Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
How old is she? Does she have anxiety and depression?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
She is twenty four just taking her PHG then leaves to live with her Mother who is also coming over but she wants to go back,buy a flat and get a job but we are worried she won't cope .she had her legs dry shaved at the Laser clinic before they layered the legs and my daughter said you could see slightly different shades in her skin but she cried herself to sleep for two nights. She has anxiety and low self esteem problems but wondered how to stop her fretting over skin
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
Clearly this has nothing to do with the legs. It is her emotional struggles. She needs counseling
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I feel you are right but who or how can I find a top psychologist for her locally
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Thankyou for your patience maybe you know of someone local who is top of his or her field.Ayla has Sen five or six and knows all the the different approaches to her problem so she needs someone who can think out of the box.Can you make a suggestion.
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
Any psychologist would do at this point but you might look for one that specializes in body dysmorphic disorder
