Low self-esteem affects many, if not all of us at some point in our life – it affects our confidence, our ability to assert ourselves, how we relate to others and how able we to ensure we get our needs met. It influences our self-image – and the level of worth we place on ourselves next to others.
A healthy level of self-esteem can serve us well in life – especially at work and in our relationships. It can help to bring about long-lasting self-confidence, and a sense of comfort in your own skin and way of doing things.
It can also serve to decrease anxiety, reduce self-doubt and allow you to live life with a greater sense of internal freedom to be who you are.
What is Low Self-Esteem Counselling & Psychotherapy?
Counselling for Low Self-Esteem and Self-Confidence involves an initial exploration of how your self-esteem affects you. Is it impacting on your relationships – do you withdraw from others or perhaps need the support of alcohol or other substances to feel more confident in yourself or around others.
Counselling helps you identify the areas in your life which you would like to change to achieve greater self-esteem. It will offer you the tools to reach those goals, in the context of a safe and supportive therapeutic relationship, often drawing on evidence-based Cognitive Behavioural Techniques, as well as Psychodynamic theories and perspectives. Emphasis throughout is placed on helping you develop inner strength and self-belief.
