Low Self-Esteem

Low self-esteem can lead to depression and anxiety often directly linked to lack of assertiveness and/or poor problem solving skills.  

Symptoms include:

  • seeking approval of others, this often manifests in modern day, as a need for regular validation on social media, 
  • lacking confidence in your own ability to make decisions, and/or,
  • questioning your own sense of self.

At the base of all this are often 'distorted thinking errors,’  developed over time, often with coping strategies, serving to reinforce the problem rather than resolving it.  

Learning to trust yourself, and to become more in control of your feelings, thoughts, and behaviours can help build self-confidence and esteem.   Learning self-hypnosis in sessions serves to help build confidence further, beyond the therapy room.

Low self-esteem can also be linked to 'impostor syndrome': a feeling of being out of your own depth in situations, feeling others are better than you, or better placed to do your job, though in reality others often feel the same, likewise, you may feel 'different,‘ or alone.
