For some, this can be a continuous battle, resulting in a distorted image of their own body, and a destructive pattern of eating, as in anorexia and bulimia nervosa.  Although it was helpful for Jennifer to understand how trying to conform to society's view of women had been a contributory factor to her problems, it took many months of therapy for her to begin to make positive changes.  Discussing the power of these images and their potentially negative effects is an opportunity many men may not have been given before.

Our clients are often disabled further by being treated with prejudice and inequality, with the effect of further destroying their sense of self.  Our embarrassment, inhibition and low self­confidence can make it very difficult for us to identify our strengths. " Our level of self­esteem is affected by our experiences in our daily lives; the more we take risks, the more our self­respect increases.  With each step forward her self­confidence grew, and with it a greater sense of respect for herself.

A song, a smell or a photograph can be enough to trigger off emotions that have lain buried inside us for many years.  But beware feelings always find an escape route!  She began to accept anger as a permissible emotion, and grew in her confidence to deal with anger assertively. Page 19 Handling feelings assertively involves three stages: acknowledgement, disclosure and physical release.  It is easier to admit to joy than to jealousy, but unless we acknowledge for ourselves that the feeling exists, we may not be able to express it honestly and constructively.
