Improve Your Body Image with Hypnotherapy & Counselling in Reading, Berkshire

What is Body Image?

Body image is a person’s beliefs, thoughts and perceptions, feelings and actions about their body and appearance, including their perception of their size, shape and weight. Body image is the mental picture we hold of ourselves; it involves the thoughts, beliefs, emotions, and physical sensations associated with one’s body and how you perceive it.  Your body image changes, depending on your current state of mind, your moods, emotions and experiences.  As hard as it may be for you to believe and accept, your body image is not based on fact nor is it an objective view of how your body really looks.
