challenges of being a parent during long school holidays. The range has been extended to help people with anxiety, chronic fatigue, digestive issues and essentially keeping the body healthy and balanced. Above all else, Kate loves to help women find a way to put themselves first. Often we give to everyone else, believing that is our role in life, then forget to give to ourselves. Just five minutes a day for self care will give us the moment to breathe, be present in our body (grounding our energy) and recharge our physical energy, so that we feel calm, focused and ready to move forwards.  Living in Cornwall in the far south west corner of the UK, with her husband, two teenage girls, daft Sprollie dog and elderly cat, Kate loves to make the most of the natural surroundings especially the beaches less than 20 minutes from her, as well as wildcrafting (foraging) for local herbs growing in the region. _____ Connect with Kate 👉 Website: 👉 Instagram: 👉 Facebook: _____ Connect with Katie: 💗 Website: 💗 Instagram: 💗 Facebook:

Growing up in a family where she was the "pretty but fat" sister and constantly criticised for how she looked, todays guest struggled with her body image and self confidence from day one.

She began the process of peeling back those layers and re-learning how to treat herself and her body with the love and respect she deserves. Recently the culmination of this work is that she was able to get a branding photo shoot done for the release of her new book and it was simply fabulous! Day by day her relationship with her body is becoming more kind and compassionate, and that beautiful blossoming is being reflected back in how she's showing up in the world.

Learning how to take care of her body in a way that didn't involve dieting, deprivation, or restriction was something that today's guest struggled with for a long time.

Do you have an online business and you're avoiding posting photos of yourself and getting on video, and you can see that it’s impacting the way you’re connecting with your audience? If so, I can guarantee this block with getting visible is holding you back from getting results in your business. But what do you do about that? Do you just bite the bullet and post a photo (even if your inner critic is screaming "OMG YOU'RE TOO FAT, EVERYONE WILL LAUGH AT YOU")?? Uhh, nope. That's not gonna do it. Yes, sometimes doing things that are scary are part of the journey to being more visible and connecting with your audience authentically, but it's not just about the actions. You've got to transmute those sh*tty beliefs into new empowering ones. This isn't about adding more work and stress to your plate as a business owner. It's about stripping away the layers of crap that's been piled on you over your lifetime so that you can reclaim your inner, joyous, love-filled you and in turn create a connected, thriving business. And, believe it or not, this journey gets to be FUN! _____ Connect with me: 💗 Website:  💗 Book a Free Call: 💗 Instagram: 💗 Facebook:

Weight gain is not a goal many women have, or openly discuss, but it was an integral part of Amber's journey to healing her health and relationship with herself. For years, Amber suffered from orthorexia and even lost her period for a time. After some big aha moments, she knew things needed to change. Over the past couple of years, she has elevated her wellbeing, healed her body, and stepped into self love and true inner freedom in a beautiful way. In 2008, yoga came into Amber's life at a time of desperation and deep depression where she had no purpose or desire for life. Through the profound transformation that transpired and continues to evolve in her life, Amber's mission became clear: She continues to study yoga and learn more about herself so that she is able to better serve her students and give back to yoga what yoga has continuously and unconditionally given her for the last 10 years. Amber is here on the planet to help other high and over achieving women reclaim their power by building confidence, setting boundaries, and establishing a daily yoga practice in order to create a life of passion and purpose. _____ Connect with Amber: 👉Facebook: 👉Facebook Group: 👉Instagram: _____ Connect with Katie: 💗 Website: 💗 Instagram: 💗 Facebook:

The body standards imposed on women by society is absolutely unreal. Often it's focused on body size instead of health or wellbeing. Today's guest is Jessica Powell, and for years, she struggled with this. Through her service in the military and into motherhood, until eventually she said enough is enough! Jessica has finally learned to embrace the body she's got and reclaim her health and fitness on her terms. Jessica Powell is a life coach based out of Lexington, Kentucky. When she's not spending time with her husband and two kiddos you can find her reading, or staying active doing Crossfit and training for triathlons. During her time in the military, she struggled with her identity and worth being rooted in how much she weighed, which led to further health struggles and depression. Over time, she redefined what healthy looked like for her and climbed out of the pit of shame, fear, and self-doubt that she created for herself. As a life coach, she seeks to help other women redefine their stories to create a life they love. _____ Connect with Jessica: 👉Website: 👉Instagram: _____ Connect with Katie: 💗 Website: 💗 Katie's Instagram: 💗 Katie's Facebook:

The tagline of the Summit was "Make 2020 the last year you hate your body" and that continues to be my mission! Lindsay agreed to be part of The Body Peace Summit not as a guest expert, but as a woman who is sharing her lived experience.

Feeling safe to be vulnerable and authentic can be challenging... and it starts with you! Often we are our own worst critics. Seeing and picking apart all the things we see as not good enough, too much, inadequate, or wrong. That is not a space of safety - quite the opposite. To truly love yourself, you've got to be able to trust that you've got your own back, that you are your own cheerleader, and that you are able to be your true self. But how the heck do you do this? And why should you do it? Being a safe space for yourself is surprisingly simple (just 2 steps) and I promise you - it will positively impact every single part of your life! _____ Connect with Katie: 💗 Recent Body Confidence & Visibility Training: 💗 Coaching & Upcoming Trainings: 💗 Katie's Instagram: 💗 Katie's Facebook:

Plus, human connection is impossible when you are acting like a robot. Boring, bland and basic are default settings – but they aren’t the only settings.

"I have a bad _____". Have you ever said that about a part of your body? I know I sure have. Whether it's because of injury, illness, or a limiting belief about what your body "should" be or look like, we all use language about our body that is not loving, supportive, or conducive to a healthy body image. Using disrespectful or demeaning language about our bodies is something that is so normalized in society, yet it works against what you really want - to feel happy, content, and at peace with the body you live in! Let's talk about your language and one simple trick you can use to switch it up and create a healthier, more accepting relationship with your body. _____ Connect with Katie: 💗 Book Your Free Call: 💗 Coaching & Upcoming Trainings: 💗 Katie's Instagram: 💗 Katie's Facebook:

Self sabotage is so common, and SO frustrating! You set a goal, whether it be in your health, in your business, with your money, friendships, or something else. You know what you need to do, then you just don't do it. This leads to self doubt, judgment, a loud inner critic, and a lot of frustration. Here's the thing... When you understand WHY you are sabotaging yourself, it's so much easier to have self compassion, treat yourself with kindness, and it empowers you to make new decisions and/or set new goals! Sabotage does not need to be the norm. It's time to choose better for yourself. _____ Connect with Katie: 💗 Book Your Free Call: 💗 Coaching & upcoming trainings: 💗 Katie's Instagram: 💗 Katie's Facebook:

A woman's relationship with her body is often challenging. We are told we should be this and not that. Not too much, but not too little. But what happens when you want children, but are not able to have them and your biological role as a women is questioned? This is a big part of what makes Chantal Vanderhaeghen so unique and what makes her story incredibly powerful. Chantal shares her story of growing up in an abusive home, of having a body she was incredibly disconnected from, of drowning out her intuition, and how she learned to come home to herself and honour the body she's got.  Chantal Vanderhaeghen is a confidence and intuitive counsellor who enjoys walking alongside women willing to take the courageous steps to become confidently themselves. It gives her such joy seeing women get excited about being themselves with a sense of freedom knowing they are creating their lives in their own way.

She loves connecting the threads of their life supporting them to create their own beautiful and unique tapestry from what has brought them to where they are now to where they want to be. _____ Connect with Chantal: 👉Instagram: 👉Facebook: 👉Join the Facebook Group: Women Without Children - transforming the story: _____ Connect with Katie: 💗 Offers & upcoming trainings: 💗 Katie's Instagram: 💗 Katie's Facebook:

Do you cringe when you hear the term self love? Or do you think it's all just fluffy activities like pedicures and bubble baths? I get it. Social media has taken the idea of self love and turned it into a competition of superficial self care. It is often just a show of privilege, and yet another place you can practice self comparison. But that is NOT what self love is at all! It is your deep inner lifelong relationship with yourself that is unique to you. It is a beautiful journey. Let's break down what self love truly is, what it isn't, and give you a simple reframe so that self love gets to be fun, simple, approachable, and something that is no longer triggering.  _____ Connect with Katie: 💗 Book a Free Call: 💗 Offers & upcoming trainings: 💗 Katie's Instagram: 💗 Katie's Facebook:

Healthy activities can go too far and result in unhealthy behaviours and obsessions. Samantha Kellgren joins me to talk about her unique journey of overcoming orthorexia after she discovered that some of her once healthy habits had gone too far and caused her to lose too much body fat and, as a result, her period.

Welcome back to Self Love Ignited! In this episode, I wanted to do a quick review of one of the speaker sessions from The Body Peace Summit that took place at the beginning of January. This summit featured 12 expert speakers and we looked at body image and healing the relationships we have with our bodies from a wide variety of angles! There were interviews, workshops, exercises, and more. This is a small snippet of my interview with the wonderful Elijah Selby. Elijah's summit session was titled The Politics of Body Image and was centered on looking at feminism, the patriarchy, and who benefits when you hate on yourself - because it's not you!

The holidays are almost upon us, and for some this time of year can be really hard.  I feel you. Regardless of your traditions or plans, everyone faces stress this time of year and it seems to be magnified when it comes to health, wellness, self esteem, confidence and body image! The holiday period is often a time of over-indulgence, guilt, spending time with people (in person or online since it is 2020) who are all too quick to shame based on your body. This time of year can mean a loss of routine and structure, then at the end we decide to put a bow on top with a New Years Resolution that we know we won't keep more than a couple weeks into the year. Sounds... exciting?? Not so much. What if this year could be different?? Here are my top tips to create the holiday season you deserve!  These will help you deal with those negative, body shaming people and that extra stress that tends to pile up this time of year... _____ Get in touch with Katie here: 💗 Website: 💗 Instagram: 💗 Facebook: 💗 Find out more about The Body Peace Summit and reserve your free spot here:
