In this episode, I speak to Olivia Hernandez a singer, artist and life coach who guides others to enjoy the ride of weirdness and healing that comes from Speaking Your TRUTH, by taking Bold action, embracing the beautiful journey of healing and embodying the Badass within. I'm so excited to share this episode with you because some of the topics we speak about are different from traditional approaches to eating disorder recovery that you have probably come across before. While there might not be direct evidence for the effectiveness of the approaches we discuss, I believe that there is no one-size(therapy)-fits-all in recovery and these approaches/modalities can support recovery for some people.  We discuss: Getting excited to do the work on yourself Creating love rituals How to connect to your divine self What are the different chakras Using affirmations and crystals to align energy Importance of practicing mirror work Infusing your food, body and life with positive energy Using spiritualizing in healing your relationship with food Steps to create a 2.0 version of self What to do when the people around you don’t support your journey Connect with Rachel.

Ep 28: Eating disorders and disabilities with Sophia Purcell
Ep 28: Eating disorders and disabilities with Sophia Purcell
Sophia Purcell has suffered with anorexia nervosa since her late teens, but wasn’t officially diagnosed until the summer of 2017, more than a decade into the eating disorder. She also has a mild form of Cerebral Palsy, a congenital condition that affects movement, coordination, balance and muscle strength, flexibility and tone. At present, there’s not much research into the relationship between eating disorders and disabilities. As someone with first-hand experience of both, she wants to do whatever she can to raise awareness, encourage others to seek support, and hopefully make treatment more inclusive and accessible. We discuss- - How having Cerebal Palsy affected her self-esteem growing up and contributed to the development of an eating disorder - Sophia's experience in an inpatient unit and how it effected her cerebral palsy - Things she wished she had known before going into treatment for her eating disorder - Opinions on how individuals with a co-existing physical condition or emotional needs can advocate for themselves when undergoing treatment - How treatment models could become more inclusive for people with additional needs and physical conditions Connect with Rachel.
