Therapists in Florida specializing in Body image issues and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy

Therapy for Body Image Issues

A person’s body image encompasses how they perceive their bodies both mentally and visually. Due to continued exposure to images of “normal” or “desired” body types, people can develop a range of positive or negative emotions about their appearance causing anxiety, depression, or eating disorders. Working with a therapist who specializes in body image issues may help someone overcome mental health challenges linked to their body image.

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy

Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy is a modified form of cognitive therapy that reveals thought patterns that prevail during depressive episodes and teaches new ones to ease emotional pain and maintain wellness. It implements practices like meditation and breathing exercises. You’ll find mental health professionals who specialize in mindfulness-based cognitive therapy listed below.
