Children and youth with low self-esteem can be very insecure about their personal performances. For example they compare themselves with their peers who, in their opinion, are more intelligent, are better looking or have possessions which are more beautiful. This can result in the idea of “ never being good enough” and “not being worth anything”. The child might get the feeling that he or she doesn’t belong to a group or might get the feeling of being invisible. Children and adolescence with low self-esteem should learn to see themselves in a different way.
With methods from i.e. cognitive behavioural therapy we try to alter disturbing thoughts into more “helping” thoughts.
Insecurity can cause many worrying thoughts. They keep thinking about (small) things that, in their opinion, went wrong. They keep thinking about things that could happen or can’t stop thinking about what other people may think about them. Mostly, these thought are irrational and interfere with their daily life functioning, because they are incapable of stopping them.
In the sessions, we aim to discover the origin of these irrational thoughts to be able to change them in more comfortable and more realistic thoughts.
