Body Image and Self-Esteem
Evolving Minds: Navigating Body Image

At Evolving Minds, we recognize how body image and self-esteem can affect overall well-being. Whether you are dealing with negative perceptions of your body or struggling with self-worth, our compassionate team is here to support you.

The Importance of Early Intervention

 

Early intervention focuses on the connection between self-esteem, self-acceptance, and well-being. By addressing these issues early, we aim to help you build a positive relationship with yourself and your body.

Our Tailored Approach

Our approach uses a range of evidence-based techniques to manage intrusive thoughts and address body dysmorphia. 

Understanding Body Dysmorphia

Body dysmorphia distorts how you view yourself, leading to constant comparison and unrealistic standards. This relentless pursuit of perfection can significantly undermine self-worth.

The Link Between Body Dysmorphia and Eating Disorders

Body dysmorphia and eating disorders often coexist and share overlapping features. They can influence each other and exacerbate symptoms of depression, anxiety, and self-harm.

Our Treatment Methods

 

At Evolving Minds, we use a combination of evidence-based techniques and a client-centered approach to address body dysmorphia. Our goal is to reduce distress, improve body image, and enhance overall well-being using:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT): Challenges distorted body thoughts.

  • Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP): Reduces anxiety through gradual exposure.

  • Mindfulness and Acceptance-Based Therapies: Promotes body acceptance and reduces negative thoughts.

  • Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT): Improves relationships and self-esteem.

  • Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT): Regulates emotions and reduces self-harm.

  • Psychoeducation: Educates about body dysmorphia for better engagement in treatment.
