Today I'm chatting with Alison Harris, a Wellness Coach and NLP Master Practitioner who is also a breast cancer survivor with an amazingly positive mindset. As we discuss though, a positive mindset is not the same as positive thinking - all will be revealed.
We share our opposing views on hormone replacement therapy, the perceived risks and benefits and also embrace the ability to hold a different opinion based on our own interpretation and influences - also known as our own map of the world.
It's a long one, but don't let that put you off - it's also a good one!
You can find Alison via her website https://alisonharriswellbeing.co.uk/ and if you're interested in the books we mention here's the links on Amazon:

Today I'm talking to body positivity expert Jane Pangbourne, exploring ways in which we can change our poor body image through reframing our thoughts into more positive and empowering ones. Poor body image affects so many women and can have hugely limiting effects on confidence. I hope if you relate to this you'll take comfort from knowing you're not alone!

Today I'm chatting with Paula Franetti author of the book Driving Force - How One Woman Rebounded from Life Altering Injuries and You Can To and founder of the injury support and recovery programme Rebound Planner.
Paula's personal story of recovery following a near fatal car accident is inspirational. Her positive mindset and unwillingness to let her multiple, potentially crippling injuries stop her from reaching complete wellness is truly awe inspiring.
