This thesis is primarily concerned with aspects of theory and practice in Counselling Psychology, with a focus on the issues of shame and the body. i. Sections of the portfolio • Section A: Firstly I will present the research study which explores the lived experience of a changing body. This is investigated specifically in the context of individuals who have lost significant amounts of weight and have had the resultant excess skin removed by plastic surgery. • Section B: Secondly I will explore the factors and processes which enable resilience and positive adjustment in individuals living with a visible difference. This exploration takes the form of a critical literature review. • Section C: Thirdly I will present a clinical case study. This study considers professional aspects of clinical practice throughout work with a particular client. Key aspects in this clinical piece of work resonate with issues which arose from the analysis of the research study and the critical literature review.
