Jodie Brenton and Mary Magalotti on Body Image
Social media, television and magazines have all contributed to society’s perception of the ‘ideal body’ – something, that for most, is simply impossible to obtain. Some people may relentlessly compare themselves to people they see online or in the media, and this can have a severely unhealthy effect on mental health. Body image issues can develop into eating disorders or create other mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety.
Jodie Brenton and Mary Magalottiwant to ensure that everyone can access positive messages and support for anybody image issues they are facing. At Life Resolutions, we offer a variety of mental health services to address the causes and effects of these feelings, such as low self-esteem, eating disorders, depression, anxiety, and more.

How the Life Resolutions Team Can Help
Here at Life Resolutions, we can help you develop a plan to get you back on the right track with body image.
Your Life Resolutions psychologist can also liaise with other health professionals, such as a doctor or nutritionist, and determine if there are other any issues hampering your efforts.
Techniques Used in Improving Body Image
A psychologist can help you analyse your feelings and beliefs around self-confidence, weight and eating patterns. With this information, they will help you put together a plan to achieve your desired health outcomes, both physical and mental.
Hypnotherapy, which is therapy done in a state of hypnosis, can help you find clarity around your feelings of low self-esteem and body image.
For some, help from another health professional like a doctor may also be needed to help identify causes of weight loss or gain.
