Therapy for Self-Esteem
Do you suffer from anxiety or depression? Do you often feel awkward and self-conscious in social settings? Are you constantly comparing yourself to others and finding you never measure up? Are you constantly second guessing yourself?
Self-esteem is a concept that speaks to how we feel about ourselves. When one has high self-esteem, they feel confident, centered, and worthy of love. People with low self-esteem often feel shame and self-doubt. They often feel critical of themselves, unworthy of love or praise.
Regardless of how low self-esteem manifests, the results are disruptive to how we function:
- Depression and anxiety
- Lack of joy in life
- Anger, guilt, sadness
- A lack of resilience
- People pleasing
- One sided relationships
Treatment for Low Self-Esteem
The good news is, self-esteem is something that can be changed by changing your beliefs, behavior and how you think about yourself. Having said this, most people developed their self-esteem issues in childhood and have been living with low self-esteem for a very long time. For this reason, it is advised that they seek the guidance of a trained therapist.
Having a knowledgeable and supportive therapist in your corner can help you develop a healthier and more realistic sense of self. We can help you connect the dots in your life, discover where your low self-esteem came from and provide tools so you can absolve your negative beliefs and critical self-talk and replace them with self-trust, self-love, and self-acceptance.
