How it Feels to Have Low Self-Esteem

With low self esteem, you may feel the need to blend in and have no needs just to be liked. Or that you don’t deserve the good things in life: romantic partners, financial stability, positive attention and the space to be yourself, truly. Low self esteem can lead to:

  • People pleasing
  • Tolerating abuse
  • Anxiety and Depression
  • Lack of connection to yourself
  • Feeling “not good enough” regularly
  • Constantly assuming you’re doing something wrong
  • Fabricating parts of your personality so people will accept you

You didn’t choose to have low self esteem, but you can choose to heal it. It would be an honor to support you in reclaiming your self worth and your life.

FAQs About Self Esteem Therapy

Low self-esteem can stem from various sources such as negative childhood experiences, bullying, abusive relationships, or constant criticism from significant people in your life. Sometimes, societal pressures and unrealistic standards can also play a role.

Common signs of low self-esteem include:

  • Constant self-criticism and negative self-talk
  • Difficulty accepting compliments

Therapists can help improve self-esteem by providing a safe and supportive environment to explore and challenge negative beliefs. These can be any negative belief about yourself that you picked up as a result of trauma, abuse, and/or neglect. Beliefs like “I’m not good enough,” “I’m too much,” “nobody likes me or could ever love me,” and “I’m a loser.”

I use various techniques like cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) to reframe negative thoughts, teach assertiveness and self-compassion, and help you build a more positive self-image through gradual exposure to confidence-building activities. We can also process negative memories together using EMDR therapy, and shake off stress using somatic therapies. I’m not just trauma-informed, but trauma-trained. I can help you overcome trauma that led to low self esteem.

The time it takes to recover from low self-esteem varies for each person. It depends on the underlying causes, your commitment to the process, and the therapeutic methods we use. Some people may see improvements in a few months, while others might take a year or more. The best thing would be to start today with a free 15-minute phone consultation. Just fill out the contact form above or call me at (805) 637-7630.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is often considered the most effective therapy for low self-esteem. However, other approaches like mindfulness-based therapy, EMDR therapy, and somatic therapy have been beneficial for some clients. Trauma and low self esteem are intertwined, and using a variety of methods can help untangle the two and help you heal and feel good enough.

A person with high self-esteem typically:

  • Exhibits confidence and self-assuredness
  • Accepts themselves, including their flaws
  • Is able to set and maintain healthy boundaries
  • Shows resilience in the face of challenges
  • Engages in positive self-talk and self-care
  • Is open to new experiences and learning opportunities
