Counselling for Self Esteem

Having strong self-esteem is important as if you believe in yourself,  it builds your self-confidence, gives you a feeling of control and direction in your life and helps you to rise to and deal with life’s challenges, and to live a rich and full life.

If you have low self-esteem or lack confidence in yourself, it might be like having a little voice inside your head telling you that you can’t do something, questioning your ability to try something new, or perhaps even getting in the way of living your life.

Low self-esteem is like driving through life with your hand-brake on.

Maxwell Maltz

Low self-esteem can start in childhood, whether following a traumatic experience, or as a result of abuse, or for some, just through not having the loving family relationship which gave them the confidence be themselves.

But even if you have well-developed self-esteem, life’s challenges can cause us to lose confidence in ourselves, such as:-

  • Loss of your job
  • Redundancy
  • Marital or relationship breakdown
  • Losing a loved one
  • Financial problems
  • Physical/health issues
  • Substance abuse/addictions

Many people liken the effect of one of these challenges on them as like being left adrift and rudderless in a little boat on a big sea, unable to control where you are going, feeling afraid and out of control.

Many people can overcome their low self-esteem and confidence issues, with the right support. One-to-one counselling support can help you to identify where your low self-esteem and low confidence issues have come from, and to finds the tools to help you break free and start to live the life you want.

Everyone’s a star and deserves the right to twinkle.
