Hi, I’m Sarah. My own healing journey led me to become a therapist and yoga teacher. I have experienced the benefits and believe in the process. I understand that it takes courage to reach out and engage in therapy. I have welcomed and supported people of different ages and backgrounds in a variety of settings struggling with anxiety, the effects of trauma, low self esteem and relationships. Do you feel anxious or low? Are you finding it hard to heal from sexual abuse, trauma or grief? Do you struggle with shame, guilt, insecurity or anger? Do you find it hard to regulate your emotions? Are you wanting something to change?

Having worked in mental health for 8 years I have extensive experience and specialise in working with low self esteem, trauma, bereavement and anxiety (including stress, worry, panic and social anxiety) I have worked with all age groups including young people and University students.
Hello I'm Fiona, I'm an accredited counsellor/psychotherapist currently providing online sessions. Life can be hard sometimes and we can often find ourselves feeling alone with our thoughts and feelings and unsure of the way forward. In sessions we work together to understand these often complex thoughts and feelings and find ways to understand, process and alter them. By having the support of therapy you will have a safe, confidential space separate to your life to explore your difficulties, whether you consider these big or small problems they can be shared and made sense of together.

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.
