Counselor?: That's an obvious answer--my thought is get into a workout program or martial arts & after a few months of vigorous exercise you may be convinced you are in pretty good shape! If that doesn't appeal go the obvious route!

Cbt: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is often the most effective approach to treating hypochondria. Psychoeducation and exposure therapy have been used as well as treatment with antidepressant medications when warranted.
