Self Esteem Therapy

Welcome to Behr Psychology! We specialize in self-esteem therapy to help you rediscover your strength, resilience, and worth. Our dedicated therapists and psychologists foster a supportive environment where you can learn much about helping self, build self-confidence, address your concerns, and work on your personal growth.

Understanding self esteem issues

Self esteem is our internal view of ourselves, essentially how we evaluate our own worth. Healthy self-esteem involves feeling good about yourself and believing in your skills and qualities. On the other hand, people with low self esteem tend to see themselves as imperfect, insufficient, or undeserving of love. Constant self-criticism might increase this negative self-perception, distorting a person’s sense of worth and causing anxiety, depression, social disengagement, and loneliness. Additionally, it plays a significant role in body image disorders and eating disorders, including binge eating, mindful eating, and restrictive eating behaviors.

A significant modern challenge to self-esteem comes from extensive social media use. Constant exposure to idealized images can lead to unhealthy comparisons and lowered self-worth. This is particularly obvious among young adults who are heavily influenced by pop culture and online portrayals.

Low self-esteem can affect every aspect of life, from how you interact with others to your professional achievements and personal relationships. Therapy offers a strong support system, helping individuals nurture self-acceptance and fostering a healthier self-image. At Behr Psychology, we recognize the critical role that a healthy self-image plays in overall well-being. Our therapy for self-esteem is designed to address the underlying causes of your self-doubts and equip you with the tools to enhance your self-perception and treat yourself with more compassion and love.

Myths about Self Esteem Therapy

Myth: People with high self-confidence are arrogant and narcissistic.

Fact: Healthy self-esteem is actually about having a balanced and accurate view of oneself, not about feeling superior to others.

Myth: Self-esteem therapy takes years to be effective.

Fact: Many people see significant improvements in their self-esteem through short-term therapy, depending on the methods used and their engagement.

Myth: Self-esteem issues are not as serious as other psychological problems.

Fact: Because low self-esteem can be a root cause of a variety of mental health concerns, such as anxiety, depression, and relationship problems, it is essential to address this issue.

Myth: You don’t need therapy for self esteem. You can boost your self-esteem by simply repeating positive affirmations.

Fact: While positive affirmations can be helpful, effective self-esteem therapy frequently includes deeper psychological work to modify underlying beliefs about oneself.
