“Self-esteem is not a luxury;
it is a profound spiritual need.”
When I started to work with people that had low self-esteem, I noticed that my clients had a poor view of themselves. Inferiority led them to compare themselves to others. And at the same time, I noticed that they had different ways of coping with their low self-esteem. Sometimes they masked their insecurity using procrastination, perfectionism or criticism. Other times, they exhibited feelings of powerlessness, anger and worthlessness. If not dealt with correctly, these negative thoughts can have severe impact on every-day-life.
We use Beck's cognitive therapy to work with low self-esteem and the core believes of the client to create action plans, identify goals, and work with strengths and positive thoughts and attitudes.
