Corinne Mandin Counselling - Self Esteem

Self Esteem

Finding you aren't meeting the goals you want? Need confidence? Feeling stuck? 

We all have capacity for creativity, productivity and growth.

Our self worth is often based on our experiences in childhood with the people who meant the most to us; our families. The way people demonstrated importance, value, and love for us influences our thoughts and feelings about ourselves today. If you were taught you had nothing of value to say, you would probably not be likely to speak with confidence and the expectation of being heard today. If you experienced respect, love and a sense of belonging when you were a child, you may demonstrate confidence and believe you are worthy as an adult.

While we cannot change our past, we can change our beliefs about ourselves, our worth and ultimately the way we interact in the world around us, including our self confidence. 

It is possible to build a healthier self esteem now, to help us experience greater creativity, productivity and growth.

Several strategies are used to address self esteem issues, including discussion, teaching, dynamic exercises and cognitive behavioral techniques.
