Low self-esteem is a very common problem. It can cause great unhappiness and restrict people’s lives. This practical booklet draws on an established treatment, cognitive behaviour therapy.
It offers a framework for understanding how low self-esteem develops and the unhelpful thinking patterns that keep it going, and offers ideas on how to tackle the problem and how to learn to accept yourself and treat yourself with kindness.
Authors: Melanie Fennell is a Consultant Clinical Psychologist with the Oxford Cognitive Therapy Centre. She has a long-standing special interest in self- esteem, and has written widely about it, both for clinicians and for the general public. Helen Jenkins is a Clinical Psychologist with Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust.
Menstrual Matters highly recommends this booklet because low self-esteem is very common in people with menstrual cycle-related health issues. Improving self-esteem can also reduce the severity of symptoms (especially emotional ones) and improve our relationship with our bodies (and therefore, health and well-being). This booklet is particularly effective, and affordable!
