Building Self Esteem

Building Self-Esteem

Why is it important to build self-esteem? Self-esteem is a critical factor of our happiness and wellbeing. With low self-esteem, we can compare ourselves to others, engage in negative self-talk, and lack self-worth or self-respect. Embrace who you are by understanding your past, and making intentional choices to raise your self-esteem. 

In this full-day workshop, you will learn about the characteristics of self-esteem, self-defeating behaviours, and setting healthy boundaries. This could be the first step you need in becoming seen and respected as the strong individual you are inside. 

Who Can Attend?

Anyone aged 18 or over who has a desire to build their self-esteem or confidence

What you will learn?

You will build skills to enhance your self-esteem by understanding:

  • Self-esteem and its characteristics, and ways to develop high self-esteem and self-confidence
  • The signs and causes of low self-esteem
  • Self-defeating behaviours and how to combat them
  • How our past experiences impact our brain and who we are
  • Ways to set healthy boundaries and practice self-care

By the end of the course, you will feel more comfortable:

  • Identifying personal traits to address specific issues, such as positive self-esteem, healthy boundaries, self-confidence, stress management, and emotional triggers
  • Engaging in positive self-talk and appreciating your positive qualities
