We all have times when we lack confidence and feel low about ourself, but when it is a long term issue it can have a harmful impact on our mental health, and relationships.

Self-esteem is the opinion you have of yourself. When our self esteem is healthy, we tend to have a positive outlook on life, and are well equipped to deal with the challenges life throws at us. When your self esteem is low, you see yourself in a more negative and critical way, making us less able to face the challenges we have in life. We are all born with the same level of self-esteem, but the messages we receive as we go through life impacts how we see ourselves.


We are bombarded on a daily basis with things which make us question our own self worth - images of models and perfect bodies all over social media (which nobody tells you has been photoshopped to remove the imperfections), the instant availability of photo filters meaning even our 'friends' look better than we do on their social media. We're constantly told we should strive to have a bigger house, or a better car, or be a better parent, or a better friend, or a better son or daughter. It starts at an early age too - schools telling our children they need to revise more, get better grades, work harder. Stress, serious illness, bereavement - they can all have a negative effect too.


The problem is that once the 'you're not good enough' message gets inside you, it tends to stay there.


I will work with you to replace the negative message with positive ones - you can be the self confident, 'loving life' person you want to be, without making any physical changes to your appearance or life.
