Low self-esteem and confidence

How you feel about yourself, and how you talk to and take care of yourself, affects all areas of your life. You may not feel confident trying new hobbies or applying for a new job. You may have worries about your body image, or feel like hiding away and avoiding social situations, and this can sometimes lead to anxiety or depression.

If you have low self-esteem or confidence it can affect your quality of life, including your relationships with others. This may stem from messages you received growing up, or be a result of more recent experiences.

The way you speak to yourself can really impact your self-esteem. Our therapists will encourage you to work with this ‘inner critic’ and help you access a more supportive way of relating to yourself. They can offer you a safe and non-judgemental space in which to explore your feelings of low confidence and self-esteem and look at the deeper issues causing you to feel this way.
