Building Self Esteem

Many people will have low confidence and difficulty believing in themselves at some point in their lives, depending on what they maybe going through at that time. When it becomes a long-term difficulty, it can have a harmful effect on someone’s mental health and their lives in general.

This one day course aims to help those who may find it difficult to build their self-belief and feelings of self-worth, by giving them a variety of practical ways that they can start to challenge the negative thoughts they may have about themselves. There is no expectation that people share their reasons for having low confidence or self-esteem, but it will be an opportunity to learn about the various ways someone’s self-esteem can be affected.

By the end of the course, you will:

  • Understand what the term ‘self-esteem’ includes
  • Recognise the various ways in which someone’s self-esteem can be affected, both negatively and positively
  • Be given information on the ways you can start challenging negative thoughts towards yourself
  • Be equipped with various ‘tools’ for you to use to help build your self-esteem at times of difficulty
  • Gain practice in using these tools and then reviewing how beneficial they have been for you
  • Be given information on where you may be able to get ongoing support with building your self-esteem from.
