In this weeks episode, Han is joined by embodiment writer and teacher, founder of The Girlness Project, and Yoga & Body Awareness Therapist, Pippa Richardson!In 2017, Pippa founded The Girlness Project, an initiative which aims to support the emotional and physical health of young girls as well as the importance of self care. In this episode, Pippa and I explore what Somatic Therapy is, how eating disorders affect your sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system which leads to an inability to connect within. We then go onto explore connecting with others, intimacy and what it means other than sex, and how we can feel intimacy with others if sex isn't something we feel comfortable doing during ED recovery (or any time in life).To find out more about Pippa, the Girlness Project, or any of the topics we've discussed today, you can find Pippa @_pippa, @girlnessproject or visit https://www.thegirlnessproject.com. Please note that during this episode we discuss sex, intimacy and the obstacles that may prevent this during ED recovery such as trauma, body image, and vulnerability.
