Boost Self-Esteem and Self-Confidence with Therapy & Counselling

Self-esteem and self-confidence are the two pillars of a healthy personality. Both of which play an important role in the actions you take in your life. Lower self-esteem and low self-confidence can mask your real talents and abilities. It can confine you from expanding your horizons and restrict you from what you truly deserve in life.

How can Therapy & Counselling help me improve Self-Esteem and Self-Confidence?

What is the picture that comes to your mind when you think of counselling? If we take a guess, it will be a scene of a counsellor sitting on the other side of the table and talking to you like a friend. He or she might be advising you on the rights and wrongs and explaining you on how the mind works. Telling you ways of how to control the mind and go ahead with taking actions.

Well, your understanding might be partly true. The therapist sits with you and tells you about the functioning of the mind. Therapy at Aware is based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), the fastest growing therapeutic approach for psychological issues. ACT comes under the umbrella of the gold standard Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy (CBT). The sessions are completely non-judgmental and the therapist is empathetic towards your minutest troubles.

Through the therapy sessions with our counsellor, you will learn a lot of experiential exercises, tools and techniques which are scientifically proven to be effective on the human mind. You will be also be exposed to several useful mindfulness strategies to apply when in self-doubt. These are extremely different from just advising you on being positive.

I want to learn more about how therapy works for my Self-Esteem & Self-Confidence

You can find a glimpse of what you can expect from the therapy sessions:

Stage 1: Evaluation

The therapist interacts with you in detail to understand your troubles and worries. These sessions involve knowing your background, childhood, circumstances that led to your low self-confidence, relationships, etc.

Stage 2: Setting goals

Defining goals that matter to you the most in improving your self-esteem and self-confidence will be the next step by the therapist. This will help both you and the therapist to work on what is required and what is important to you. You both will sit together and chart out a plan on your goals to arrive at the desired results at the end of your therapy sessions

Stage 3: Distancing Thoughts

Unlike what we hear about thinking positive will make us better individuals, the therapy process teaches you how to distance yourself from the unhelpful thoughts generated by your mind while you want to take actions. You will understand that every thought that comes to your mind will not change things for you. What makes the difference is the actions that you take while reducing the impact of this negative thought. The therapist guides you with various tools for handling your thoughts.

Stage 4: Understanding the Self

Once you have practised the skills to distance unhelpful thoughts, you will be guided towards the concepts of self-awareness and self-acceptance. These can be achieved with mindfulness exercises where you begin to notice your thinking process, your feelings and actions. You will become more accepting of yourself. When you accept yourselves completely, your confidence and self-esteem begins to improve.

Stage 5: Implementation

While in the sessions, you would have got practice in front of the therapist how to apply the learnt techniques on your fear. You will start to imbibe the tools in your daily life, so when you appear at the tough situation you will handle yourself with much more ease and confidence.

Will the above methodology really help me?

This is just a brief of what you could really experience at the real therapy sessions. Once you truly involve in the sessions with our therapist is when you realize the effectiveness of the methodology of CBT and ACT. The advantage of CBT and ACT is that it offers plenty of experiential exercises, which you can choose according to what suits you.

What results can I find in myself after self-esteem therapy?

• You get better at handling your unhelpful thoughts
• You take actions in what matters to you the most
• You observe improvement in your communication skills
• You feel energetic to face situations that bothered you earlier
• You realise your self-esteem and self-confidence has been multiplied

Therapy seems to be an elaborate process, is it too time consuming?

Therapy involves an all-round approach towards treating your issues. It doesn’t need to be an elaborate process. You can discuss the time required with your therapist. Some sessions may take longer while some are quick to grasp and implement the tools taught by the therapist. Your therapist will be your support system till you feel better in handling your troubles.

What if I cannot attend sessions when I am away?

We live a life of busy bees. In this era, work and family calls for a lot of travelling. Your counsellor will be available to take distance sessions in your preferred medium like an online session or a telephonic session.

This way your therapy sessions are always consistent and does not give you a break in between. Maintaining a good consistency plays a very big role in providing fruitful results to your existing problems.
