Starting Self-esteem counseling

What is Self-esteem counseling?

Self-esteem counseling is a therapeutic technique that works to improve an individual's self-esteem and, through that, their overall mental health. Self-esteem counselors will help clients discover the roots of their poor self-esteem and work with them to build it back up and improve their quality of life.

How does Self-esteem counseling work?

Self-esteem counseling works by addressing thought or behavioral patterns that may be connected to an individual's low self-esteem and adjusting them to be more helpful and uplifting. Through this process, Thriveworks therapists in Henrico will help clients better understand the reasons behind their low self-esteem and learn to effectively address those reasons, both in therapy and on their own.

Is Self-esteem counseling conducted in person or online?

Thriveworks self-esteem counseling in Henrico, VA is conducted both in person and virtually through online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Self-esteem counseling last?

On average, self-esteem counseling can last around 12 sessions. However, the needs and symptoms of each client will always vary, which means that the duration of counseling will differ as well. Some may find they only require a few sessions, while others might prefer to stay in counseling on an ongoing basis.

Low Self-Esteem is Caused by Several Factors

Our self-esteem level is based on how confident and valuable we feel, affecting our well-being. Low self-esteem can lead to feelings of self-doubt, anger, shame, and social isolation. Childhood experiences, such as criticism or abuse, greatly influence self-esteem.

  • Excessive criticism or abuse by parents and caregivers
  • Lack of positive feedback for accomplishments
  • Avoidance of confidence-building activities
  • Targeting due to physical characteristics or other factors

Symptoms of Low Self-Esteem Include These

  • Negative self-talk
  • Continual sense of failure
  • Comparing oneself to others
  • Feelings of powerlessness
  • Shame or guilt
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Perfectionism

Trish is VERY good at listening and responding with the right questions to get to your issue and literally talk it out. Therapists in the past seemed to have canned suggestions not relating to my specific issues.

I've worked with Domonique and I've seen the care and concern she provides her clients. She is invested in their wellbeing and offers clinically sound services. She is supportive, down to earth, but is also willing to tackle the tough issues, and by doing so, increases clients' growth and sets clients up for long-term success. She supported me in handling various major life changing situations.

I was drinking just to cope with my depression 9 months ago. I thought it was the drinking that caused me to be depressed and miserable. I was so in denial I didn’t see how depressed and sad I really was. I had no hope. Mary put everything in perspective for me and helped challenge me to change. She gave me a little tough love and guidance that I needed. With the help of Mary’s help, coping skills, -and medication, I feel like a new woman! Thanks Mary for all your help! You rock! ❤️

I have used Roberta as a consultant for three years. Her consultations about therapeutic and ethical situations have been both professional and wise. I am a hospital chaplain at a busy hospital and for our most challenging cases, I turn to Roberta. She is responsive and empathetic. I highly recommend Roberta as both a therapist and consultant.

Mrs. Lowenstein is one of my favorite people and one of the best supervisors I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Her commitment to my success as an MSW is nothing short of miraculous. She has advocated for me to get supervision from the Board of Social Work and has been next to me every step of my journey. Rebekah continues to go above and beyond for me and I have not doubt that she will do this for her clients as well. She is patient, funny, personable, competent, and one of the smartest women I know.
