Understanding Low Self-Esteem and Its Impact

Self-esteem and identity are intricate psychological characteristics that have a significant impact on how we view ourselves and where we fit in the world. Relationships, employment, and general life happiness are just a few of the many facets of our lives that can be significantly impacted by low self-esteem. Similar to this, dealing with identity issues can result in uncertainty, doubt in oneself, and a lack of fulfilment.

It is critical that we acknowledge the particular struggles people have with identity and self-esteem in the context mental health. The National Alliance on Mental Illness suggests that there is a direct link between poor self-esteem and mental health issues, including anxiety and depression.

Restructuring Negative Thoughts

Your therapist assists you in identifying and contesting unfavourable or distorted thoughts. We assist customers in creating accurate and empowering self-statements to replace self-limiting beliefs using tried-and-true techniques. You can build a more uplifting and encouraging inner dialogue by reframing their views.

Exploring Yourself and Raising Awareness

 In our counselling sessions, we encourage our clients to reflect on the events, attitudes, and principles that have led to their low self-esteem. People can confront and change unfavourable self-perceptions by developing a deeper awareness of who they are.

Developing Self-Compassion

We are aware that self-criticism frequently goes hand in hand with low self-esteem. Our compassionate counselling methods create kindness, understanding, and self-acceptance while encouraging self-compassion. We help clients identify and express their requirements and emotions.

Building Assertiveness

Being more assertiveness is essential for elevating one’s self-esteem. The skills they learn from our counsellors help them express themselves with confidence, create limits, and respectfully advocate for their needs. They become more confident while interacting with others as a result.
