Self-Esteem and Self-Worth Issues
Self-esteem can be defined as someone’s confidence in their worth and abilities. When someone has an issue with self-esteem, they may believe that have little value to other people. Low self-esteem can lead to mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety, and this is becoming more apparent today in young men than in any other demographic.
There are many different causes of low self-esteem. If someone loses a job, goes through a breakup, or has any issues with substance abuse, then it is likely that they will suffer from a low sense of self-worth. Improving self-esteem can take time, but various strategies can be sustained to maintain a strong sense of self-esteem. Success in the workplace, healthy relationships, and better lifestyle choices regarding exercise and diet can increase the worth of an individual. Therapy is important to recognise what plans need to be put in place to increase self-esteem. Interventions such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and integrative therapies lead to self-actualisation.
Self-Esteem and Self-Worth Issues, Psychology Scotland Glasgow
Being low on confidence can impact your level of motivation. You may consistently tell yourself that you are disposable and offer no worth to the people or world around you. At Psychology Scotland, we realise how difficult these thoughts are and how much they impact your life. One of our priorities has been to create an environment that works toward the betterment of all our patients. Whether you have experience with psychological counselling or are completely new to the prospect, you can be assured of a network of people at our centre that have your interests in mind.
All our therapeutic interventions are supported by strong empirical evidence. The professional therapists that run our programmes will initially assess your needs and put you on a course that will benefit you in the long term. Once you enrol, you will begin developing the skills to better manage your self-perception. As you progress through therapy, your sense of self will improve, as will your mental wellbeing. The skills you gain during your programme will equip you with the skills to make choices to increase your self-esteem. At Psychology Scotland, we want you to succeed in your relationships and endeavours.
Treatment for self-esteem and a low sense of self-worth is usually action-oriented. Therapies like CBT will help you observe your current state, allowing you to implement decisions to improve your life. Other interventions, such as acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), will help you acknowledge issues that may be out of your control. This is particularly important for self-worth issues as it will enable you to focus on the matters you have power over. Whichever programme is chosen for you, therapy will grant you space and time to think about how you benefit the world. As your self-image changes, so will your confidence. Looking ahead toward the future is often difficult when you are occupied with other thoughts, but taking that first step into therapy will help you understand your worth. Psychology Scotland believes in your potential, and we are ready to support you through your journey.
