Mission Confidence: Callie Thorpe on Owning Her Body in Summer + Self-Care Staples

Going for Goal

Welcome to Mission Confidence, a special edition of the Going For Goal podcast sponsored by Philips, designed to help you on your body confidence journey. This podcast has been created as part of our Project Body Love initiative, which is all about challenging the way we think, feel and speak about our bodies, embracing what makes us unique and putting an end to negative self-talk and embarrassment. Philips believe that hair removal should be a choice, and that it looks different for everyone. If you do choose to remove your body hair - whether you prefer to take it all off or to tackle your legs, armpits or bikini line only - Philips has a range of hair removal tools to suit your needs.On Mission Confidence, over four episodes and with the help of some very wise women, we’re going to be exploring confidence in its various facets and forms – with the goal of helping you tap into yours. Today we’re exploring the topic of body confidence in summer with Callie Thorpe. And confidence? It’s kind of her thing. As founder of The Confidence Corner, she speaks to hundreds of thousands of women spreading kindness, celebrating the beauty of different body types and sharing the message that in life, you make your own rules. Today she shares how far she’s come from being the insecure teenager who was so ashamed of her body that she covered up in knitwear on the beach; why her confidence journey is ongoing; the reason she loves having silky smooth legs – and how using the Philips Lumea IPL device is helping her get there. At home – and faff-free.Join Callie on Instagram: @CallieThorpeJoin Roisín on Instagram: @roisin.dervishokane If you enjoyed the episode, sign up for the Project Body Love event, in association with Philips, which is taking place online on the 15 & 16 May.

#2: Callie Thorpe - The Predictable (yet Painful) Response to the Cosmo Cover, 'This is healthy!'

Willing To Be Wrong

TW: weight stigmaIn this episode, I get to talk with the incredible Callie Thorpe, who is a speaker, writer and model who most recently featured on the cover of the February 2021 issue of Cosmopolitan. You may have seen one of the many stigmatising news articles, television segments and concern trolling social media posts made about why the cover was supposedly 'promoting ob*sity' (spoiler alert: that's not a thing), but did you notice that almost none of the discussions actually involved any of the individuals who were featured in the article? Better still, did you notice that most of the people giving the discriminatory 'hot takes' hadn't actually read the article but just seen the cover picture? Funny that eh?I want to thank Callie for being so candid with what was a difficult and emotional topic to cover. Please do look her up on social media (@calliethorpe) - positive messages of support and encouragement mean more than you might think.-My debut book, Food Isn't Medicine: Challenge Nutribollocks & Escape The Diet Trap, is now available for pre-order online (Amazon, Book Depository and elsewhere). Do come and join me on social media @drjoshuawolrich.

Callie Thorpe and Suzy Reading: Live at Treatwell

Power Hour

After a hectic summer, autumn means back to reality - a breather before the festive period kicks into full gear. The agenda? Taking stock of the year and investing in some you-time, something we often neglect during those summer months. So, it’s no surprise that mindfulness and self-care pique in interest as summer winds down; both peaking in popularity as search terms around this time of year, according to Google Trends. Sponsorship comes from Treatwell, the brighter way to book hair & beauty. Using Treatwell is simple and easy. You can browse online or on the app to find a salon or spa nearby and book a treatment, 24/7. With 8000+ customer-reviewed salons across the UK and Ireland and a further 22,000+ across Europe, there’s always an appointment to suit your schedule, budget and location. That means less time making frantic phone calls and more time doing the important stuff – like sipping coffee in the salon chair. You can use Treatwell’s thousands of reviews to help you pick the best place for you. We’re partnering with Treatwell to launch their newest campaign, the Mindful Mani. The Mindful Mani was born out of insights from their customers, the pressures to stay connected and the fact that the majority of us say they get manicures for maintenance, not self care. So Treatwell set out to change that. They’re encouraging their customers to take back that time, and enjoy a moment of mindfulness. The Mindful Mani is as an agreement between the customer and the salon that they’ll be using this treatment as me-time and will be plugging in and switching off during the appointment. They worked with Chartered Psychologist and Self Care expert Suzy Reading on this initiative which has even included creating Self-care toolkits for their partner salons and employees too. Head to their website to book a Mindful Mani now. The Power Hour podcast gets to know other people’s processes to greatness. Join Adrienne as she invites guest speakers from coaches, creatives and innovators to discuss their daily habits and the key to achieving personal success and well-being.Whether you want to build a business, write a book or run a marathon, the Power Hour is going to help you get there faster!You can follow Adrienne on Instagram / Twitter / FacebookThis is a Studio71 production.Producer - Jack ClaramuntExec Producer - Tom Payne & Jody SmithProduction Support - Phie McKenzieOutro music by Paul Herbert Music.Produced at Jamz Studio.Studio71 is a Red Arrow Studios Company.See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
