Combat Negative Images with Positive Esteem Counseling
Anyone with a negative view of themselves can benefit from improved self-esteem counseling at Calabasas Behavioral Health.
Many people do not realize they have low self-esteem. It can be deeply ingrained, beginning at an early age. Constant criticism or abuse from parents or family members can cripple a child’s self-confidence. Physical problems or learning disabilities may also foster a poor self-image.
Positive self-esteem counseling helps overcome the negative impressions that often intensify as a person ages, suffers personal and career setbacks, or simply receives little encouragement from others. Lingering issues related to low self-esteem can result in a variety of conditions, including:
- Constant fatigue, a lack of motivation, feelings of hopelessness, overeating, and a lack of focus are symptoms of depression.
- Anxiety disorders, including social phobias. The fear that keeps a neighbor or family member from leaving the house may be rooted in low self-esteem.
- Alcohol and drug abuse.
- The inability to sustain healthy relationships with friends and family members. Intimate relationships may be unconsciously sabotaged in various ways.
- Although not considered a diagnosable condition, codependency also may develop from a deep-seated lack of self-esteem. Sensitivity to criticism, constantly referring to oneself negatively, and the obsessive need to care for or rescue others are signs of codependency.

The Use of Psychotherapy in Esteem Counseling
At Calabasas Behavioral Health, psychotherapy identifies the causes of poor self-esteem, which can widely vary from individual to individual.
Once reasons for a low self-image are determined, psychotherapy turns to developing goal-oriented behaviors to restore a patient’s confidence. Creating an enduring, positive sense of self can result in enormous changes in the life of an individual and the lives of others around that individual.
