I offer supportive, confidential, non-judgemental proactive counselling in a warm, comfortable, safe environment. I work mainly from a Pluralistic approach meaning that I truly believe in a person’s ability to grow and develop in the way that is best for them and by integrating approaches to counselling such as psychodynamic, person-centred and CBT we can work together to get you to a better place. I have found that many problems have their roots buried in past experiences, yet my approach is always flexible, client centred and focused primarily on client growth.

Hi I'm Lindsay and I specialise in working with Anxiety and low self-esteem. I am a qualified Integrative Therapist. I work with many issues but specialise in improving confidence and mood, and lowering anxiety & stress. I realised how effective CBT was in working with Anxiety & Low Self-Esteem very early in my career in my very first placement! I trained further and view CBT as a major strategy in my model, along with Assertivness Training and Counselling. Prior to establishing my own business I was an associate at Sheffield CBT Practice and Cornerstone Therapy Centre, both well-established practices in Sheffield.

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.
