Welcome! My guest today is Jodie Gale, a soul-centered psychotherapist living among the beaches of northern Australia. She helps women who struggle with body image concerns, yo-yo dieting, chronic dieting, and eating disorders. These are issues that many, if not most, women encounter at some point.
