Do you ever compare yourself to others, and feel like you don't measure up?

This is not due to a lack of good looks, self-confidence or effort.

It's the Beauty Load in action, and you are not alone.

Our personal perception of our beauty, or the lack of it, can make us feel anything from numb to anxious, stressed and ashamed, and at worst like we don't belong and that we are not worthy of being loved.

In the Beauty Load, counsellor Nicole Mathieson exposes the damaging and unrealistic beauty pressures society places on women, and shares how to let go of the struggle, feel confident about who you are in the world, and trust that you are worthy of love and connection-just by being you.
