Low Self-Esteem Counselling in London
What is Self-Esteem?
Self-esteem can be described as having confidence in your own abilities and values. It does not mean thinking that you are the best at everything you do, but feeling comfortable with yourself even when you are not. It is accepting yourself, with all your strengths and weaknesses, while still taking opportunities for self-development. Self-esteem means having trust and faith in yourself. Self-esteem is in essence a measurement. We are ourselves against a range of criteria, and the result is an estimate of our personal view of our value or worth. Some people tend to rate themselves very inaccurately or very harshly. This is turns lead to low self-esteem, since based on our negative perceptions, we may end up undervaluing ourselves. Low self-esteem tends to develop during our childhoods.
