Weight problems often correlate with our emotions and an unhealthy relationship with what we eat. Issues with weight and food can be a result of one or many aspects of our lives; negative self-talk, media, family dynamics, our upbringing, self-image, past abuse or our professions. Feelings of insecurity can affect our close relationships, careers, and self-worth.
Therapy can help you achieve lasting changes in weight problems and the way you see yourself. Self-Esteem counselors at Mind + Zest help identify triggers and create treatment plans that enable you to take control. We help you develop the tools to change your environment into a more manageable one, we interrupt and shift negative thought patterns and “self-talk”, and we promote healthier, more positive patterns of behaviors.
