Abusive relationships, love-bombing, and female sexuality, with Charli Howard

This week, Olivia speaks to model, author and entrepreneur Charli Howard.   Charli is known for her body neutrality advocacy on Instagram and beyond, having written about the pressures she faced as a young model in her debut book, Misfit, in which she describes how she was dropped from her modelling agency for being “too big”.   Today, she joins me to talk about why body confidence and self worth is so integral to finding success in love, why women posting pictures of their bodies on social media is such a contentious subject, especially where feminism is concerned, and abusive relationships.   We also discuss love-bombing, gaslighting and psychological abuse - so please do bear this in mind before listening.  If you need support, you can call The Freephone National Domestic Abuse Helpline, run by Refuge on 0808 2000 247 for free at any time, day or night.
