When it comes to body image, the game is rigged against us.

From an early age, we’re sold an idea of how our bodies should look if we want to feel worthy, beautiful and successful.

We learn what we should do to control, contain and manage our bodies, and how we will be punished or celebrated for how we look.

We learn to ignore the cues and signals of our body, the identities we want to express and the joyful and playful ways we can experience our appearance and the functions of our bodies.

It’s exhausting and the game is rigged. We can never win.

There will always be a new beauty trend, product or wellness guru telling us how to look and feel in our bodies.

So how do we disrupt this narrative and rewrite the story of how we relate and live in our bodies?


The truth is that we don’t have to love every aspect of our bodies to feel at home in them.

The research says that we can cultivate body appreciation, acceptance and respect.

We do this by rejecting society’s beauty ideals and listening to and honouring our body's needs.

It can feel overwhelming to unlearn and reject everyday pressures.

But, with evidence-based techniques and in community with other women, this is absolutely possible!


Between us, we’ve spent over 30 years researching and testing what works to build self-belief and a relationship with our bodies that is based on respect, acceptance and appreciation.

Sas is an industry-leading coach, trainer and supervisor who specialises in teaching the principles of self-belief.

Phillippa is an award-winning Professor of Psychology who is known internationally for developing and evaluating evidence-based strategies to help women live free from the constraints of appearance ideals and pressures. 

Beyond our professional experience, we’ve also personally experienced challenging relationships with our bodies as a result of not conforming to prescriptive beauty ideals, illness and being women in today’s society.
