Confidence and Self-Esteem Group

31 Jan 2007

A five-week group for staff beginning 7 February 2007

A five week group for staff of The University of Manchester starting Wednesday 7 February 2007, 5pm-6.30pm, in the Well-Being Room, Dover Street Building, Dover Street.

Many of us feel that we could improve our levels of confidence and self-esteem in particular aspects of our lives. Habitual patterns, such as being overly self-critical or demanding of ourselves (and possibly of others), can leave us feeling that what we or others do is never good enough. We can feel anxious about what others think of us, and adopt coping strategies such as avoiding situations we find difficult that may feel helpful temporarily but ultimately limit our effectiveness.

This group offers a confidential, safe space to explore these and other aspects of issues around low confidence and self-esteem.

The group will help you to:

  • Identify unhelpful patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving that underlie or contribute to issues around low confidence and self-esteem.
  • Develop more constructive ways of relating to yourself and others that improve confidence and self-esteem.

The group will take the form of discussion, education, information and experiential work. (This group requires a commitment to all sessions).

If you are interested in joining or would like more information, please book a brief, confidential appointment with the group facilitator by telephoning:
