Self-Esteem Counselling London

What is Self-Esteem?

Self-esteem is the opinion that you have about yourself. It is something that tends to fluctuate and most people experience moments of low self-esteem, at some point in life. This can be a perfectly normal response to external events, from time to time.

However, when low self-esteem becomes a long-term habit, it can harm your relationships with others, kill your confidence, stunt your ability to assert yourself and feed a cycle of increasing frustration and unhappiness. In fact, research has shown a correlation between low self-esteem and depression.

Benefits of Counselling for Low Self-Esteem

For many people, the biggest benefit of counselling for low self-esteem, is gaining the ability to live their lives with a stronger feeling of freedom and confidence, to be who they truly are. Here are a few of the other benefits KlearMinds self-esteem counselling can help you bring about:
