How We Help With Self-Esteem

Low Self-Esteem Often Starts In Childhood.

Low self-esteem can be the result of hearing unkind things said to you by family, teachers, people in authority or people you admired. Bullying in school or in the office, as well as cyber-bullying, can lead to feelings of low self-worth. If you don’t do something early on, self-esteem issues will affect many decisions that you make. It can have a substantial impact on your quality of life. In therapy, we will seek to identify the root cause of impaired self-esteem and work toward establishing new patterns of thinking. 

Self-Esteem Affects Quality of Life

Are you living your best life? If not, you may wish to reset your inner compass. Notice how you react to people and things. If your default setting seems to be negativity, then you may have low self-esteem.

Do you find yourself giving your power away? Are you letting others lead when you are the expert or are you making self-deprecating comments? Then you may need a self-esteem boost! If you allow low self-worth to continue unchecked into and throughout adulthood, then you may also experience low mood or depression.

How to Improve Self-Esteem

From positive affirmations to seeking insights from others on who you are now, we can create an action plan to help improve self-esteem. Ultimately, gaining insight from within will improve your self-worth. It is often recommended to try new activities and experiences that you may have felt incapable or unworthy of doing before. Additionally, letting go of your ego, guilt and shame will lift your spirits. Furthermore, practicing mindfulness and being in the present moment can help as well. Practicing self-care and self-compassion goes a long way toward optimised wellbeing.

The goal in therapy is to prove your abilities and worth to the one person to whom it matters most – You!
