Self Esteem & Body Image
Freeing ourselves from the shame that binds.
Getting comfortable in our skin is not easy. We may feel disconnected or feel a great deal of shame and worry about how we may be perceived by others. In the bedroom, this could further alienate partners.
We're here to help you embrace yourself and love your body.
The way we view our bodies and the way we view ourselves is likely to be tied to each other. The people we interact with may judge us for how we present ourselves and factors we cannot control for how we look (for example, our gender, race, or any physical disabilities). This judgment can become internalized, where we start judging ourselves unfairly based on how others have judged us in the past.
Approximately 91% of women are unhappy with their bodies ... only 5% of women naturally possess the "ideal" body type often portrayed by Americans in the media.
Only 10% of people suffering from an eating disorder will seek professional help.
At the Love Discovery Institute, our certified sex therapists can help you discover new ways to appreciate and admire both the shape and functionality of your body. Grounding yourself in your body can be the first step towards achieving greater overall self-esteem and a healthier body image. The therapeutic work we can do can also be extended to couple’s therapy, where both partners can process their shame, but also rekindle the erotic connection between the two. Make an appointment with one of our psychotherapists today. Still unsure about how we can help? Call us at 305-605-LOVE for a free consultation. We are here to support you.
