Some stuff about Sydney

My name is Sydney Bell and among other things am a Registered Social Worker in Saskatchewan, Canada.  I have my own Counselling and Body Image Coaching practice (www.sydneybell.ca) as well as engage in positive body image active via this blog and my BodyRespect FaceBook Page.

Like many women I’ve struggled with body image issues all my life.  Over the years I have learned this struggle has only made me unhappy and I believe contributed to unhealthy behaviours such as emotional over-eating and not taking care of myself.  It is time to let the struggle go!  We do not have to be slaves to external ideals of beauty.  By seeing the beauty in ourselves, as we are, right now we are able to move forward and live the lives we were meant to live.

I am passionate about supporting other people in finding their peaceful centre, where we can come to a healthier relationship with our bodies, ourselves and others.

I am currently pursuing a Masters of Social Work degree with a focus on body image issues and their impact on the lives of women.
