I have been incredibly busy over the summer! Although things have been quieter here, I’ve been ploughing away behind the scenes on a number of different projects, some of which I can now discuss.
It has been almost 4 years since I founded Balanced Being. Beginning as a platform to generate awareness of my health coaching, the site quickly became a platform to discuss and inspire a balanced lifestyle which eventually included a beautiful group of inspirational contributors.
Throughout this journey, I have often felt like I wasn’t quite reaching people to the extent I wanted to, and earlier this year I began developing a Balanced Being School’s programme with my wonderful and inspiring writer and mental health campaigner Dave Chawner. But, with red tape in every aspect of that development, I became a little disillusioned with the system.
For most of you that know me well, I do not give up when I’m motivated to do something! And so, in June I embarked on training with Beat; The UK’s leading eating disorder charity to become a Beat Media Ambassador and Campaigner. This week, as part of that new journey, I gave my first talk discussing my experience of Bulimia and how I recovered to the head office of the Girl Guiding Charity.
