Therapy For Low Self-Esteem / Confidence

Symptoms of Low Self-Esteem

People sometimes seek counselling when they have low self-esteem.  Lacking in confidence and self-esteem is is when we see ourselves and our lives from a more negative and critical light. This can impact on how we manage the challenges that we currently face. It can mean you might be hiding away from social situations, stop trying new things and avoid anything that presents as a challenge.  It often results in frequent self-criticism and ignoring ones own positive qualities. Further than this though it can cause relationship problems and our ability to work or study as well as looking after ourselves.

It can be caused by a variety of reasons and start at different times in our life. This could be because of a message you have taken on board from another person’s view of you or it could be part of your personality.  

Counselling For Low Self-Esteem

Psychology sessions would look to increase your self-esteem by looking at the way you evaluate yourself, help you improve your relationships, help you be kinder to yourself, teach you assertiveness skills and modify your thinking style. This would be primarily using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
