    • Mental Health

In this episode, I interview Ashlee Thomas, an eating disorder survivor and fierce recovery advocate. Together with her Mum, Ash started a mentoring and eating disorder advocacy business, The Secret Burden. TSB starts conversations, challenges stigma and creates change in the world of disordered eating and mental health. Ash’s story is a mighty empowering one, which she delves into in this podcast.

In this episode:

- The dangers of diet culture, the thin ideal, beauty standards and social media

- Eating disorder treatment and recovery

- Ash’s near death experiences

- Recovery awakenings

- Advocacy, purpose and mentoring

- And so much more!
