Weight Issues

Low self-esteem, a pressure for perfection, body dissatisfaction, and feeling a loss of control, can cause abnormal eating habits to emerge. There are also physiological components that can contribute to an eating disorder, such as high levels of stress, a family history, childhood trauma, as well as environmental exposure. Abnormal eating habits can fall on two ends of the spectrum, from self-starvation to overindulging to the point of sickness, both of which can cause severe emotional and physical damage to one’s body.

• Counseling can challenge an individual’s skewed self-concept and help them see their true selves.
