Body Image Coach
I'm Emi, I'm a breast cancer survivor, diagnosed at 33. I have had four body-shifting surgeries, lost my hair, been disgusted at my chemo smell and fallen in love with my body. This exact one. Not a different one. I want this one please.
My career has been as a body therapist and I've massaged in the region of 7000 bodies. This gives me an insider view of people's relationships with their bodies and I know that many are dysfunctional or destructive. And the energy that goes into that is a mental / emotional load that isn't necessary (like other dysfunctional relationships).
I now do something quite rare - speak frankly about bodies in unusual places like boardrooms and lecture theatres. I work with companies and their branding, as well as their approach to health and wellbeing - supporting their workforce to foster real values and expectations around their bodies.
In 2018 I campaigned for more body diversity in adverts.
I am now a member of the Speaker's Collective, a social enterprise that brings together some of the UK’s leading campaigners and speakers on a range of issues fundamental to society - including mental health, suicide prevention, sexuality and gender.
