Low self esteem can leave you feeling worthless, isolating yourself from friends and family, avoiding compliments or praise, or comparing yourself to others.

Self esteem issues often begin in young childhood.  Perhaps you had a difficult family life, experienced verbal or physical abuse, were bullied, or just constantly felt like you weren't good enough.  While low self esteem is sometimes an occasional problem rather than a constant companion, if it's beginning to affect your life and mental health then this may be a good time to get some support.

Therapy can help you reshape your beliefs about yourself, build a strong support network, and replace these negative beliefs with confidence, kindness, and self-compassion.  Tools like journaling, challenging negative thoughts, and gently expanding your comfort zone can support you greatly in your journey to building healthier self esteem.
