Talk: The problem with self-esteem & how self-compassion can help
In this 2.5 hour interactive talk + facilitated discussion, we explore the pressure that women feel to have high self-esteem and why it’s not working for us. We look at an alternative 3 step evidence-based approach to help you move on from the impacts of low self-esteem and live with more wholeheartedness.
We will visit:
the problems with striving for high self-esteem
the art and science of self-compassion and why it’s a better way to go
how to work out what’s most important to you
how to deal with setbacks
