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.
