#MondayMotivation: Body Image

#MondayMotivation
Every Monday, we post some 'motivation': this could be a quote, picture, activity, story, articles etc. This week's 'motivation' involves body image (see picture below).
If you need some support with negative body image, body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) or any other distress or difficulties with how you feel about yourself, your self-esteem and maybe identity, please feel free to get in touch with us to find out how we can support you through therapy, counselling and CBT.
Best wishes, Alexandra
