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.
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 Lynchburg 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.
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.
Do you struggle with low self-esteem? Do you lack confidence in social settings? Have you ever felt that you are unlovable or that you are undeserving of affection?
These feelings are common signs of low self-esteem. If you said “Yes” to any of these statements, you’re not alone—and a self-esteem therapist can help.
How Do I Know If I Have Low Self-Esteem?
Many indicators suggest that a person has low self-esteem, including:
- Intense pressure to please others
- An overwhelming desire to maintain a particular appearance
- Anxiety or fear in social settings
- Difficulty making decisions
- Being overly-defensive
- Body language (crossed arms or legs, lack of eye contact)
- Compensating or apologizing for your weaknesses
