Treatment for low self-esteem with Psykologvirke - mapping of specific mechanisms
The paths to low self-esteem are numerous and complex. A lot of people cannot remember anything else, while for others it has continued to develop throughout their lives - often in periods of transition.
When you seek psychological help for low self-esteem with us, we begin by mapping the specific mechanisms that originally created, and now maintain, your difficulties with self-esteem.
In this way we can learn more about what is needed to give you the best treatment for low self-esteem and structure a therapy program to best suit your specific needs.
Often, one knows a little bit about why things have become like this - but we also usually find that various mechanisms are completely or partially unconscious. Often, simply becoming aware is helpful in itself.
Aspects of your self-image can begin to change in the course of only a few hours. Other aspects may require longer time and more in-depth exploration
Therapy for poor self-image with Psykologvirke - various methods
There are a number of recommended methods for treatment of low self-esteem. For example, intensive short-term depth therapy (ISTDP), schema therapy or psychodynamic therapy.
There is no one method that is right for everyone, all the time. The determining factor for a successful treatment for low self-esteem is that we collaborate in a way that is meaningful for you, as related to your specific circumstances.
Our professional assessments will form a starting point, and then together we will evaluate the ongoing progress as well as any need for potential adjustments.
Treatment for poor self-esteem with Psykologvirke -safety and challenge
We place great value on creating a foundation of trust and safety and of being open and forthright about what we are thinking and doing at any given moment.
Within such a framework, you can best withstand and challenge the anxiety that is often connected with stepping out from the conscious and into the subconscious patterns that may lay at the root of the formation and maintenance of low self-esteem.
If you cannot afford a private psychologist and do not have health insurance that covers your treatment, we have created a guide over recommended psychologists in Oslo. In the guide you can see the various alternatives available.
Psychological treatment for low self-esteem - is it useful?
Treatment for low self-esteem is often not a “quick-fix”. But change is always possible. It has little to do with the number of hours spent - rather the deciding factor is how effectively and constructively we manage to work together towards your goal.
Improvement is possible in just a few sessions. Most of all we hope to contribute to your efforts to overcome repressive and life-limiting inner forces.
This may take longer but can be worth working towards. Life can be challenging enough without having to struggle with low self-esteem in addition.
Everyone deserves freedom, joy, love and good health. We are a dedicated team who bring the best of psychological expertise in our work with our clients.
