We are now on to our 7th episode of our new podcast 'Beating BDD'
The podcast features interviews with therapists who specialise in researching and treating BDD, as well as with people who are recovering from the disorder.
The most recent episode features Alex who's BDD started at around 13 after a friend made a comment about the shape of his head. After 10 years of growing his hair long to disguise the perceived flaw, he did a course of CBT alongside his own exposure therapy. Now, he exposes his head to the world every day and says his BDD is no longer a problem.
‘Now, I’m always the confident version of me, because I’m not pinning of all my identify on the way I look. So even if I look in the mirror and feel dissatisfied, I still walk away from it a confident person.’
You’ll find it on our website and YouTube channel as well as in Spotify, Apple Podcasts and other major podcast apps – just search for Beating BDD.
It’s produced by Claire Atherton in conjunction with the BDD Foundation. If you’re interested in taking part, or would like to suggest topics to cover, you can write to Claire at firstname.lastname@example.org
