What is ‘Build your self-esteem’ about?

Many psychological and somatic complaints are related to low self-esteem and a negative self-image. With this short self-help module, people can take the first steps that can contribute towards developing a more realistic self-image. Firstly, the client reads psycho-education on the causes and perpetuating factors of a negative self-image. They examine their own self-image and consider an imaginary friend's perspective on it. Then, the client reads tips to help develop a more positive focus and practises with positive visualisation. Finally, they reflect on what they have learnt throughout the short self-help module.

The exercises can enable clients to identify their thoughts, acknowledge the facts and form alternative perceptions to act upon. This can help to promote more helpful behaviour that can lead clients to feel more positive and confident.

For whom is this module suitable?

This module is suitable for all who wish to start working on their self-esteem at their own pace and without guidance.

Which diary is part of ‘Build your self-esteem’?

The ‘positive diary’ is automatically activated during the self-help module. In this diary, one can write about moments that made them feel proud, happy or satisfied. By describing it all in detail, a more positive focus can be developed.

What is the module based on?

The content of the module has been put together during an extensive development process and is based on relevant literature as well as the knowledge and experience of practitioners and patients.
