Body Image Therapy For Women

What Exactly is Body Image?

Body image is the perception someone has of their own body. This view is affected by relationships with friends and family members, experiences and struggles in life and also by how they think others perceive them.

Some people have more of a positive body image and some more of a negative body image. Negative body image comes in varying extremes. Mild dislike of one’s appearance is at the lower end of having a negative body image, while the development of an eating disorder is at the top. Anorexia Nervosa treatment centers, and bulimia help centers can be very helpful for those with a poor body image.
