If you are sick of not feeling good enough and find yourself sabotaging yourself then this may be the most important website you ever find.
Low self-esteem, shame or poor self worth can be really harmful. It can rob you of the happiness you deserve. But, various methods of counselling can help. By not addressing serious problems with your self worth, you are sabotaging your own happiness. Self-sabotage is not a conscious choice. Who would choose to sabotage their health, career or relationships? Our counsellors often have patients that need our help to stop self-sabotage and gain self-worth.
What causes low self-esteem?
A number of causes can lead to low self worth such as a neglectful or traumatic childhood or domestic abuse. Sometimes this is subtle, however. Research suggests that the early foundations of self worth relate to how our parents treated us. Individuals raised by caregivers who were consistently responsive, attentive and warm tend to have higher self esteem than individuals raised by parents who were unavailable or emotionally cold or individuals with parents who were inconsistently nurturing. Sometimes this message of not being worthy or "good enough" gets lodged into our sub-conscious as a limiting belief. The sub-conscious mind accepts this regardless of whether it reflects something true or false about us.
Self-esteem can vary from context to context. For example some people have a positive sense of self in relation to their sporting abilities or occupational performance but have poor interpersonal (or social) self worth. The reverse can also be true. Poor self-perception in relation to competence can restrict an individual's ability to develop their full capacities in academic, occupational and sporting pursuits. Poor social self-worth can lead to social anxiety, loneliness, and relationship difficulties.
The trained psychotherapists at Bayside Psychotherapy can help you build a positive sense of self and our varied approaches can help you move forward confidently in your life. Our training in counselling, psychotherapy, hypnotherapy (traditional and ericksonian methods), NLP and Buddhist psychotherapy means we have a wide array of tools to help you to feel better about yourself and resolve self-sabotage.
