Jodie Brenton and Mary Magalotti on Body Image
Unfortunately, celebrities gaining weight, meal replacement shakes,and new fad diets all sell magazines and get us clicking online. We subconsciously absorb these messages, and it can be easy to take them to heart and believe that we really do need to ‘get beach body ready’ or ‘bounce back after a baby’. It can be easy to forget that the most important thing is our health and happiness.

How the Life Resolutions TeamCan Help
Unhelpful thoughts and beliefs about body image can come from lots of different places, and it can be hard to know how to tackle them alone. A trained psychologist can help you assess the origin of these feelings and then help you find ways to tackle them.
Techniques Used in Improving Body Image
There are many different methods used to help clients work through their body image issues. Sometimes, the support of a doctor might be required to assess any physical health issues, and your Life Resolutions psychologist can help you connect with a health professional that will meet your needs. Your psychologist can also employ various methods for combatting poor body image, such as
- Discussing ideas and feelings through conversation and counselling.
- Hypnotherapy, known as hypnosis therapy, to assist in unpacking subconscious thoughts and beliefs.
- Problem-solving together and devising a plan to help you move forward.
