Self Esteem & Confidence Building Therapy in Walnut Creek

Do you…

… struggle with low confidence and low self esteem?

… set yourself to a much higher standard that you do others?

… have a hard time doing things for you rather than others? (put others needs before your own)

… struggle to trust yourself?

… have a hard time having your own opinions and voicing them?

… fear taking a challenge because you might fail?

… feel fearful that others may judge or criticize you?

… struggle to take compliments from others?

… need to put on a “front” for others so they don’t reject or abandon you?

Living with low self worth can be difficult. But I’m here to tell you:

Having low self esteem is not a character flaw.

In fact the “roots” are a lot more complicated than that.

Often when someone is suffering from low self esteem and confidence, it isn’t something that someone just “has”. It’s not a character defect that you’re born with. Rather, there are many reasons why someone may be suffering with low self esteem.

Naturally, the causes can be very different for everyone. One person may have developed a low self confidence from being a victim of bullying during childhood. Another person may have experienced some form of abuse. While another person may have experienced academic challenges throughout school. Either way, all are incredibly valid and deserve healing.

This is where therapy can help improve self esteem
