Struggles with Self Confidence? You are Not Alone

It is normal to find ourselves occasionally frowning at our body in the mirror or enviously admiring someone else’s figure. However, for some, body image issues can become a fixation and lead to adverse health outcomes and unhappiness.

It can be tough to manage body image issues alone. At Life Resolutions, we provide compassionate and caring mental health services to help you learn to love and respect yourself.

Jodie Brenton and Mary Magalotti on Body Image

Jodie Brenton and Mary Magalotti at Life Resolutions know the prevalence of body image issues is increasing, especially for young people.

Social media influencers on platforms like Instagram mean we are likely comparing our bodies to others more than ever. Advertisements constantly tell us about new diet shakes, celebrities are mocked for their cellulite, and all of this becomes a subconscious obsession for us. It can be difficult to recognise that the primary purpose of our bodies is to move us about when we are so fixated on changing them.

Jodie Brenton and Mary Magalotti are passionate about ensuring everyone can access services that help them see their bodies with love and respect. At Life Resolutions, we are proud to provide a range of mental health services to help people with low self-esteem,eatingdisorders, depression, anxiety and more.
