Counselling for Low Self Esteem at BeWellPathway

What is low self-esteem?

People with low self-esteem often have negative thoughts and feelings towards who they are as a person, their body and physical appearance, their confidence in making decisions, and their overall sense of worth or value.

People with low self-esteem often have the belief that other people are more important, more skilled, smarter, kinder and overall better people than they are and often discount the positive aspects of themselves so that their perceived reality fits into this belief. Unfortunately, this can lead into an unfulfilling life and in many cases, people react passively to life and “end up” wherever they have “ended up” without the self-agency to chart their own course. Fortunately, we can build our self-esteem through self-exploration, fostering growth promoting relationships, maintaining boundaries and treating ourselves as someone of value; including changing negative self-talk and reframing our internal reality.
