Feel Better about Yourself with Self-Esteem Counselling
Self-esteem is your opinion of yourself. Life experiences and outside influences can have either a positive or a negative effect on a person’s self- esteem. Low self-esteem may at times make you feel unlovable, awkward, or even incompetent. Poor self-esteem can be remedied but it takes attention and daily practice to correct.
Causes of low self-esteem may stem from:
- Past childhood experiences
- Faulty beliefs about yourself
- Poor parenting
- Social media
- Trauma or abuse
- Stressful life events
- Relationship issues
- Depression and/or anxiety
- Medical problems
- Poor academic performance
Low self-esteem effects quality of life
Low self-esteem can reduce the quality of a person’s life. Constant self criticism can lead to persistent feelings of sadness, depression, anxiety, anger, guilt or shame. It can also lead to relationship problems, fear of trying, fear of judgement, perfectionism, a feeling of hopelessness, lack of self-care, and self harming behaviours such as eating disorders, drug abuse and suicide.
