Self-Esteem Counseling

SELFESTEEM

What is Self-esteem?

Your self-esteem is how much you respect yourself, how desirable or worthy you feel, and how confident you are that you can face life’s challenges. When you have strong self-esteem, you feel that you can accomplish your goals, and you expect others to treat you with the dignity and respect that everyone deserves.
When you have weak or low self-esteem, rather than respecting yourself you talk down to yourself. Instead of feeling desirable, you feel ashamed; instead of believing you can accomplish your desires, you feel powerless. This feeling of worthlessness and lack of control grows into feelings of vulnerability, loneliness, and guilt.

Causes of Low Self-esteem

You began developing your self-esteem in early childhood. When your parents praised you for your successes or when you accomplished a difficult task, your self-esteem grew. On the other hand, when your hard work was unappreciated or when you were left alone or unappreciated, your self-esteem was damaged.

Symptoms of Low Self-esteem

This lack of self-esteem can often lead to other complications, each of which can further damage your self-esteem. The following conditions are often associated with a damaged self-esteem:
Social or general anxiety
Depression
Shame and unnecessary guilt
Codependency
Perfectionism
Feeling inadequate or powerless
In addition, people with low self-esteem are vulnerable to physical, sexual and emotional abuse. This self-perpetuating cycle leaves its victim unable to escape alone.

Self-esteem Counseling

There is hope and help available! Our counselors employ various counseling activities for self-esteem recovery. The most obvious sign of a low self-esteem is negative self-talk. Our clients with damaged self-esteem constantly compare themselves to others and then criticize themselves based on those—naturally shallow—criteria.
