The Beauty Load: How to feel enough in a world obsessed with beauty


For all women who compare themselves to others and feel like they don’t measure up.

Our perception of our own beauty – or the lack of it – can make us feel anxious, stressed, and ashamed. This is The Beauty Load in action, writes counsellor Nicole Mathieson. This empowering book is for all women who compare themselves to others and feel like they don’t measure up. It exposes the damaging and unrealistic beauty pressures society places on women and how to let go of the struggle and instead trust that you are worthy of love and connection – just as you are.

Amy says...

"I had the absolute pleasure of reading this book prior to interviewing Nicole on my podcast. The pages are now full of scribbles and (many) corners turned. It is packed full of aha moments and with that a sense of feeling seen and understood. I'd love to see this book in every school curriculum. It's a must read for every woman, mother, and daughter. Nicole recommends it for girls from 15 years."
