Self-Esteem Counseling

Self-esteem and Psychotherapy Counseling

Beliefs about oneself are formed from past experiences. They are often viewed as statements of fact, whether they are accurate or not. If life experiences and influential people from the past or present are negative, “self talk” thoughts will likely to be negative as a result. 

It's best to view self-esteem as a continuum that will tend to fluctuate with time and circumstance. Every person will experience these fluctuations, but a healthy balance and an accurate view of yourself will help promote positive relationships and interactions with others.

Factors that Influence Self-esteem

Every individual has a unique current situation and set of past experiences. Many factors can influence a person's self-esteem including:

  • Experiences at work, school or home
  • Thoughts and perceptions of self
  • Reactions from co-workers, family or others in public
  • Societal status
  • Culture and religion

Your relationships with family and peers are normally the most influential. Over a period of time, your interactions can inform your level of self-esteem. Repeated negative feedback from close relationships and contacts through criticism, teasing, or devaluation can lead to a struggle with low self-esteem.

Counseling and You

Your own thoughts are truly within your control. Continually focusing on flaws and mistakes prevents you from realizing your full potential. My counseling sessions help you reframe your negative thoughts in a positive light and focus on positive qualities and improvement. Through counseling you can learn to:

  • Be more assertive in expressing opinions and needs
  • Feel more confident about decision-making
  • Develop secure relationships and prevent unhealthy interactions
  • Avoid being overcritical of yourself and make self-improvement more positive
  • Learn how to cope with stress and disappointment

Healthy self-esteem has a wide range of positive effects on nearly everything in your life. With my help you'll be able to find a sense of self-worth that improves your current situation and prevents mental health conditions and disorders from developing in the future.
