Self-Esteem & Confidence Counselling, Calgary

It is of practical value to learn to like yourself. Since you must spend so much time with yourself you might as well get some satisfaction out of the relationship.

~ Norman Vincent Peale ~

Has lack of confidence caused you to live below your potential?

Self-esteem is the way a person thinks and feels about themselves. It reflects a person’s overall evaluation of his or her own worth.

What is Positive Self-Esteem?

Positive self-esteem is a feeling of pride in yourself, of being worthwhile, having a sense of faith in your abilities. It helps you be resilient, to handle failure and disappointment without beating yourself up.

What is Low Self-Esteem?

Low self-esteem isn’t simply feeling bad about something you did, such as when you’re disappointed in not reaching a desired goal. Rather, low self-esteem is about negative generalizations of your overall sense of self such as:

● “I’m such a failure”
● “I’m so stupid”
● “Why, I can’t get anything right”
● “I’ll never make anything of myself”
● “No one really likes you”
● “I’m only acceptable if I succeed”

What are the Effects of Low Self-Esteem?

Having low self-esteem will cause you to respond negatively to others and to life. Low self-esteem can cause you to give up, resulting in hopelessness and unfulfilled potential.

Where does Low Self-Esteem come from?

There are many contributors, some external and others internal. We live in a very competitive world where people can put you down for not being like them. We are raised by imperfect parents, or even neglectful or abusive ones. We make mistakes and don’t have anyone to tell us that it’s okay to learn from them, so we internalize this as being a bigger failure than it is.

Even high-achievers suffer from low self-worth, believing that unless they stay at the top they have no value. It’s exhausting to live in a mind that suffers with low self-esteem. It will always result in depression and leave us feeling that no matter what we do, it will never be enough.

How Can Counselling Help?

Counselling assists you in looking at what has contributed to your low self-esteem. It can help change the way you think and feel about yourself. It can give you the skills to:

1.  Retrain your mind to let go of negative self-talk

2.  Improve your social skills & confidence

3.  Be more assertive and get heard

4.  Let go of past failures and let-downs

5.  Develop a solid & positive sense of self

We all deserve to wake up in the morning and feel good about who we are, no matter the circumstance.
