Low Self Esteem

Dealing with Low Self Esteem is very important. It breeds success. So what is self-esteem? In short, it is the value you place on yourself. Ask yourself some questions:

  1. How much do I really like myself?
  2. How valuable a person am I?
  3. How competent am I at what I do?

Self-esteem is not conceitedness, which is about having an excessively favourable or exaggerated opinion of yourself or your accomplishments. It is also not vanity where you have excessive pride in your accomplishments, abilities or character. It is about a realistic impression of yourself.

Self-destructive beliefs damage your self-esteem and can prevent you having meaningful and productive relationships with others in your life – be it in an interpersonal or professional relationship. Low self-esteem can affect your ability to reach your full potential at work and at play.

We do this by engaging you in a path of self-discovery using cognitive and humanistic methodologies using self-determination approaches as the key to raising your self-esteem.
