Everyone feels insecure now and again. Our self-esteem can vary from one day to the next. One day you may feel proud of yourself for bringing in a new client or passing an exam, but the next day you might feel disappointed in yourself for letting a friend down. Having a predominantly positive image of ourselves is essential for our well-being; it helps us feel self-confident and be the best version of ourselves.

Understanding Self-Confidence


Self-confidence is more than just believing in yourself; it’s the unwavering trust in your abilities and judgement. It’s the inner strength that propels you to face life’s challenges head-on, knowing that you are capable of handling them. Self-confidence is like a sturdy bridge that connects your aspirations with your achievements, paving the way for a happier, more fulfilling life.


Self-Confidence Challenges You May Face

People come to us with questions such as:

“I find it hard to set boundaries”
“I often feel that I’m not good enough”
“I feel that others can always do things better than I can”


The Link between Self-Confidence and Mental Well-Being

The relationship between self-confidence and mental well-being is undeniable. When you have healthy self-confidence, you typically experience reduced stress, anxiety, and depression. You’re more resilient to setbacks, allowing you to bounce back from life’s curveballs. Self-confident individuals also tend to maintain better relationships and pursue their goals with a sense of purpose, which greatly contributes to their overall happiness and life satisfaction.
