Author, publisher and positive body image campaigner
Sue Thomason has worked as a broadcaster for ITN and for 20 years as a journalist on national women’s magazines. An obsessive information seeker, Sue spent two decades researching into the causes of negative body image, which led to her developing coaching courses for women who suffer with poor self image and problems with food. Sue worked with the UK Government's All Party Parliamentary Group on Body Image and the Central YMCA on their inquiry into the causes and consequences of body image anxiety. Sue was founder of Beautiful, a glossy women’s magazine dedicated to body diversity and healthy self image. She is also involved with Ditching Dieting, psychotherapist Susie Orbach’s Endangered Bodies campaign.
