Body image can be influenced by a number of social factors, such as culture, the media, and interactions with family and friends. It often adapts to reflect new information, people, and experiences.
A negative or unhealthy body image can contribute to low self-esteem and cause persistent anxiety. In extreme cases, it can interfere with daily well-being. A therapist at Star Point Counseling Center Tampa, Fl & Brandon, Fl may be able to help explore and address these body image concerns.
