Wellness Coach-Anxiety Counseling

Camille Kennard

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Health and Wellness Coach. I have been a social worker for the past ten years counseling people with chronic medical conditions and providing grief counseling to patients and families.

The inspiration for my business Flourish Wellness; came from my desire to help people avoid chronic disease and illness through learning to nurture themselves as part of their lifestyle; body, mind, and soul. This passion came from my own journey with managing weight, improving my self-esteem, and learning to love and care for myself. I began running, biking, and hiking, and it has changed my physical, mental and emotional health for the better.  I also noticed I had more energy and stamina when the majority of my diet came from fruits, vegetables, lean meats, and other whole foods. I love my life and have enjoyed the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and I love helping others to do the same.

Seeing Your Body as a person, not an object

Source: https://www.spreaker.com/user/flourishwellness/juneholly Holly is a Certified Master Level Coach through Health Coach Institute and helps highly driven women build resilience to toxic beauty and diet messages. She uses an intuitive and spiritual approach that guides her clients towards self trust, confidence and Sovereignty over their entire being; body, mind and soul. From this place, her clients are able to make self guided decisions and finally live the life they desire in the body they live in today. In this episode Holly shares her personal journey with her body image beginning with dieting at the age of 8 years old to try to change her body. Holly talks about cultural messages that condition us as women with a message that you need to "stay pretty, stay conventionally attractive, stay small." The 70 billion dollar beauty industry promotes women being dissatisfied with their looks. Holly shares how she chose a career in fashion a highly "image centered" industry and found herself struggling with disordered eating and dissatisfaction with her body that led to digestive issues, hair loss, and anxiety. Holly describes her obsession with eating healthy and struggling with orthorexia and constant worries and fears about what she ate. She talks about how it influenced her quality of life, relationships, and mood. Holly loves to help people transform beliefs and teaches her clients "Intuitive Eating" which focuses on a healthy sustainable relationship with food. Holly shares how she helps women see their bodies as a "person" and treating it as a friend and rejecting cultural messages of being "not enough." Holly believes if we get out of the way of our body (stop trying to manipulate and change it) the body can self-regulate weight and health. Our body is our greatest teacher, our partner instead of our enemy. Holly began identifying her body as a person and felt less "hate" for her body. Holly helps her clients personify their body and honor it, naming the body, and exploring where body dissatisfaction comes from. She says hating our bodies is about conditioning and culture. We have been literally fed (pun intended) a system of beliefs (diet culture) that values weight, size, and physical characteristics above health and wellness. Holly shares her 4 part framework for loving the body we are in from 1) awareness 2) nourishment 3) resilience 4) sovereignty/freedom. It is possible to make peace with food and accept your body just as it is. Find community, support, and education through as Holly calls it a "homecoming" to who you truly are.

She reports that changes in hormones can be a "high stakes" time women's mental health. During puberty young women have double the rates of depression as young men. Dr. Jones states this is because during hormonal fluctuation the brain is more sensitive. She will talk about connections between hormonal changes and rates of depression and anxiety. Dr. Jones shares how important it is to track symptoms, cycles, and sleep. She reports that many women she their mental health issues as a weakness that is part of changes in hormones.
