THRIVE with Whole-istic Healing Co.
EPISODE 10 – PART 2 OF A 2 PART SERIES ON BODY LOVE WITH DIANA FISCHER
In today’s episode about BODY LOVE, I launch into a beautiful chat with Diana Fischer from ‘Life Coaching with Diana’, where we get into the nitty gritty about body image and self-love.
It’s a juicy episode filled with shared stories of our self-love journey and some great strategies to utilise in your own body gratitude practice.
As a DISCLAIMER for this episode and EPISODE 9; I would advocate to see a trained PSYCHOLOGIST, THERAPIST and GP if you are struggling with an eating disorder or a severe case of body dysmorphic symptoms. This chat is for general purposes only, and I would advocate to seek PROFESSIONAL help from trained clinicians and even organisations like the Butterfly Foundation which helps those with eating disorders
Here is a little bit about Diana:
Diana is a life coach with a background in hypnotherapy and Psych-K. She specialises in empowering women to deeply love themselves and live a life that they truly LOVE.
She has overcome her own body image struggles since becoming a mum of 3 using the mindset techniques that she now uses to guide her clients, connecting them to their own inner wisdom.
Diana’s link tree where you will find more details of the work and offerings she provides is: https://linktr.ee/dianafischer_lifecoaching
(3.30) Diana introduces herself and explains herself and her journey
(5.15) Diana goes through her journey of birthing her 3 babies and the changes she experienced
(6.38) She dives into her ‘episode’ as she calls it and how it came about and how she overcame
(13.23) This then leads to how and why she has come to what she does now
(16.42) I apologise here for the background construction noise on my street! They just happened to be banging and clashing at the exact same time I was recording…Murphy’s work at its finest!
(17.15) Discuss the INNER CRITIC and how our brain is wired
(20.43) I chat about the journey from being single to having children
(22.33) The change from pregnancy to post-birth
(22.54) The impact of social media,perfectly curated pictures portrayed and whilst it is changing; this concept of ‘bouncing back’ being an unrealistic language and concept for new mothers
(26.30) Body image being the ‘tip of the iceberg’ according to Diana
(30.06) I ask what would happen if we never addressed our body image issues?
(38.20) Diana chats about her ‘Self-Love Community’ on Facebook and how to join by accessing the Linktree listed above if you want to join
(41.12) I discuss how I was not able to delve into this body love work until I had recovered from my postnatal depression; so once I was already in my health and vitality was I able to take the next step to THRIVE!
It gives my listeners who ARE in the depths of the trenches some perspective, that I was only able to survive during my illness…and venturing into this was not what I actively did at all!
I delve into how I am an advocate for Western treatments/modalities for postnatal depression, and as an ADDITION, I would advocate to see a trained PSYCHOLOGIST, THERAPIST and GP if you are struggling with an eating disorder or a severe case of body dysmorphic symptoms. This chat is for general purposes only, and I would advocate to seek PROFESSIONAL help from trained clinicians and even organisations like the Butterfly Foundation which helps those with eating disorders
(42.13) I ask Diana if there is hope for even the longest standing cases of not feeling self-love or acceptance to one’s body?
(42.55) Diana runs through her GRATITUDE practice which is just wonderful! A great MINDFUL MOMENT to practice this week!
(45.27) Diana gives a beautiful PEARL TO PRACTICE for those deep in the thick of postnatal depression, anxiety and PNDA; which is a beautiful one to try and call on
(48.31) Diana explains that she offers a free 45-minute phone call for anyone who is interested in learning more strategies or to work with her
I hope you enjoy this week’s episode
