Working with thousands of individuals, couples and families over 30 years, a very common issue presented is lack of self esteem.
Do people say you are successful/talented/good looking – yet you judge yourself negatively; (Impostor Syndrome) or tolerate put-down comments, behavior, relationships because you don’t know what else to do? Do you stand up for others but not yourself? Imagine liking who you really are, knowing what you want and having the motivation to go after it. Being able to say ‘No’ when you want to, take care of your needs and not just others.
