The opinions, feelings, and thoughts we have about ourselves make up our self-esteem. Our self-esteem is shaped by our early experiences, and it can often be influenced by positive and negative life experiences.

Low self-esteem is frequently accompanied by shame. Shame is the dread of not being good enough to be liked or to have a sense of belonging. Frequently this shame can lead to a powerful, judgmental voice in our thoughts that is constantly critical.

What are some signs of low self-esteem?

  • Poor Self-Confidence
  • Engaging in People Pleasing
  • Lack of Boundaries
  • Constantly Comparing Self to Others
  • Inability to Express their own Needs
  • Inability to Accept Compliments

How a therapy can solve your problem?

Therapy can help give you resources and tools to increase self-acceptance, self-compassion and self-love. The foundation of a healthy self-esteem is the ability to see oneself accurately, accept and value ourselves unconditionally, even with our imperfections.
