Online Therapy for Self-Esteem & Confidence

Online Therapy for Self-Esteem in Ontario by Registered Psychotherapists | Psychotherapy Collective

Self-confidence can be thought of as how we assess our ability to navigate adversity and challenges. Similarly, self-esteem is how we assess our own value or worth, which often creates a lens for how we perceive ourselves and the world around us. Both self-confidence and self-esteem can be amplified or weakened by a variety of factors including our temperament, relational dynamics, past experiences, and cultural narratives.

When we lack self-confidence, we often become self-critical and fear being wrong or asking for support, which can lead to avoiding situations associated with uncertainty or risk. Low self-esteem may be experienced as a feeling of shame or sense of lacking, a consistent focus on pleasing others, and prioritizing other’s needs at our own expense.

Therapy can be an empowering process to increase your self-confidence and self-esteem. It is often helpful to explore personal experiences where you have demonstrated self-confidence and recognize how you have overcome adversity in the past. You can also access your inherent strength and resiliency by challenging critical thoughts through compassion and acceptance, increasing your tolerance for uncertainty, and mastering a new skill.

Exploring self-esteem is a path of self-discovery aiming to understand what you attribute to your personal sense of worth. Exploring a variety of areas in therapy can allow you to understand the emotions and experiences impacting your self-belief and establish the boundaries you require to be confident and comfortable being you.

At the core of my work with clients we seek to explore our unique responses to three fundamental questions; What direction do I want/need to shift my life towards? What actions can I take to make this a reality? What is getting in the way of achieving this? I believe you know what is truly best for you and my role is to support you through this therapeutic exploration rather than lead it. I work with individuals, couples, and youth 16+.
