#94 Body Confidence, Our Unconscious Mind, Brushing Your Teeth Naked with Michelle Elman

January 9, 2019

To kick off 2019, I'm joined by Michelle Elman of @scarrednotscared to talk about body confidence. Having had 15 surgeries in the space of 20 years, Michelle began to share her experiences using the #scarrednotscared , highlighting the lack of media images of people with scars. She shared a photo of herself in a bikini displaying her scars and it went viral. 

Michelle is a renowned speaker, coach, Instagrammer, YouTuber, podcaster and author (basically she does ALL THE THINGS). 

We talk about the difference between body positivity and body confidence, how to become more body confident, the power of our unconscious mind, when therapy vs. coaching is most helpful, the purpose of her book and so much more. 

I'm also giving away a copy of her book, Am I Ugly?, to one of the UK listeners. To enter the giveaway, head to @stresslessladies on Instagram and look for the picture of me holding her book.
