When opening up a dictionary of psychology there are many terms which are interchangeable with the term low self esteem. A poor self image in the literature has the simple meaning that the picture in a person’s mind’s eye of how they view their physical attributes (body self image) their success in mastering their environment (success, competence, intelligence) and their overall self worth is distorted by the picture they hold of themselves.
When the opinions we have about ourselves and our overall evaluation of self worth is negative this correlates highly with low self esteem.
Psychological counselling and CBT can help a person to overcome their low self esteem and build a brighter more fulfilling future for themselves.
