Self-esteem has to do with a person’s confidence, feelings of adequacy, and the overall way they think of themselves. If someone is unsure of themselves, they may feel unworthy, nervous, or sad. Self-esteem issues can also stem from other mental health concerns, such as anxiety, trauma, or depression.
Available Treatment Options
The bulk of counseling interventions for improving self-esteem include challenging negative thought patterns. Understanding the root of these thoughts can also be helpful in therapy. Therapists and counselors can help people process and resolve harmful childhood messages, challenge negative thoughts, and set goals for self-empowerment and self-love.
