I have experience working with clients struggling with depression, anxiety, family difficulties, stress, trauma, historical abuse, relationship difficulties, addiction problems, and self esteem issues.
It's OK to not be OK... Everyone struggles sometimes, and when we are struggling, one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves is to talk to someone about our struggles. My aim is to help you. I have experienced therapy from both sides of the equation and, like you, have struggled with my own difficulties. I believe that all of us have the potential to develop and become who we are supposed to be. Sometimes it takes some digging and self exploration to reach that goal, and I offer walk alongside you as you to do this.

Life is complex - as are we! It’s no surprise then that in our modern, frenetic world many of us may feel overwhelmed or less able to cope than ever before. Feelings of being ‘stuck’, distressed, anxious or unhappy can happen to anyone. If this sounds familiar, then perhaps it’s time for you to start prioritising your own emotional wellbeing.

My typical clients are those affected with different forms of compulsive / addictive behaviours - these might include Porn, Sex and Love Addictions; Gambling & Narcotics abuse; or those who are Workaholics. Usually clients first see me when they have reached a major crisis point in their lives and are seeking a person who has an understanding of their issues and how to help change their situation by tackling their problems head-on. I also undertake Relational and Pyschosexual therapy for individuals and couples. Further details on my background and approach can be found online at www.trustedtherapeutics.com

Deciding on therapy can be a huge step for many and there is a reason why you’re on this page today. Maybe you’ve not been yourself recently? Or you’re in a situation that you feel you have no control over? Perhaps you’ve always struggled with anxieties or low mood and it’s starting to get in the way of moving forward in life. Perhaps there is no communication or understanding with loved ones and family and everything tried so far in the past has failed. Whatever your personal circumstance, therapy will give you the ability to feel more in control of your situation rather than overwhelmed.

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.
