The Power of Self Esteem

About this course

Self-esteem is our idea of our own basic worth, and is often rooted in our childhood when our sense of value was associated with the positive regards of others, or linked with our achievements.  As we move into adulthood, we may accomplish much yet feel dissatisfied because our self-esteem still depends on our next success, or failure. Life seems like a treadmill, lacking in real excitement or purpose.

The Power of Self-Esteem course shows you how to identify this deeply rooted system of beliefs, and develop a new kind of awareness of who and what you really are, so you can maintain your sense of self-worth at all times, regardless of what’s happening around you.

You will learn practical yet powerful tools to enhance your self-esteem. And, with that you will develop your ability to:

  • Develop and maintain your sense of self-worth regardless of your achievements and what others think of you

  • Distinguish true self-esteem from the endless cycle of reward and punishment to which it has become attached

  • Connect more deeply with what you really want for yourself and your life

  • Start to express yourself with a new kind of passion and power

  • Create results without driving yourself or generating unnecessary stress

  • Let go of the self-imposed demands and accusations

  • Be more resilient in the face of adversity or challenges

  • Identify when your self-esteem is low, and know how to reinvigorate it

  • Love and accept yourself, just as you are

  • Inspire others to esteem and value themselves too.

Testimonials from participants

"Very useful in identifying feelings and thoughts which may be false or irrational with relation to situational factors.  I found it useful learning to push aside those “what if” questions and pressures we ascribe to ourselves.  Also, I found it helpful in learning about myself as a person.  Would definitely recommend it!"

 

"The sessions reinforced ideas about not attaching oneself to fear or external pressures. Useful for reflection and a greater understanding of myself. Gave me practical strategies on how to address the underlying state of low self-esteem."

 

"I learned that everyone has inner worries.  The sessions were thought-provoking and made me think about why I feel certain ways in situations.  I would recommend it to help others to recognise that we all have internal criticisms and to learn ways of protecting and revealing the truth of the person we are inside those."
