Low Self-Esteem

How you think and feel about yourself can greatly impact your life choices. Low self-esteem can hold you back in life and promote feelings of worthlessness. Our modern world, in which social media plays a growing part, can lead to people constantly comparing themselves and their achievements with others, often unrealistically. As a result, this can highlight our insecurities. We may begin to see ourselves negatively, losing sight of what makes us unique and valid. We can begin to feel inadequate and dissatisfied.

Low self-esteem often begins in childhood. Different people (teachers, friends, siblings, parents) and the media send us both positive and negative messages about ourselves. However, the negative messages tend to be the one that stay with you.

Living with low self-esteem can impact on your mental health and lead to problems such as depression and anxiety.

At The Eaves, our counsellors and psychologists can help you to gain a sense of your own self-worth, enabling you to feel more content. They can help you recognise unhelpful patterns of thinking and challenge them.

I felt confident talking about problems I was having in my life. Has really made a difference for me and helped me understand myself/thoughts/feelings a lot better.

I was impressed by how quickly I could talk to someone and arrange my first session. [my Counsellor] has been great as a therapist – she put me at ease immediately, made me feel comfortable and helped me see things in different ways that will help going forward. Thanks everyone.

This experience has been positive and supportive. I feel more in control and empowered. I still have the issues but am currently more confident to deal with my emotions. Thank you.
