Designed to put you in control and help you to understand yourself, giving you the strength and confidence to achieve and maintain clear emotional control of your self-image.

Understanding Body Dysmorphic Disorder

Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) is an anxiety related disorder that causes a person to have an inaccurate view of how they look and to spend a lot of time worrying about their appearance.

Having BDD does not mean a person is vain or self-obsessed; however; low confidence, a poor self-image can turn into BDD…

Almost everyone feels unhappy about the way they look at some point in their life, but these thoughts usually come and go, and can be forgotten. However, for someone with BDD, the thoughts are very distressing, do not go away and have a significant impact on daily life.

The typical person with BDD believes that they are ugly or defective and that other people perceive them in this way, despite reassurances from others about their appearance.

Suffering with BDD can encompass other problems either as a result of, or as a contributing cause, which left untreated have been clinically shown to lead to many physically debilitating illnesses as the mind is very powerful and affects the body on all levels.

At the Wellbeing Practice we believe treatment should aid a full and lasting recovery, by offering you a rounded approach. Firstly, by safely dealing with past events and experiences that may in fact form the foundation of any negative behaviours and physical problems today.

Secondly to look at and address current problems or blocks that stop you from resolving unwanted issues; and then to equip you with the ability to protect yourself and grow stronger, moving in to the future with a secure and positive sense of personal wellbeing.
