Jodie Brenton and Mary Magalotti on Body Image
You cannot go anywhere, either online or in real life, without seeing messages about weight loss, new diets and the ‘ideal body’. It is easy for these harmful messages to seep into our consciousness and cause us insecurities over our looks. It can be hard to remember that the most important thing is health, both of body and spirit.
Jodie Brenton and Mary Magalotti are here to ensure everyone can access appropriate and compassionate mentalhealth care. At Life Resolutions, we offer
a variety of mental health services if you need help tackling low self-esteem,eatingdisorders, depression, anxiety or other issues.

How the Life Resolutions Team Can Help
Here at Life Resolutions, we can help you work through your body image issues and discover where these unwelcome thoughts and beliefs come from. We will assist you in creating a unique plan for a healthier you that takes into account your goals and lifestyle.
Techniques Used in Improving Body Image
Sometimes, we can pick up ideas from our past experiences, the media and others and hold them as truth, even though they are not making us happy or helping us to achieve our goals. A psychologist will help you objectively consider all these different pieces of information, so you can take what you need, and discard the rest.
Sometimes, techniques such as hypnosis therapy can help you in further unpacking unconscious beliefs that are impacting how you see yourself and the world.
Help from another health professional, like a doctor or nutritionist, might also be needed to assess any physical barriers to health and happiness.
