Hello, and welcome to my website!
My name is Holli Rubin, I am a psychotherapist, body-image specialist and mental health practitioner based in London, UK.
My contribution to the conversation on the impact of body image is wide-ranging. I participate in government organisations, activist groups, public forums, print, radio, and television media outlets, as well as running my private therapy practice. I regularly deliver talks about body image, mental health, fertility and pregnancy, and general family and parenting topics.
My goal is to raise awareness of body image and provide a platform for girls to begin to understand their relationship with their own bodies and to ultimately live comfortably in them. My insight and experience is helping drive change at a national level so that body image education becomes part of a bigger conversation.
As part of The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Body Image, Susie Orbach and I were commissioned by the Government Equalities Office to write a report entitled Two for the Price of One: The impact of body image during pregnancy and after birth. This report looks at the myriad of health and psychological effects that body image can have on pregnant women and new mothers.
