with Dr Anita Johnston

In this first episode of the ROOTED LIVING podcast, I speak to eating disorder pioneer, storyteller and author of one of my favourite books, Eating in the Light of the Moon, which explores using metaphors and storytelling to support and transform our relationship with food.

In this episode discuss:

  • the differences between being physically and emotionally full

  • the binge / purge pattern

  • themes of restriction

  • food and metaphors

  • the skills needed to learn to overcome disordered eating such as assertive communication and compassionate curiosity.
