Self Esteem Q&A

Build authentic confidence that doesn’t depend on your accomplishments.


New York attracts high achievers who have a high drive to compete and succeed, but people who look successful on the outside
are often struggling on the inside. In a career-focused culture where there’s always someone who seems to be out-achieving
you, feelings of inadequacy and unworthiness can make daily life miserable — but it doesn’t have to be that way.


Surviving — let alone thriving — in a competitive, high-stress city can be a major challenge when you’re lacking in self-esteem,
and building confidence that you can rely on can feel impossible when you’ve learned to associate your self-worth with your
accomplishments. When negative self-talk or feeling unworthy is dominating your internal experience, it’s time to seek out an
experienced NYC therapist who can help.


Whether your self-esteem issues are manifesting in people-pleasing, a lack of boundaries, depression, anxiety, or body image
issues, Uncover Mental Health Counseling is here to help.


Did You Know That…?


An unyielding drive to achieve is often partially rooted in a lack of self-esteem? Highly successful people might be the last ones
you’d expect to suffer from low self-worth, but often that’s one of the underlying factors that motivates them to work harder than others. If you find yourself constantly thinking that you’ll finally be satisfied when you meet your next goal, but find yourself feeling empty when the time actually comes, you’re likely equating your worthiness with your accomplishments.
No matter how much success you may have achieved, being a high achiever in New York can take a toll on your self-worth:


● For high achievers, being surrounded by people who are more successful than you can make it feel like you’ll never
have, do, or be enough
● Living in one of the world’s most competitive cities can trigger feelings of unworthiness, leading to self-neglect and
self-sacrifice
● The fast-paced New York lifestyle can make it difficult to make deep connections with others, triggering feelings of being
unlikable or not good enough


High achievers who are struggling with their self-esteem are often reluctant to admit their feelings of inadequacy, but building
authentic self-esteem will allow you to break out of the hustle cycle and stop chasing that sense of self-satisfaction that never
comes. At Uncover Counseling, the best therapists in NYC can help you learn to love you for you, rather than your
accomplishments.


How Can We Help?


People struggling with self-esteem often avoid seeking therapy because they don’t feel worthy of feeling good about themselves.
But you’re more than your next accomplishment, and you deserve happiness that doesn’t hinge on your achievements.


At Uncover Mental Health Counseling, our therapists utilize cognitive behavioral therapy, rational emotive behavioral therapy,
dialectical behavioral therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy to help you navigate four key milestones on the journey to building healthy self-esteem:


13. COVER YOUR PAST: Self-esteem issues typically begin in childhood, so we begin with a deep dive into your past to
understand the root of what you’re currently experiencing.
14. UNCOVER YOUR PATTERNS: We’ll dig deep in order to understand how your self-esteem issues are manifesting in
your day-to-day life and what other behaviors they may be driving.
15. DISCOVER YOUR POTENTIAL: Together we’ll build your cognitive restructuring skills, emotion regulation skills, and
mindfulness skills to help you overcome negative self-talk and feelings of inadequacy.
16. RECOVER YOUR POWER: By the end of the treatment, you’ll have built authentic self-esteem and will no longer feel
the need to constantly chase the next accomplishment in order to feel worthy.
