I love my body. Look what it’s done, what it’s got through! I’m so proud of it.
Carmel Cardona can teach us a LOT about how to get through some of the curveballs thrown our way at this time of life. She’s a resilience coach and the founder of Stitch Your Parachute which works with individuals and organisations to work through change and difficult times.
Carmel herself experienced surgical menopause in her 30s due to treatment for cancer.
In this episode Carmel describes how she has managed to reclaim her sense of self after the treatment which changed her body completely. We discuss the impact that cancer treatments can have on libido, and how important it is that both the medical establishment and people experiencing this feel able to talk about that.
Carmel also shares what she has learnt about resilience during her treatment and how she’s managed to carve out a new career for herself since then.
We think she’s fabulous!
