Low Self Confidence
Low self confidence is a lack of self-belief or a lack of belief in the ability to solve life’s problems.
When a person believes in themselves and their abilities to succeed in life we describe them as “being full of Self Confidence”.
People with high self confidence tend to have certain characteristics associated with them such as the ability to be:
- Highly Sociable
- Popular with others
- Un-ruffled by problems
- Un-phased by illnesses
Many people will experience low self confidence at some point in our lives and this is a perfectly normal.
However, there are some people whose entire lives seem to be experienced with these feelings of low self confidence, often expressed as feeling not good enough.
People with low self confidence or low self esteem will almost certainly also suffer from what is called Social Anxiety which is the degree to which a person feels judged by others
In fact, there is a recognised relationahip between low self confidence and high Social Anxiety.
The more social anxiety you suffer, the lower your self confidence.
What causes low self confidence?
There are many things that can result in low self confidence and they generally fall into two main categories:
- Some sort of negative or emotional experience that has taken place, normally where you failed to live up to some “standard” and felt, or were made to feel, embarrassed or “small” as a consequence. It is particularly important to note that this “standard” which was not achieved may be real, or simply imagined.
- The slow development, over time, of negative or unhelpful thinking patterns that start to impact more widely on the way you feel about yourself.
These unhelpful thinking styles or limiting beliefs, can self-reinforce and lead into a downward spiral of low self confidence that gets worse over time.
Therapy & Counselling for Low Self Confidence
We offer a number of different types of therapy and counselling for Low Self Confidence and related problems.
Choosing the most suitable therapy depends on a number of different considerations including factors such as:
- How long you have had the problem.
- Your personal preferences.
- How your problem is affecting you today.
You can read more about the different types of therapy for confidence issues on the following links:
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Low Self Confidence
- Counselling for Low Self Confidence

Although all therapies use slightly different approaches, the one thing they all have in common is the relationship that is formed between the client and therapist.
Furthermore, research also suggests that therapy relationship may be the most important factor in achieving a good therapy outcome.
