For many women, the pressure to be everything to everyone is real. And even in the face of achievement, many women often feel overlooked even in spite of their accomplishments. As a result, 1 out of every 4 women is suffering from mental health issues such as anxiety and depression.
But you don’t need to suffer alone. With the right tenacity, the right perspective, and the right counseling, anxiety can become a climbable hill!
Read on to explore counseling solutions to help build positive self esteem.
Building Self Esteem
As the saying goes, beauty comes from within. This is doubly true for one’s emotional beauty.
When working with a behavioral health counselor, patients can expect to focus more on their inner emotional space. Often, counselors will employ cognitive restructuring techniques to help reframe a patient’s negative thoughts. The core of the work here is to identify thoughts that might be fueling low self-esteem.
Work with a women’s mental health counseling professional to identify and reduce harmful tendencies. The first step is to silence the negative self-talk and inner criticism that many women may experience.
Building Positive Relationships
Oftentimes, our happiness and confidence in our relationships are directly tied to our emotional well-being. As RuPaul says: “If you can’t love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?”
Developing positive platonic and romantic relationships is all about identifying the value that you bring to that relationship. Patients working with a counselor to build a sense of self worth can expect to identify relationship patterns, employ roleplay techniques for better communication, and more.
They can also expect to work with their therapist to identify any words or actions in the context of their relationships that might be hindering their emotional growth. Identifying and challenging toxic relationships is key to building better self-worth, as it reduces outside suggestions to the contrary.
