Negative Body Image

“It is hard to fight an enemy who has outposts in your head.”  – Sally Kempton

Women in our culture are absolutely bombarded with unhealthy messages and unrealistic images of what we are valued for. And to make matters worse, families not only fail to sufficiently counter these negative messages, they often reinforce them.

The cornerstone of any suffering is the belief that you are somehow defective or to blame.  It is something that cannot be changed by moving geographically or changing your appearance, though many of us try. It is something that can only be changed from the inside out. Therapy is fertile ground for cultivating a new sense of yourself.
