Are you into podcasts?
I had the absolute pleasure of being interviewed by the fabulous Tammy Roche who has a podcast called ‘The Helpers’. Listen here.
Tammy is a fellow mental health provider, loves narrative practice like me & has chosen to research and incorporate non-diet, weight neutral, health at every size principles into her life.
The Health At Every Size® Principles are:
Weight Inclusivity: Accept and respect the inherent diversity of body shapes and sizes and reject the idealizing or pathologizing of specific weights.
Health Enhancement: Support health policies that improve and equalize access to information and services, and personal practices that improve human well-being, including attention to individual physical, economic, social, spiritual, emotional, and other needs.
Respectful Care: Acknowledge our biases, and work to end weight discrimination, weight stigma, and weight bias. Provide information and services from an understanding that socio-economic status, race, gender, sexual orientation, age, and other identities impact weight stigma, and support environments that address these inequities.
Eating for Well-being: Promote flexible, individualized eating based on hunger, satiety, nutritional needs, and pleasure, rather than any externally regulated eating plan focused on weight control.
Life-Enhancing Movement: Support physical activities that allow people of all sizes, abilities, and interests to engage in enjoyable movement, to the degree that they choose.
Tammy found me on Instagram so YAY to forming real connections via social media platforms. 🙌😍
She’s also a generous, kind, knowledgeable soul who has offered to guide me as I embark on creating my own podcast in 2020.
I’m forever grateful for the genuine, compassionate folk that I get to meet through my work and by sharing my unfiltered stories.
So if you’re into podcats, are pro HAES have a listen to our interview and please tell me what you think of the topics raised.
Thanks again Tammy!
Can’t wait to build on our new but heartfelt friendship ✨💛
