In my practice I frequently consult people with body image issues. What do I mean with body image issues? Dissatisfaction with the body, particular body parts or body shape to the extent that it’s impacting on psychological health and social activities. To go a bit deeper into theory: we all have an internalised sense of what we look like, an internal representation of our external body. This image can be distorted or not synced with the reality. This could happen due to negative experiences, comments, traumatic experiences or your comparing nature. All of this is reinforced by our current society where we have a lot of opportunity to compare (magazines, internet, Facebook, Instagram).
We are trying to keep our website up to date with treatment options and psychological issues you can address in our sessions. Have a look at the weight issues page or the grief page to read about what we can offer to support you or someone you know who is experiencing difficulties in these areas. We will update soon with more facts and strategies to overcome weight problems. See you soon.
