I have been working with people with Body Dysmorphic disorder since 2005. I have worked one to one and in groups. I have also lectured on the subject training therapists and medics in how to recognise and treat this often misunderstood and misdiagnosed condition.
This website is dedicated to improving people’s awareness and understanding of BDD. My hope is that as a result more people with BDD get the effective help they need to overcome their problems and to go on to lead a happier life free from their obsessions.
I hope you have had a look at the Free In depth Guide to Body Dysmorphic Disorder that is available on the website HERE
I plan to cover as much information on BDD as I can in this blog.
This will include
How to recognise and assess BDD?
How does BDD make someone think and behave?
Why do people develop BDD?
What treatments work?
I will include case studies (anonymous of course)
My hope that this will be useful for therapists and counsellors, but also for BDD suffers and their families
