Self Esteem Therapy in NYC

New York attracts high achievers who have a high drive to compete and succeed, but people who look successful on the outside are often struggling on the inside. In a career-focused culture where there’s always someone who seems to be out-achieving you, feelings of inadequacy and unworthiness can make daily life miserable — but it doesn’t have to be that way. Surviving, let alone thriving, in a competitive city can be a major challenge when you’re lacking in self-esteem. Building self-esteem can feel impossible when you’ve learned to associate your self-worth with your accomplishments and how they stack up against those around you. When negative self-talk or feeling unworthy is dominating your life, seek out an experienced NYC therapist who can help. Whether your self-esteem issues are manifesting in people-pleasing, a lack of boundaries, depression, anxiety, or body image issues, Uncover Mental Health Counseling can help you on improving self-esteem with our self esteem therapy in NYC.

Meanwhile those who do not prioritize building up their sense of self worth often face crippling feelings of doubt about themselves or harbor negative opinions about their own capabilities that hamper progress.Our NYC self-esteem therapists offer dedicated support to explore underlying factors and cultivate a positive sense of self.

Self-Esteem Therapy NYC: Frequently Asked Questions

What is self-esteem?

Self-esteem is one’s perception of their own self-worth. It’s how you feel and think about your abilities, qualities, and value as a person. Having healthy self-esteem manifests as a positive self-image, a sense of intrinsic worth, and ultimately, self-acceptance.

How has social media influenced my self-esteem?

It is easy to have a warped and overly negative sense of self-worth, especially in the age of social media where we see 100% of our lives, but only highlight reels of others’.

How can self-esteem therapy help me?

Through therapy, you can learn to challenge your negative beliefs, enhance self-compassion, address underlying emotional issues, and develop the tools needed to build confidence and assertiveness. Ultimately, self-esteem therapy can help you gain a deep understanding of the factors contributing to your low self-esteem and develop strategies to improve it.

Can self esteem therapy benefit both men and women?

Absolutely! Gender identity has no correlation with self-esteem issues. At Uncover Mental Health Counseling, our therapists are trained to provide a safe and inclusive space for you in building self-esteem, regardless of your gender.

How does being a high achiever take a toll on your self-worth?

It's not uncommon for high achievers to confront insecurities regarding their own value despite their accomplishments. In some instances, these inner doubts can actually propel them towards greater achievement. If accomplishing each successive objective leaves you feeling empty and yearning for more there's a good chance that you've conflated personal worth with professional triumphs alone and need to focus on establishing stronger self-esteem habits moving forward. No matter how much success you may have achieved, being a high achiever in New York can take a toll on your self-worth:

  • For high achievers, being surrounded by people who are more successful than you can make it feel like you’ll never have, do, or be enough.
  • Living in one of the world’s most competitive cities can trigger feelings of unworthiness, leading to self-neglect and self-sacrifice.
  • The fast-paced New York lifestyle can make building strong relationships a challenge, increasing feelings of interpersonal rejection.
