Therapy for Self-Esteem 

You find it difficult to keep up with what you, and others, think you should be doing with your life. You often compare yourself to friends, family or co-workers and feel as though you are not good enough. You believe that you should be accomplishing much more than you currently are and others achievements or successes leave you feeling insecure and down on yourself. 

You are tired of never feeling good enough.  

We get it and we're here to help!

 

We'd love to help you break free from self-defeating thoughts, beliefs and behaviors, so you can manage your low-self esteem it in ways that feel healthier for you and begin to feel confident in yourself.

  • Academic difficulties

  • Bullying without adequate support

  • Abuse and trauma

  • Emotionally distant parents

  • Disapproval from others

  • Extreme criticism from parents, caregivers or authority figures

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy & Strengths-Based Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Strengths-Based Therapy are therapeutic approaches that are commonly used to help treat low self-esteem. These are evidence-based approaches that encourage you to take charge by implementing strategies and techniques that allow you to address your negative perception of yourself and build confidence. 

These psychotherapy approaches aid you in understanding the thoughts and feelings that influence your behaviors, and how these behaviors impact your life in certain ways. You gain skills and techniques that assist you in being more in control of how you think, feel and react. 

We incorporate CBT and ACT strategies into our therapy sessions to guide you in identifying and processing the connections between your emotions, thoughts and physical experiences. The goal is to help you break free from self-defeating thoughts, beliefs and behaviors, so you can manage your low-self esteem it in ways that feel healthier for you and begin to develop increased esteem and confidence.
