  1. Identify Negative Thoughts: People with low self esteem often have a set of negative beliefs about themselves. These might include thoughts like "i'm not good enough" or "i'm a failure."

  2. Challenge Negative Thoughts: Once these thoughts are identified, they can be challenged. For example, if a person believes they're a failure, they might be asked to provide evidence of this. Often, they'll find evidence to the contrary. Often they'll be able to debunk a belief that isn't true.

  3. Replace Negative Thoughts with Positive Ones: After challenging negative beliefs, they can be replaced with more positive, realistic thoughts. For example, instead of thinking "i'm a failure," a person might start thinking "I have had successes and failures like everyone else. I can learn from my failures." The aim is always to take forward positive learnings. There is always a different way of looking at the same situation, a therapist or coach will be able to help you to reframe negative stuck thinking.

  4. Learn New Behaviours: Therapy for low self esteem can help individuals learn new behaviours to improve their self esteem. This might include practicing self-compassion, setting and achieving realistic goals, or improving self care habits.

It is important to remember that everyone's experience with self esteem is different, and therapy for low self esteem can often help individuals to understand the root of their low self esteem and develop strategies to improve it.
