Many people, both male and female, can struggle with how they view their body. This could include feeling overweight or underweight, feeling unattractive, or not having the “right” body type or facial features. At Journeys, we work with our clients to first create safety, establish trust, and foster a connection, so healing journey can begin.
Today people are faced with a variety of challenges and issues that may contribute or co-occur with body image issues.
Individuals may choose to seek therapy for help with:
Eating disorders (anorexia/bulimia/overeating)
Over-exercising or over-training for a sport/activity
Feelings of anxiety or depression
Social media pressure
Thoughts of suicide or self-injury (cutting/burning)
Addiction (alcohol, drugs, eating disorders)
Trauma and abuse
Significant stress or life transitions
Therapy Can Help:
Our therapists work to partner with each client to collaboratively craft a plan to identify the issues, learn to express feelings in healthy ways, establish coping skills, and develop a healthy body image and view of self. This process is unique to each individual client.
We generally recommend scheduling an initial assessment with a Journeys counselor to evaluate what your specific needs are, as well as determining best options for treatment and more precise answers to the questions you may have about the process. The Journeys team strives to provide you with the best fit professionally, and will happily direct you to the counselor with the best personality, expertise and approach for your family.
