Counselling for Self-Esteem in Leeds
In Person | Phone | Online
Self-esteem is the evaluation we have of ourselves - who we are as a person, what we are good at and what we can achieve. Low self-esteem can make it difficult to feel able to engage with things that could bring happiness.
The therapy I offer can provide a valuable opportunity to reflect on how this evaluation has formed, how it is being applied in everyday life and past experiences that may challenge low self-esteem.
Throughout my career, I have worked within frontline mental health services supporting people with low self-esteem to bring positive changes to their lives such as:
Working 1-1 with a caseload of clients with severe and enduring mental health difficulties to recognise their strengths and participate in new activities to build upon these and gain confidence.
Establishing and facilitating a monthly cultural programme for migrants and refugees to gain confidence to integrate within British society.
Supporting clients who have been out of work for over a year due to mental health difficulties to recognise and effectively communicate their experience and abilities to regain meaningful employment.
I have worked with many clients within my counselling practice who have felt their low self-esteem is holding them back. This experience further helps me to offer therapeutic support for the range of issues low self-esteem can bring such as:
Withdrawing from social contact because it feels too difficult and that there is nothing valuable to offer.
Being dissatisfied with work and believing change isn’t possible.
Struggling to make new friends or find a partner.
Engaging with less helpful ways of coping such as drinking, smoking or binge eating.
Feeling unfulfilled with daily life and disempowered to make positive changes.
