Self- esteem is how we view ourselves. This view of ourselves is often impacted by how others treat us, or what they tell us they think of us.
When someone has low self-esteem they often see themselves as being insignificant or lacking any importance, either to themselves, to their families or to their work colleagues. These individuals are likely to self-criticize regularly, & they accept any criticism without question as they feel so worthless. In a sense this is a ‘learnt behaviour’ – which means that this individual has become so used to seeing themselves as unimportant that they accept all criticism without question.
Claire will work with the client to explore when this way of thinking came to be for the client & over time they’ll work together to shift the perspective from a place of negativity to a more positive way of being.
