Self-esteem counselling is an important tool to help a person basically feel better about who they are and what they offer to those around them. If a person has low self-esteem, they might not even realize how their view of themselves is not really accurate but is based on wrong assumptions of their abilities and strengths. It can effect how a person experiences their world, how they view their hopes and dreams and impacts important decisions such as schooling, occupation, and making friends.
Low self-esteem can be addressed through meaningful counselling. Through the process of therapy, a person’s view of themselves and their strengths and challenges are gradually explored. The aim is to help a person develop a more realistic view of themselves, based on more objective information. Self-esteem counselling often involves Cognitive Behavioural Therapy which is a powerful tool that helps a person develop a healthier way of thinking and feeling.
