When it comes to self-esteem, only one opinion matters – your own.
And even that one should be carefully evaluated as we tend to be our own harshest critic.
There are three simple questions every person should ask themselves when evaluating how they feel about their own self-worth:
- Do you believe in your ability to reach your goals and dreams?
- Can you ask for what you want and need in a relationship?
- Do you have the confidence to accept new challenges and opportunities in life?
If you answered no to any of the above questions, you may want to consider self-esteem therapy to increase your self-confidence and your self-worth.
The way we see ourselves affects how others see us and how we move in the world. When we come from a place of feeling “not good enough” we make assumptions that others will see us in a negative light. We overestimate the possibility of failure and we underestimate our ability to handle life challenges.
Not feeling good enough can result in working hard to prove yourself as worthy – striving for perfection; or remaining small so others will not see what you fear most – that you really aren’t good enough. Both create an experience of emotional pain, isolation and disconnection. You deserve so much more than that.
When we work with you, you will be guided to:
- Understand the core beliefs that create and perpetuate your low self-esteem
- Learn new ways to think about yourself
- Discover new ways to talk to yourself that are more realistic and compassionate
- Let go of shame
- Develop emotional resilience
- Learn to set boundaries
- Enhance your empathy for yourself and others
- Dare to dream!
Believing in yourself can be a challenge. But staying where you are is much more difficult. Our team of therapists can guide you on the road to feeling better about yourself and your life. Call today to get started.
