Shameless is OTR’s group for anyone aged 11-17 feeling impacted by issues around body image and low self-esteem. “Know your worth, find your power”.
Please note that the Shameless sessions have moved online throughout the pandemic and lockdown. You can sign up with the button above. Read more about OTR’s availability here.
At Shameless we look at why we’ve grown to feel ashamed of our bodies, where expectations of how we should look come from, and how to fight back against these messages.
It is a safe space for sharing experiences with other young people, but you don’t have to talk if you don’t want to.
During Shameless we will learn how to protect ourselves by:
- Exposing the media
- Challenging our thoughts and behaviours
- Building self-worth
Together we’ll find practical ways to grow in confidence, accept our bodies and learn to celebrate who we are.
Our online sessions use closed captions and live transcriptions and we encourage those with hearing impairments to take part
