Anyone who has struggled with body image knows how it can negatively influence one’s life. Losing a positive sense of your self-identity can infiltrate into every corner of your life experience. At Positive Living Psychotherapy, we believe our clients can overcome a poor body image and learn to love their bodies through a positive shift in mindset and development of healthy coping skills.
Through one-on-one counseling, Dr. Keown guides older adolescents and adults through her unique therapeutic process, which is a blend of positive psychology and traditional psychology. Clients who thought they would never live life without the emotionally-debilitating strain of negative body image have been able to find healing and freedom through Dr. Keown’s style of therapy.
Eliminate the Symptoms of Negative Body Image with Positive Psychology
The symptoms of negative body image and coexisting low self-esteem can be pervasive and life-altering. Common symptoms include:
- body camouflaging
- continual comparison of one’s body to others
- skin picking
- excessive grooming or exercise
- co-dependency on alcohol, drugs, sex or in relationships
- anxiety or depression
Dr. Keown works with clients not only to reduce or eliminate symptoms, but also to make positive changes within the mind and daily habits to increase self-awareness and self-esteem. This important shift leads to an empowered client who can experience the contentment and self-love they weren’t able to achieve prior to therapy.
