SELF ESTEEM

We all have periods in our lives where we doubt our abilities and think negatively of ourselves.

SELF ASSESSMENT
The Rosenberg questionnaire will help you judge whether you are experiencing low self-esteem

Our levels of self-esteem can change regularly swinging from positive thoughts and feeling great to feeling low and having self-critical thoughts. However low self-esteem where we constantly think things like I’m incapable, no good, I’m a failure, I’m not good enough etc. can knock your self-confidence and make it hard to feel worthwhile. Using a CBT approach in treatment for low self-esteem will involve some of the following interventions

  • identifying negative self-beliefs (usually present from childhood)
  • identifying self-critical thinking and then developing skills to challenge these thoughts (thought records and identifying typically distorted of unhelpful thing styles)
  • learning to become more self-compassionate (use of self-compassionate exercises as part of homework)
  • assertiveness
  • positive qualities journal
