In a world of glossy magazines, dating apps and Instagram filters, keeping in touch with reality has never been more difficult.
Katie Piper has been through some tough times of her own, and will be sharing what she's learnt on her debut theatre tour. She'll be explaining what helped her to remain positive through her own battles with anxiety after her terrible acid attack, and how she overcame its crippling clutches.
We all have insecurities, and adversity in life is unavoidable, so how can it be managed?
This is Katie's story, this is her life, this is her wisdom.
