It is common to sometimes look in the mirror and not like what you see. However, sometimes these ambitions to lose weight, find a more fashionable haircut or anything else can become crippling body image issues.
The team at Life Resolutions know that body image issues can be challenging to work through alone. As such, we provide mental health services that can help get you back on the path towards mental and physical wellness.
Jodie Brenton and Mary Magalotti on Body Image
We are constantly bombarded with information about our appearance on social media, television, and magazines, and not all of it is helpful. It can be easy to fall into the trap of comparing our bodies to the ‘perfect’ ones we see on Instagram or the red carpet. These thoughts not only make us feel bad but can lead to eating disorders, anxiety or depression if left unchecked and unexamined.
Jodie Brenton and Mary Magalottiare here to make sure everyone can access high-quality mental health support for body image issues. At Life Resolutions, we provide a range of mental health servicesfor help with low self-esteem,eatingdisorders, depression, anxiety and more.
