What is low self-esteem?
Self-esteem is the ability to value and love yourself, and so low self-esteem is the opposite. This “valuing” of oneself is not limited to our beliefs or opinions — it can also include our appearance, our rights and our needs.
How is low self-esteem treated?
At Psymplicity, we adopt a holistic approach that puts your wellbeing first. We practise cognitive behavioural therapy for self-esteem among various other treatments, depending on the patient’s situation. We’ll develop a tailored plan that takes your circumstances, medical history and any underlying conditions into account.
What are the symptoms of low self-esteem?
Most people who suffer from low self-esteem have a generally negative outlook on life. Other symptoms may include feeling unloved, being unable to trust others or having a perfectionist attitude. It’s also common for low self-esteem to co-exist with feelings of guilt, anxiety and depression.

What is low self-esteem?
Having low self-esteem means struggling to see yourself as valuable or deserving of love. It often coincides with other mental health problems such as depression, anxiety and eating disorders, and can present itself in both young people and adults. People who suffer low self-esteem often have negative thoughts, find it difficult to interact with or relate to others, and can be highly dependent on others and afraid to make their own decisions.
There is no singular cause of low self-esteem, but a difficult and traumatic childhood or problems in one’s adult life can be contributing factors. For example, a child dealing with bullies at school may begin to feel anxious around others, worthless or cut off from social groups. Similarly, a child with undiagnosed learning difficulties or who looks different to their peers may feel they do not “fit in” with others around them, which can have long-lasting repercussions and lead them to feel they do not fit in anywhere.
In adults, low self-esteem can develop as a result of other conditions or circumstances, including domestic violence. In cases of domestic violence, an individual suffering emotional abuse may be constantly torn down and made to feel worthless as well as dependent on their abuser. As such, feelings of guilt, anger, fear and anxiety often surround those with low self-esteem, and it can create a barrier that is difficult to break through.

As such, feelings of guilt, anger, fear and anxiety often surround those with low self-esteem, and it can create a barrier that is difficult to break through.
It is common for those with low self-esteem to let these emotions spiral out of control, which can sometimes develop into dangerous mental health conditions such as depression and self-harm. It is important for us to be able to recognise even the mildest symptom of low self-esteem to ensure patients are given the right treatment that sets them on a path to recovery as soon as possible.
What are the symptoms of low self-esteem?
There are various symptoms of low self-esteem, but they can be difficult to notice, especially as some individuals may disguise their emotions. If you have low self-esteem, you may have become so used to feeling this way that you do not even know that you might benefit from support.
Of course, this is not an exhaustive list of all the symptoms of low self-esteem. The condition can present itself in a number of ways depending on the person and their situation and history. The important thing to remember is that seeking help is never something to be ashamed of — it is the first step as you work towards valuing yourself as others do.

The Psymplicity approach to treating low self-esteem
At Psymplicity, we adopt an integrated approach to low self-esteem treatment. In some cases, your tailored treatment plan may involve advanced treatments such as psychiatric therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).
Low self-esteem treatment shouldn’t be yet another distraction or cause of stress, which is why we aim to treat every patient in a way that works with your life, not disrupts it further. Our expert team of psychiatrists will study every aspect of your case to formulate a suitable treatment plan.
Key to this is understanding the impact the condition has on your life while considering your medical history and any underlying mental and physical health issues, which eliminates these as potential causes of symptoms and allows us to deliver an accurate diagnosis and the best course of treatment.
Your low self-esteem treatment plan
Following our in-depth assessment and subsequent self-esteem diagnosis, you’ll benefit from a personalised and balanced treatment approach that prioritises helping you understand and manage your symptoms while reducing the impact of the condition on your life.
To ensure a perfectly tailored treatment plan, we begin with a professional self-esteem diagnosis and produce a personalised assessment report.
Our experts will evaluate your needs and create a bespoke treatment plan that suits you. We have a deep-rooted understanding of the specific benefits of each method of therapy, which we’ll talk you through during your appointment.
Patients suffering from low self-esteem need continued care and support, which is why we recommend follow-up appointments to review progress, discuss any concerns and adapt treatment as we walk with you on your path to recovery.
