Shaun's Fundraiser, a new BDD research study and more editions to 'Beating BDD' Podcast.

Shaun Myer's Fundraising campaign for the BDD Foundation!

This January Shaun is hoping to raise money for the BDDF and raise awareness of the condition by going 3 months sober and attempting to do a 3 hour circuit class at his local gym.

2 years ago he says that he 'wouldn't have dreamt to share' his personal story publicly but is now wanting to shed the shame and stigma around this condition and help others.

Kings College London would like to invite young people with BDD between the ages of 12-18 years to take part in some research in hope that this will help them to develop better treatments for young people with BDD.
This study is interested in finding out about how individuals with Body Dysmorphic Disorder think about things. There may be some differences in the way people with BDD think about information in comparison with people who have never had BDD. They are interested in this because it may give important information about why some people have BDD.
All information and data gathered from the study will be anonymised and kept confidential.
If you would like some more information about the research please contact Katie Lang (


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
