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.
