Hi Writer, thank you for writing in. It takes great courage to reach out for help.

It seems that you are facing difficulty with having body image issues. You seem to feel that your husband desires a certain body structure which you are not able to provide or satisfy him with. The same seems to be the case for you too towards your husband. I understand that it must be a difficult position for you to be in.

Firstly, I would appreciate the courage in you for being able to manage so far. It certainly must not have been easy on you.
Could you tell me a little bit about yourself and your husband as individuals?
How long have you been married? Was it a love or an arranged marriage?
Since when have these issues started? What have you/ your husband done about it so far? Anything that worked or did not work?
And lastly, how have you been managing so far? What has helped you to keep going?
Answering these questions will help me understand your situation better and enable me to guide you accordingly.

Secondly, how would you like me to help you with your situation? What is it that you are hoping to seek through this counselling process?

Please respond back to continue our discussion. Looking forward to hearing from you.
Warm regards.
