Women carry a heavy burden in relationships, often holding their own 'stuff' (pain, trauma, shame, fears, hopes, dreams) and also carrying that of those in their circles. It's a unique experience, and there is nothing more sacred than allowing space for fellow women to give voice to their experience in ways that are new and empowering.
I cannot think of one woman in my life who has not been affected deeply by the pervasive diet culture that cloaks our culture. Often the internal battle around body size, food, body image, and loathing begins before puberty and it often feels like it might be there until the end. WAIT. What if it didn't have to be that way? What if you could find peace with yourself - beyond having a 'good' eating day, a perfect workout week or a smaller pair of pants? It is possible. Yes, even for you!
The tightness in your chest, the racing thoughts, the inability to concentrate, the pounding heart, the sleeplessness, the irritability, the rage, the sense of doom. Do any of these sound familiar? Often, anxiety to me is a signal for us that something needs paid attention to. What is that something? Therapy can be a great place to explore and discover what it might be for you.
