Are You Struggling WithWeight Loss?

Home » Areas of Specialty » Weight Loss

People experience various body image issues, with many concerns revolving around weight loss. Women are more likely to seek counseling for body image issues than men, but people of all genders may experience these concerns. An obsessive focus on weight loss can lead to disordered eating or clinically diagnosed eating disorders. A person may seek counseling when they become obsessed with losing weight.

Available Treatment Options

Counseling interventions for those experiencing body image issues might include work on self-worth, confidence, and self-love. People with past trauma may benefit from addressing it to increase their self-worth and heal their body image issues.

Counseling interventions may also practice stopping or changing unhelpful patterns of thinking that lead to a negative focus on the body. Additionally, therapists may choose to engage in conversations about the societal barriers that contribute to a culture of body shame and discuss how that affects the individual.
