feel happier about yourself

Talking to an experienced therapist you’ll learn how to

  • find who you want to be
  • express yourself honestly
  • value yourself

Sometimes it’s hard to find out who you are and what you want to be. It’s common for young people to feel they need to live up to someone else’s expectations, feel judged by others, feel different or lack self-confidence. The likelihood is that you’ll feel happier if you learn to express what you think and feel and what you want, and have an influence on what affects you.

If you’re not sure what you want, it’s good to talk through possibilities and find out how to have an effective voice. You can learn how to say what’s important to you in ways that other people will take seriously. When you believe you have an impact on decisions, you can start to be the real you and push away ideas that you need to please others or worry about what others think.
