You may feel you are unable to achieve the things you want to do. You may compare yourself to others and feel less important, less clever, not as good as them. You may have negative views on your looks, your body. Your internal dialogue may tell you negative things about yourself – you’re not worthy, you look bad, you’re too fat, too thin, stupid, boring etc. etc. Feelings like this often come from external sources – things you’ve been told or comments that have been made by significant people in your past. In counselling, through exploration of your past and present, it is possible to change the way you feel about yourself and find a more confident you.
