FREEDOM TO BE SELF-ESTEEM
Self-esteem is the degree to which we feel confident, consider ourselves valuable and respect ourselves. Low self-esteem, poor self-image and negative self-confidence are serious issues facing today’s adolescent females. Factors that can lead to low self-esteem include; the media, obesity, depression, poor academic achievement and disruptive family environment, such as divorce or remarriage. These poor images of self can lead to behavioral and emotional complications, such as; academic issues, aggression, drug/alcohol abuse, anxiety/depression, self-harming behaviors or unwanted pregnancy.

The healing that takes place in the group counseling process will support participants to develop self-compassion so that they can develop more realistic and achievable goals for themselves and treat themselves with kindness.
