Body Image and Confidence
The increasing expectations put upon women’s physical appearance over the last few decades can be devastating to self-esteem — leaving women to try to fit into a new and ‘unrealistic’ world of Photoshop.
Some of the common body image and aging issues I have helped women work through:
“I don’t feel sexy anymore! I used to looked at much more than I do. In the last few years I don’t get the looks nearly as much . I don’t feel sexy anymore. Help.”
“A few years ago I had a boyfriend who put me down about the way I smelled ‘down there’. I know he just wanted to hurt me, but now I can’t get that thought out of my head. I obsess over my smell so much that I can’t enjoy sex anymore.”
“My husband watches adult movies. While I don’t mind so much, and sometimes like it myself, I do feel like I don’t look as good as those women. I am in fairly good shape, but I have a bit of a ponch and some cellulite. Every time we have sex I can see him looking at it and I feel unattractive. How can I feel (and be) sexier?“
