Therapy For Low Self-esteem By Dr. Joseph Lancaster
Therapy for self-esteem and changing your beliefs and behavior about how you think about yourself are the only ways to raise your self-esteem. If you have been struggling with self-esteem issues from early childhood until now, self-esteem therapy becomes necessary; otherwise, it could lead to serious mental health issues and even self-harm. I treat my patients with self-esteem issues with “person-centered” therapy. I help individuals recognize the cause and monitor negative beliefs, doubt, and anxiety to alleviating painful feelings.
