Lack of Confidence and Low Self-Esteem

Self-esteem is a phrase used frequently in our society and basically means having a poor opinion of yourself or you’re ability to do things. You cannot however, go out and buy self esteem or confidence. In fact, when you have self esteem or confidence you rarely notice because you are busy doing things and thinking outwards rather than inwards and therefore you are less emotional and more effective resulting in more success and increase in confidence and self esteem. Good psychotherapy should help people get their emotional needs met so that they no longer have to think about whether they have low self esteem or lack confidence.
