ASSERTIVENESS - SELF ESTEEM

Assertiveness – Self Esteem

A healthy level of self-esteem is important in life – especially at work and in our relationships – but traumatic events can have a substantial impact on our sense of self-worth. Then there are issues from our childhood and our family environment which can also take their toll upon our ability to think positively about ourselves. Having low self esteem can lead to lack of assertiveness. Where you feel your opinion does not matter and fear going after what is best for yourself.

Persistent negative thinking can create a vicious cycle and can lead you to avoid taking on all kinds of activities and tasks because you fear failure. This can sometimes lead to a catch 22 situation as cutting yourself off from life’s challenges can leave you feeling even more hopeless and unhappy.

 

ASSERTIVENESS

 

If you are feeling exhausted, lack of motivation, suffer a fear of failure, or always thinking negatively about your abilities and opportunities, and you wish life was better then you are probably suffering from low self-esteem and a lack of confidence, and you may benefit from low self esteem therapy which can help you to help get you back on track.

Counselling for low self-esteem

Counselling can help you explore how your low self-confidence may have evolved from your earlier childhood experiences or more recent events, as well as reviewing how your day-to-day life is being affected and how you would like things to change.

By changing our negative interpretations of ourselves, we can change how we feel and improve our self-esteem at the same time.

At my practise, I will will work with you to boost your self-esteem and increase your confidence.

It will help you:

  • Understand the underlying causes of your anger/irritability
  • Examine the thoughts, feelings and behaviours that contribute to low confidence
  • Gain self-understanding and insight
  • Improve your self-image
  • Help you to become more assertive and positive

Together we will redefine your hopes and expectations, explore background factors and begin your journey to developing inner strength and a strong core of self-belief.
