In the episode I'm speaking with Diana Rickman. Diana works with women who have suffered a miscarriage, difficult pregnancy or traumatic birth. She helps them to acknowledge and accept their birth story so that they can release anger, guilt and disappointment and feel ready to enjoy a new pregnancy.
In 2015 she founded the mission-driven media and education venture 'Your Emotionally Strong Life'. Her podcast 'The Emotional Freedom Show' is available on iTunes and she is a co-author of The Book of Inspiration for Women by Women. Diana offers 121 sessions and regularly runs group training and workshops.
During our conversation, Diana shares:
- How for many years she would do anything for anybody (apart from herself!) and suffered from extreme people-pleasing, leaving her feeling constrained and stifled.
- How by pushing down a whole side of her personality, she developed a whole load of physical symptoms, including heart palpitations, eczema and food intolerances.
- Why in becoming more of herself throughout her forties, she now has more energy and enthusiasm than ever.
- And how the inner god girl can show up during the birth experience and stop women from asking for what they want.
