Low Self Esteem

How we feel about ourselves, or our perception of how others think of us, are significant in how we develop our sense of self-worth. Whether we feel good about ourselves and see ourselves as individuals of value, can have a huge impact on how we function in the world.

Shyness, anxiety, shame, relationship difficulties, finding ourselves repeating negative patterns, self-harming behaviours, addiction, eating disorders and depression can arise from feeling of low self-esteem.

We develop belief systems about ourselves, others and the world (for example: ā€œIā€™m no good why should I expect anyone to care for me?ā€ ). It is these belief systems which can stop us in our tracks and leave us feeling emotionally stuck at difficult junctures in our lives. Counselling and therapy helps to heal our damaged sense of who we are. It will also allow us the chance to experience a new, different, therapeutic relationship where we ARE valued, we ARE heard, we ARE believed and as a result, begin to feel differently and gradually change our view of ourselves.
