The Body Image Resilience Program

Your body is an instrument, not an ornament. However, we live in a society that believes the way your body LOOKS is important. Messages from media and advertising have taught us that our value is tied up in how we look, and that we need to put energy into making sure our bodies are the right shape, size, color, and texture. That we have to make sure we have hair in some places, and no hair in others. That we have to monitor the food we eat and the ways we move, the clothing we wear, and the products we use. This can be exhausting and overall draining, since we never feel like we “achieve” the standards set forth despite our best efforts.  Learning to think critically about the messages you’ve received will help you decide which habits to let go of, and how to reclaim your body, your voice, and your LIFE.

As an approved Beauty Redefined Body Image Resilience Program facilitator, I offer coaching services to guide my clients through the Beauty Redefined program on an individual basis (remotely, via video chat and telephone) and in a group format (at my office in Chicago, Illinois).

If you are ready to change your relationship with your body once and for all, let go of unhelpful beliefs, and develop resilience around body image and how you look, this program is for you!

ABOUT THE INDIVIDUAL PROGRAM:

The individual program has two components: an online component, and an interactive component.

The online component is an 8-week course designed by the incredible team at Beauty Redefined, Lindsay and Lexie Kite, Ph.D. You can work through the online course at your own pace and your own convenience, and the material is available for you through video, audio, and text-based curriculum so that you can learn in the format you enjoy the most. For more information about the online portion of the program, click here or check out the Beauty Redefined website.

The interactive component is done remotely, via phone session, Skype, or video chat with me (Dr. Paula Freedman), a licensed clinical psychologist who will help you dive deeper into the material and work through the challenges that arise as you apply this new framework to your daily life.

Each week, you will complete one module of the online course, followed by a one-on-one interactive session with me through the modality of your choosing (video or telephone). If you are finding you need more than one week to work through each module or to process the material, we can certainly slow the pace down. The course can be completed in as many as 16 weeks, so we can be flexible based on your unique needs and preferences.

The cost for the entire 8-week program is $700, with several payment plan options available (see below for details). For this fee, you will receive:

  • 16 weeks of access to the Beauty Redefined online course
  • 8 thirty-minute private coaching sessions with me, a clinical psychologist with expertise in body image issues, perfectionism, and anxiety
    • Coaching sessions can be used once per week for 8 weeks, or spaced out to every 2 weeks for 16 weeks
  • Hard copy of the student handbook to accompany our work
  • Weekly journal prompts sent to your inbox (completing them is optional)
  • Tote bag

Payment Options:

  • One-time payment of $700
  • Two payments of $350 (once at the start of the program and once halfway through)
  • Four payments of $175 (charged every 2 weeks)
  • Eight weekly payments of $87.50

I currently have space available for new individual coaching clients. Contact me today if you’re ready to get started!

ABOUT THE GROUP PROGRAM:

The group program is an option for those women who seek a community around working through struggles with body image, food, and appearance. It also involves two components—an online portion, and an in-person group session. The online component is an 8-week course designed by the incredible team at Beauty Redefined, Lindsay and Lexie Kite, Ph.D. You can work through the online course at your own convenience, and the material is available for you through video, audio, and text-based curriculum so that you can learn in the format you enjoy the most. For more information about the online portion of the program, click here or check out the Beauty Redefined website.

The group portion will take place in person at my office in Chicago, IL. The group is facilitated by me, Dr. Paula Freedman, a licensed clinical psychologist who will help you dive deeper into the material and work through the challenges that arise as you apply this new framework to your daily life. Each week, the group will meet for 60 minutes, and between our group sessions, you will complete one module of the Beauty Redefined curriculum.

The group is limited to 8 members, to ensure an intimate setting that allows space for everyone to share their experiences and offer support to one another in this process. Each member must participate in a brief intake over the phone to ensure goodness of fit before starting the group.

The cost for the entire 8-week group program is $400, with several payment plan options available (see below for details). For this fee, you will receive:

  • 16 weeks of access to the Beauty Redefined online course
  • 8 small-group coaching sessions (60 minutes each) facilitated by a clinical psychologist
  • Hard copy of the student handbook to accompany our work
  • Weekly journal prompts sent to your inbox (completing them is optional)
  • Tote bag with pens, notepads, and free swag

Payment Options:

  • One-time payment of $400
  • Two payments of $200 (once at the start of the program and once halfway through)
  • Four payments of $100 (charged every 2 weeks)
  • Eight weekly payments of $50

Contact me today if you’re ready to get started! Our next group will begin mid-fall of 2018 and I will be surveying those interested to determine a weekday and time that works best for everyone.
