What is Low Self-Esteem?

Low self-esteem refers to holding negative opinions about yourself. You might describe yourself as having low self-esteem if you do not feel confident in yourself, have a loud inner critic or are uncomfortable in social situations.

People with low self-esteem often hold negative beliefs about themselves as if they are facts and find it difficult to recognise that they are opinions and not facts. Low self-esteem can have a big impact on your mental health and can lead to feeling low or depressed. It may be as a result of something going on in your present life or may even be related to something you experienced in childhood. 

Can counselling help with Low Self-Esteem?

Yes, it can. It may be helpful to know that many people suffer from low self-esteem and you are not alone. Psychotherapy can help you to work through the emotions related to having low self-esteem as well as support you in exploring why low self-esteem is present for you. You can work with the support of your psychotherapist to challenge, manage and improve these negative beliefs.
