Heart-centred Counselling: Supporting you when you need it most.
Living with low self-esteem can be lonely and isolating. Perhaps you compare yourself to others and never feel that you’re good enough. While others appear confident and happy you find yourself plagued with self-doubt, making socialising or taking on new responsibilities and challenges, overwhelming. This can crippling, undermining your confidence, which can put a huge strain on your relationships. It can feel like no one understands, or perhaps you feel embarrassment and too afraid of judgment to speak to loved ones, so you struggle on alone.
Feeling stuck, with no motivation and feeling hopeless about the future can create sadness and self-blame. Negative beliefs of yourself impacts your behaviour and can limit your life and impact your relationships. This reinforces those negative feelings and beliefs and creates a cycle which can feel like a downward spiral with no escape. It can be difficult to get out of this cycle alone, leaving you feeling hopeless and defeated.
I’m here for you, providing you with the support you need when you need it most.
Counselling is a safe, non-judgmental space where you can get the support you need to understand the root of these debilitating feelings and beliefs. We will work together, uncovering and understanding how these beliefs have developed and how they impact your life now.
By reflecting on life events, key relationships and patterns of thought and behaviour you can gain a depth of insight and understanding, illuminating new perspectives, thoughts and feelings. Finding self-acceptance, freedom from over-thinking and developing resilience can have transformative effects on your relationships, work and outlook upon life. Feeling worthy as you are can be a huge relief and enable you to feel more confident and hopeful for the future.
You may question whether you are worthy of this help. This inner voice may have kept you safe but now it’s stopping you from being you and living the life you deserve. It’s time to find the freedom to be the real you and I’m here to support you every step of the way.
