for not getting help:
I don’t have enough time.
I can’t afford it.
I don’t really need help,
I can do this on my own.
My problems aren’t as
bad as other people’s.
I’ve tried therapy before
and it didn’t help me.
I’m so bad off, no one can
I’m too lazy.
I’m afraid to confront my
feelings, problems, eating...
The benefits of therapy:
Enjoy your life more.
Feel comfortable in
your own skin.
Be free from obsessions.

If you feel like you’re not living your life to the fullest, then psychotherapy
can be very helpful. If you’ve tried to improve things on your own and
haven’t been able to, then treatment makes sense. If your eating/body
image disorder is affecting your health, your home life, and/or your
professional life, then you are suffering and although there is no magic
cure, there is help out there.
Often I've heard from clients that they didn't seek help earlier because
they didn't fit into the classic eating disorders that they'd heard and read
about. If you're not bulimic or anorexic but obsess about food, how much
you weigh, how much you ate yesterday, how much you hate your
(stomach, thighs, butt...) body, you are not living your life to the fullest
and you can benefit greatly from treatment. This negative self- focus
distracts you from enjoying your life.
