This weeks guest is a woman who has blown me away with her own body confidence journey and we could have talked for hours about this subject that we are both so passionate about. It's worth a having pen and paper to hand as body confidence expert Astrid Longhurst gives so many tips on how to find your body confidence and embrace who we are right now.
Astrid is the founder and director of the Institute for Body Confidence Coaching. She is also the author of the highly acclaimed book, “Body Confidence” and was the former fitness presenter on GMTV delivering her hugely inspirational morning workouts for every shape, size, age and ability!
Astrid began her career as a dancer and then moved into fitness, becoming the first size 24 fitness presenter on National Television. Having always struggled with her weight and own body image & health issues she went on to train and qualify in counselling & psychotherapy and subsequently in Life, Personal & Executive business coaching.
