At Bright Start Bright Future Counselling Centre, I specialize in providing compassionate support and evidence-based therapy for individuals struggling with body image concerns. I understand the significant impact that negative body image can have on mental and emotional well-being, and I am dedicated to helping clients cultivate a healthier relationship with their bodies. In my therapy sessions, I work collaboratively with clients to explore the underlying factors contributing to their body image issues, such as societal pressures, past experiences, and internalized beliefs. Through a combination of cognitive-behavioral techniques, mindfulness practices, and self-compassion exercises, I help clients challenge negative thoughts and develop a more positive body image. I provide a safe and non-judgmental space where clients can explore their feelings, express their concerns, and learn to appreciate their bodies for all they can do. Together, we focus on building self-esteem, fostering body acceptance, and promoting overall self-care and well-being. If you're struggling with body image concerns, know that you're not alone. Contact me today to learn more about how my specialized therapy services can support you on your journey towards body acceptance and self-love.

Poor self esteem and body image are often paired with self worth. Bodies can go through changes throughout our lifetime, learning to accept ourselves as we are, knowing that things do change.

Body image refers to an individual's perception, thoughts, feelings, and attitudes towards their own body. It is influenced by various factors including cultural standards, media messages, and personal experiences. A negative body image can lead to low self-esteem, anxiety, and depression, and can interfere with daily life activities. On the other hand, a positive body image is associated with better mental health and overall well-being. Body image concerns are common and can affect people of all ages and genders. Psychotherapy can help individuals develop a healthier relationship with their body by addressing negative thoughts and beliefs, exploring their personal experiences, and promoting self-acceptance and self-compassion. If you or a loved one is struggling with body image concerns, a licensed mental health professional can provide support and guidance towards a more positive and healthy relationship with your body.

I have borrowed Andrew Seuber's approach to working with a negative body image, that is from the inside out. He suggests that "The negative image is understood as a dissociated and shame-based “part” of the personality in need of understanding and compassion, achieved via mindful awareness, “parts” dialogue and trauma processing. The first step is to create healthy separation between the "observing" or aware Self and the part(s) absorbed in the eating disorder via mindful awareness. Once this separation between the "whole" self and part of self is established, the Gestalt polarity tradition (empty chairs) is utilized to develop understanding of the shame-based part. Understanding leads to compassion for the eating disordered part from a non-enmeshed state of consciousness, aka the aware self, the experiencing self, the observing self. Healing of the eating disordered part occurs when that part no longer feels exiled as a "not-I" and is assisted in processing the traumatic roots of the disorder."

Poor body image or "Body dysmorphic disorder" is a mental health disorder that can cause you to unduly focus on perceived defects or flaws in your appearance. This may be something easily overlooked by others but can trigger such negative feelings inside of you that it can present as social anxiety, embarrassment or shame. Hypnosis can help you overcome these feelings and reach a point of self-acceptance that will allow you to move on with living your life unhindered.

Positive body image has nothing to do with how you look, it’s about accepting your body as is, not trying to change it, not forcing it to be thinner or fitter before you can like it and treating yourself well no matter what. “You are not your body”
