Supportive Chats!

Ashley is passionate about mental health and everything that comes with it. It’s wonderful to see clinicians go beyond the therapy room and make topics like this more accessible. This podcast can be a great conversation starter for loved ones or even to begin having a greater understanding of our own experiences.

There are many different eating disorders

I appreciate this podcast so much and loved going through the different animals. Please keep in mind though that anorexia is one of many disorders. I find that both Renfrew and this podcast make this error with their approach to eating disorders. Please normalize discussions about bulimia, orthorexia and binge eating disorder.

Awesome second episode!

Loved the last tidbit about learning to accept and respect your body as it changes over time. You don’t have to love it to be able to nourish it! I am looking forward to future episodes!
