Self-esteem therapy

When we refer to self-esteem we are talking about a person’s perception of himself/herself and his/her relationship to others. The person has concepts and values his qualities and defects in relation to his life and the external world. It is the feelings we have for ourselves, how we feel about our behaviours, attitudes, abilities, achievements and failures.

Causes of low self-esteem

When we are too demanding of ourselves and do not value the achievements we have made, we are likely to end up developing low self-esteem. This inadequate perception of our capabilities and potential limits us as people and often generates a deep sense of unhappiness. To be a little more specific, here are some of the possible causes of low self-esteem:


Disapproval from authority figures

Authority figures, such as parents and teachers, exert a profound influence during childhood. If you grew up hearing that everything you do is wrong, you have probably made this phrase your own and have low self-esteem.

Unloving parents

To grow up and develop healthy self-esteem, it is essential to feel loved. A humiliating phrase can do as much harm as loving indolence. If you had emotionally indifferent parents as a child, it is likely that you have internalised that lack of affection as unworthy of affection.

Overprotective upbringing

At the other extreme are overprotective parents who have inadvertently prevented their children from developing their own capacities. As a result, you may not possess the necessary tools to cope with life’s problems and therefore believe that you are worthless as a person.

Expectations of parents that are too high

When parents demand too much of a child, he or she may feel that he or she is not good enough because, no matter how hard he or she tries, he or she will never meet their standards. Obviously, this feeling spills over into other areas of their performance and deeply affects their self-esteem.

Learning difficulties

Learning difficulties often lead to low self-esteem, especially if the child is ridiculed or reprimanded because of his or her performance or disability. In fact, this is often the case when parents focus only on academic results and do not encourage activities in which the child may feel more comfortable.

Having been a victim of abuse

Bullying, physical violence in the family or emotional abuse are problems that deeply affect our self-image. When you grow up in an environment where you are not in control and you have been a victim of humiliation, it is normal to doubt your abilities and find it difficult to trust people, so that, in the long run, you may develop low self-esteem.

Limiting belief system

Self-esteem problems are not always carried over from childhood, sometimes they arise in adolescence or young adulthood, when we begin to compare ourselves with others and believe that we are not up to their standards. Moreover, in adolescence, peer group assessment is fundamental, so if we are rejected by them, we can remain stuck at this stage.

Why work on self-esteem?

Although there are things you can do on your own to raise your self-esteem, if you have low self-esteem it is important to work with an objective professional to act as a mirror so that you can really get to know, accept and appreciate yourself unconditionally.

In online self-esteem therapy we work on self-knowledge to optimise personal growth and development, valuing the aptitudes and qualities of the person to be able to regain self-confidence, and face everyday situations and problems in a more confident way.

In addition to psychological help, it is important to have the support of family, friends and people close to the patient to help them overcome their discomfort.
