Something that I did last August was the “Reframing Your Body Image” workshop during the Sugar & Spice Festival, and I was really happy to receive very positive feedback for it. As such, I really want to do it with more people, especially those who are suffering from a lack of self-confidence.
Body confidence is definitely not something that can be gained overnight, but I want to enable people with the same tools that I use so that we know when to shut out the negative thoughts, work on bettering ourselves and realising that sometimes, we are our own worst enemy.
Why this workshop?
- 1 in 7 adults in Singapore experience mental health issues at some point in their lives
- Of all Singaporean adults aged 21-77 years surveyed, approx 60% screened positive or at high risk of developing an eating disorder (ED). Only 1.6% of those who have ED reported currently being in treatment
- In a sample of 2,800 adults surveyed, heavy individuals reported being more likely to perceive weight-based discrimination than those of average weight
- Perceived overweight increases the risk of depressive symptoms and suicidality beyond objective weight status
- Healthier body image
- Improved overall mental wellness
- Establishing tools to help cope with vulnerabilities
- The workshop integrates NLP and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to understand the way you view yourself and how to overcome unhealthy mental barriers
- Practical tools for those who struggle with body dissatisfaction and self-confidence
- Is interactive but yet provides a safe environment for sharing

“Melissa’s ‘Reframing Your Body Image’ at the Sugar & Spice Festival allows one to honestly reflect on your various negative inner self-perceptions. Beyond that, the workshop has also successfully created a supportive environment among participants and given practical tips on how we may move away from such self-perceptions. Thank you!”
