Understanding and Raising Self-esteem

A short course for Women

Increased self-esteem leads to improvements in all aspects of life, relationships, careers, health etc. Most importantly, a positive level of self-esteem changes the experience of daily life from one dominated by insecurity, anxiety and stagnation to one of confidence, safety and growth.

This three week course using a variety of counselling theories and techniques will focus on improving self awareness, building assertiveness, examining unhelpful core beliefs and much more. Much of the course will include experiential learning. In this course we will cover:

What is self-esteem? –Is this the same as confidence? How do we assess our own self-esteem? Body esteem – how do we feel about our bodies?

How do we develop low self-esteem? – What factors lead to a robust sense of self and equally what experiences might erode this?

How can we raise self-esteem? Learn strategies to challenge negative self-belief and undertake developmental exercises which will build your self- esteem.
