Our workshops focus on self-esteem building in a unique way. As a clinical therapist and professional photographer, I am able to help you see the barriers that prohibit you from reaching your full potential and personal goals through the use of photography.
Think about the lens through which society sees you. Through which you see yourself.
It's time to see yourself through a new lens. Of confidence, Of self-empowerment, Of healing and health.
It's time for you!
Do you struggle with getting dressed in the morning? Do you hate to look at pictures of yourself? Do you find yourself stressing out about social events because of how you look?
This may feel normal to you, but it doesn't have to be?
Take a moment to imagine yourself feeling great about your body. How would you feel about your day? How differently would you connect with people?
YOU DON'T NEED TO CHANGE YOUR BODY TO FEEL GOOD ABOUT YOURSELF. You just need to heal the thoughts that are keeping you stuck.
And you are not alone, all women, regardless of age, weight , height have something they hate about their bodies. It's like we are programmed to hate our bodies. I developed this workshop for women, LIKE YOU, who are ready to change their negative body image, their negative body talk and begin to love the skin they're in.
If you've been struggling with negative body image, then this workshop is for you! It will be fun, empowering and you will leave feeling invigorated about tomorrow. Join us as we smash the beauty industry standards of beauty and learn to love the skin we're in. There will laughter, tears, friendship and community. You are not alone, we are all in this together regardless of age, size or ethnicity.
Workshop developed and facilitated by Corrine Ament, Clinical Therapist & Professional Boudoir & Glamour Photographer.
SELFIES TO SELF-ESTEEM WORKSHOP
GIRLS AGED 11-16 YEARS
Research shows that it is important to address girls' anxiety about looks, as there is a universal increase in beauty pressure and a decrease in girls' confidence as they grow older. Key findings in research include:
- Only 4% of women globally consider themselves beautiful
- Only 11% of girls globally are comfortable using the word beautiful to describe themselves
- 72% of girls feel tremendous pressure to be beautiful
- 80% of women agree that every woman has something about her that is beautiful but do not see their own beauty
- More than half (54%) of women globally agree that when it comes to how they look, they are their own worst critic
We believe that every young person deserves to grow up liking who they are and feel confident about the way they look which is why we have developed the SELFIES TO SELF-ESTEEM workshop for adolescent girls. The workshop is facilitated by Corrine Ament, Owner of Studio519 , a professional photographer and accredited clinical therapist for the past 27 years. Corrine has worked with women and children in many capacities, as well as developing and facilitating groups and lecturing at Universities and Colleges. In addition to the group portion of the workshop, each girl will receive a private 30 minute photo shoot and two fully edited 8x10 digital images to celebrate their uniqueness. The photo session will be scheduled at the time of workshop registration. Workshop duration 3 hours. Parental consent required.
