A body-positive therapist is a great resource you can use to build a better relationship with your body. Wherever you are located in Connecticut from Bridgeport to West Haven or even New Britain, or anywhere else nearby, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

How a Body-Positive Therapist Can Help

Whether you’re seeking therapy for a mental disorder, crisis intervention, or to address body image issues, there are many benefits to using a body-positive therapist, including:

  • Self-esteem-boosting encouragement when you’re having negative feelings about your body.
  • A safe space where you are free to convey your feelings and better understand the impact of social messages about how you should look.
  • Helpful tips, coping methods, and affirmations to cope with self-esteem and body-consciousness.

For an example of how a body-positive therapist can help, read licensed therapist Brianna Ramon’s tips for fighting back against body-shaming culture.
