What is self-esteem

Having low self-esteem means having a low opinion of yourself.  It affects people in different ways and to different degrees.  Most people experience at least some degree of self-doubt in specific situations. For example, this may happen at a job interview or when meeting a new group of people. However, low self-esteem may cause people to lack confidence in many situations, or to dislike themselves in a general way. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is particularly suited if you are suffering from stress, anxiety or low self-esteem.
