As Manitoba based clinical counsellors specializing in women’s health, Deandra and Karli work with a range of women aged 10 to the elderly, who experience body image challenges. These women are as diverse in appearance as they are in age, experience and backgrounds- providing proof that body image has nothing to do with weight. Body image problems arise when we are struggling in relationship with ourselves.
Body Image Counselling Services
Are you self-critical about your weight and appearance? Do you have a long-term history of dieting that provides you with little satisfaction, regardless of your weight?
If you have tried to shift your perspective about your body but seem to be caught in a negative loop of managing food through restricting or binging, being hard on yourself about your appearance and/or eating habits, and struggling to maintain a positive relationship with yourself, we can help.
As women, it’s easy to blame our bodies when we are feeling disconnected in our lives. It’s when we’re not taking care of ourselves in the way we need to that we start to feel bad. Our bodies are physical and tangible, while our histories and complex emotional landscapes are beneath the surface and naked to the untrained human eye.
Body issue problems are always symptoms of something deeper going on. Together, we can discover the root of your complicated relationship with your body, explore what is happening and why it shows up in a way that prevents you from having a positive, sustainable relationship with yourself. By working with me, you can discover what it feels like to build and maintain a good relationship with yourself and your body. An improvement in your body image will give you a fresh perspective on self-care and improve your mental health, and can also improve sexuality and sexual pleasure.
Taking Care of Our Bodies Because It Feels Good, Not Because We Feel Physically Insecure
