Problems with low self esteem and low confidence can occur for men and women at any age.
Perhaps you have always felt your self-image wasn’t as positive as you would like but thought it would change with time, or maybe a recent relationship has impacted your sense of self worth.
It could be the case that the cause of your self-esteem issues eludes you. Even if this is the case, self esteem counselling in Newcastle Psychologist & Counselling’s clinic can help you identify and overcome your difficulties with low confidence and self-esteem.
Can You Raise Your Self Esteem as an Adult?
If your goal is to live life with a more stable sense of self confidence, age should not affect your ability to achieve an improvement in self esteem.
While low self-esteem counselling can have a significant impact in adolescence, as the self-image is still being formed, it is still possible to raise your self-esteem as an adult through self-esteem and confidence counselling.
Confidence counselling as an adult is also worthwhile as it can help perform better day to day at home, at work and in your relationships, as well as help you feel better about yourself.
Our counsellors are trained to assess the cause of your confidence problems and to support you as you work towards building a better sense of self esteem, irrespective of your age.
Overcome Pandemic-Related Problems
One aspect of the recent pandemic was its impact on our day to day ability to meet friends, family and engage with our day to day activies.
Though life is slowly returning to a new normal, the transition to returning to work, being around people again, and going back to our normal lives and activities can cause anxiety for some. It is completely normal to experience a change in your self-perception if the activities that sustained your self esteem have had to change considerably.
If this is the case, our team of counsellors, psychologists and therapists are able to help adjust to normal life in a confident and compassionate way.
How do Counselling and Therapy Improve Self-Esteem?
Though there can be a number of causes of low self-esteem and low confidence, ranging from difficult early experiences at home, at school or with others to sudden trauma that shakes our sense of identity, self-esteem and confidence counselling have been show to have benefits in improving our perception of ourselves.
Therapies such as Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) can help you overcome negative thinking and self-criticism, and engage in more helpful self-talk to boost self-esteem and confidence in both the short and long term.
Other approaches such as mindfulness meditation, offered as one to one sessions with Michael Atkinson (our Specialist Mindfulness Teacher), can help you learn to let go of critical thoughts and develop a greater sense of ease and calm within yourself.
