Therapy for Better Self-Esteem and Confidence
"I'm my own worst critic."
"I feel like everyone else is doing a better job than me."
"I put everyone else before myself."
"I feel like a fraud at work and like I don't know what I'm doing."
"I'm the hardest on myself."
"I'm constantly doubting myself and rethinking the things that I do."
"I feel like I'm at war with my body and the way that I look."
"Everyone else has it together. What's wrong with me?"
"I stand in my own way more than anything else."
The way we feel about ourselves can set the stage for everything else in our lives.
But many of us feel like we are standing on shaky foundation.
We are constantly doubting and questioning ourselves, overanalyzing and rethinking the things we do or say, comparing ourselves to those around us (and feeling like we are coming out on the losing end), criticizing ourselves, and having internal battles with ourselves on the daily.
This can impact how we move through life. It can affect how we operate in relationships, at work, and how happy and calm we feel overall.
Maybe we try to shift things, but we just find ourselves getting stuck.
In therapy, I can help you uncover the things that get in the way from you developing a real, positive relationship with yourself. We will look at the core issues that underscore your current challenges, and work on the factors that undermine your self-esteem. This will allow us to help you to create true, meaningful change in the relationship with yourself, to see yourself in a clearer, more positive light, and unburden you from the stress and weight of feeling badly about yourself.
Some areas where we can build confidence include:
+Body Image: understanding and changing negative self-image related to our bodies, weight, and physical appearance
+Life Roles: working through stress and self-doubt that can come in various roles such as in marriage, motherhood, friendships, managing work/life balance, pregnancy, etc.
+Work and Career: processing feelings of insecurity and inadequacy, questions of self-worth and abilities, while building a sense of empowerment and self-assurance.
+Relationships: build ability to recognize and assert your needs, manage relationship doubts, and feel more secure in relationships overall.
