Self-esteem is a persons opinion of themselves and their sense of self-worth. Sometimes, a persons self-esteem can become so low that they become overly critical of themselves to the point that their quality of life is reduced, resulting in unpleasant, unwanted feelings and experiences.
- Gain an understanding on how self-esteem develops and is maintained
- Focus on addressing unhelpful, self-destructive beliefs and thoughts and establishing a more balanced perspective of self
- Identify and shift unhelpful behaviours whilst learning skills to better cope and manage
- Commit to change for a more meaningful and self-fulfilling life through developing and reinforcing positive self-qualities
