I believe that effective therapy takes place in an atmosphere of safety, respect, and caring. When a person comes to therapy, a healing process is already underway. As this process is recognized and strengthened, the client is free to move toward wholeness. I use empathic listening and questions to help clarify the presenting problem and set it in the context of the person's life journey with its healthy call for spiritual and psychological growth. Writing, guided visualization, role playing and art may also be used to bring forth inner wisdom and to explore alternative ways to meet challenges.

Stress, anxiety and depression can quickly take over our lives. This survival mode protects our authentic self yet, in the long term, creates disconnect and misery. I believe that we each have the innate ability to return to our authentic selves as we slowly re-connect to our body and change survival patterns. This belief drives me in collaborating with you to move into your own sense of aliveness. My genuine presence and sensitivity supports creating a safe space for you to start letting go of survival mode and try out a new way of being.

Childhood and relational trauma significantly affect an individual's emotional, psychological, and social development, often resulting in issues like anxiety, depression, addiction, and PTSD. Adult survivors of childhood trauma frequently grapple with low self-esteem, persistent shame, mood swings, and challenges in forming or sustaining meaningful relationships. While you may yearn for close relationships and emotional connections, you simultaneously fear being hurt, abandoned, or betrayed. This trauma can also lead to avoidance behaviours, self-destructive actions, and perfectionism.

Self Esteem Counsellors

When should a person seek therapy for low self-esteem?

When self-esteem problems begin to disrupt the healthy daily functioning of an individual, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If a person finds that they are not engaging with friends for fear of being judged, not completing work assignments because they don’t think they’re capable, or not finding romantic love because they don’t feel they’re worthy of it, a therapist may be able to help.

What are the signs of low self-esteem?

Low self-esteem is a common issue that can affect a person's mental and emotional well-being. Some common signs of low self-esteem include negative self-talk, perfectionism, social anxiety, difficulty making decisions, an inability to set boundaries, people-pleasing, and others. A lack of belief in oneself or one’s abilities and a feeling of not being worthy or deserving underlie most of these characteristics.

What causes low self-esteem?

Feelings of low self-worth can begin in childhood or adulthood. Being raised by a highly critical parent or growing up feeling constant disapproval can stay with a person well into adulthood. Specific issues in adulthood may also be a cause of low self-esteem. An unhappy relationship, a dysfunctional work or school experience can impact a person’s feelings of self-worth.

How can therapy improve self-esteem?

Therapists can help identify negative thought patterns that keep the client stuck in a loop of destructive self-talk and develop coping skills to change the voice in their head. A therapist can help with goal-setting, so that clients are better able to stay on task and build confidence from successfully completing work they’re proud of. Coaching a client on how to better communicate can improve relationships. These skills can result in someone with low self-esteem feeling empowered and living with less fear.
