Monique Scheepers and Anjali Mehta Chandar – Body Image and Self-esteem. Online Event


Supporting young people with body image and self-esteem issues can be a challenging, yet very rewarding piece of work. Due to this age group experiencing a range of difficulties, including: identity, social pressures, demands at school and in personal life, learning the tools as wellbeing practitioner to support them with these difficulties can add immense value to the work that you do.

This workshop will cover the following:

  • Understanding self-esteem and body image related issues in young people
  • Understanding both ends of the spectrum of eating disorders
  • Practical tools and skills for working with low intensity appropriate clients with body image concerns, from a CBT perspective.
  • Practical tools for supporting parents with issues relating to self-esteem and body image

    Delivered by Monique Scheepers, a senior counsellor for Brighter life therapy and in private practice. Monique has also worked for the NHS, delivering mild to moderate CBT interventions to adults. Monique is currently completing her Doctorate in counselling psychology (2023), and has been in an eating disorder placement. Monique will be supported by Anjali Mehta Chandar, a Lecturer and CBT Therapist, with vast experience working with children and young people in clinics and school. She has also worked in inpatient services for young people with eating disorders.
