“But how will it help me?”
I was around 12 years old in this photo. I used to write abusive words on body parts I hated the most.
So I understand what you’re going through, because I’ve been there, and I know how to recover.
You’re skeptical. I like that about you.
Before I go on, you might be wondering who I am, and why I would know anything about having a lack of confidence, so let me explain. My name is Dr Katherine and my mission is to change the world by helping everyone be confident every gosh-darn day.
Why listen to me? There are a LOT of ‘experts’ out there, so why should you trust me?
I have been working in the health and wellness industry for over 20 years, and am backed by a BA, MSc and PhD in exercise physiology as well as a Post-Graduate Certification in Counselling. Although I knew a lot about how the body and mind worked, I suffered from severe negative body image and over two decades of eating disorders that almost killed me.
“I love everything about this powerful and healing book”
“Reading A Girl’s Guide to Body Confidence fills me with hope that those desperate for a positive relationship with their body now have a truly scientifically backed and compelling resource to do just that. I love everything about this powerful and healing book: it’s honest and raw, funny and uplifting but, most importantly, it’s filled with actionable advice that will transform lives across the world. Dr Kat’s voice is medicine for anyone wanting to have a better relationship with their body, and she shows us how by gradually building the reader through stages of knowledge with easy-to-understand examples and written exercises. If you’re looking for a motivational book—this isn’t it! Dr Kat does everything but skim the surface, so be prepared for a deep dive and get ready to train your brain for a life filled with real, long-lasting change and a new perspective.”
“A resource that is so desperately needed”
“Dr Kat has used her own experiences together with her academic qualifications in health sciences, exercise physiology and biotechnology, and counselling to create a resource that is so desperately needed for women and men today. In a world that is saturated with negative and often harmful messaging, Dr Kat is a breath of fresh air as she helps ease people through the complex process of transforming their negative relationship with their body into one that is wholesome and respectful.”
“An action-focused, at-a-glance resource”
“Dr Kat is one of my biggest fans and I love working with her. I went to her with a super negative mindset, lost and anxious. She has played a huge part in helping me shift my mindset so I can live my best life and achieve my career goals. I am back, believing and achieving. A Girl’s Guide to Body Confidence provides an action-focused, at-a-glance resource that I can now refer back to any time I need—kind of like having her in my pocket! I highly recommend Dr Kat and this amazing new book!”

Chapter 8: Body Confidence Deep Dive
In Part 1 you completed the physical appearance survey (see Survey 1.2 Physical Appearance) which gave you an indication of how you rate individual parts of your body, but also how you rate your physical appearance overall.
What I find interesting is that many of my clients actually like several parts of their body yet, overall, they’re dissatisfied with how they look. This is a lose-lose situation, because really, no matter how many parts of your body you like, overall you’ll always look at yourself negatively.
On that note, take a look at these statements. Now, be honest, remember this is a bullsh*t-free zone, we’re in the tree of trust. Have you ever said any of them? Or a version of them?
I hate my body.
Everyone’s looking (poorly) at my . . . I’m too fat/short/tall/flabby/bony . . .
I can’t wear that. It’ll look like crap on me.
I’d bet my shoe collection that everyone reading this book (including me!) has said one, or a version, of those statements. The fact of the matter is, it’s pretty common to not like a part of our body, or more specifically, not like ourselves. Even if our bodies are the stereotypical sought-after examples of perfection, that’s often not good enough.
But now let me ask you this, just because it’s common not to like parts of our body, does that make it normal? Does it make it okay?
It has become so common for people to speak negatively about themselves that it’s now the new norm—just like it’s normal to text a person to ask them out on a date rather than call them, or to break up with them via a Tweet, or—relevant to this section—to judge the worth of a person depending on how they look, or don’t look.
But what if the opposite was the case? That is, what if we flipped all the negative comments to be positive ones? What would that look like?
I love my body!
Everyone’s looking (kindly) at my . . . I’m fabulous/awesome/amazing . . . I can wear that. It’ll look great on me.
First of all, much of it sounds foreign—like it’s an alien language. People talking positively about themselves? Yeish, something must be wrong with them! They must be faking it! They must have issues.
How else does it sound? Maybe a bit egotistical? So that leads to my first question: what is body confidence?
How is the book structured?
It’s actually a workbook! Meaning, you will need to be actively involved in the process! That’s why it works! (But only if YOU do the work!)
You’ll start by completing 11 clinically-validated surveys and questionnaires which will jump start your self-learning. You’ll then dive in to the education, and finish by re-doing all the questionnaires to see how far you’ve come!
It’s a book like no other!
