Body Image

Body image is the perception someone has of his or her own body. Poor body image can range from feelings of shame and self-judgment to eating disorders, surgery, self-hatred, added stress and unhappiness in our relationships and worse, unhappiness with ourselves. For some, the preoccupation with food, weight gain (or loss), and physical appearance can also lead to eating disorders. Through counselling, we support clients in achieving a healthy relationship with food and in accepting themselves and their bodies in their natural form. The central focus is for clients to feel heard and understood in their struggles with body image and food.
