This programme is for people who struggle with low self-esteem. It is directed towards people who are interested and motivated to find out how Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) can help them understand and improve their self-esteem through implementation of the key concepts and techniques of CBT.
Low self-esteem can be a very debilitating phenomenon often leading to, or exacerbating, anxiety and/or depression. CBT can help the individual address their low self-esteem and develop a more positive attitude towards oneself, whereby the individual acts in an accepting, respectful and trusting manner towards oneself.
Admission to this programme is through a referral from your consultant or multidisciplinary team. Following the referral you will be contacted by a member of the Day Service Department and attend for an initial assessment.
Following the initial assessment you will be attending the introduction to CBT programme for 4 sessions. This, in part, acts as further assessment for the Healthy Self-esteem Programme. After completion of the Introduction to CBT course and in consultation with the CBT group facilitator, a collaborative decision is made in relation to commencing the ‘Building Healthy Self-esteem Programme’.
This is a day patient programme based at St Patrick's, Lucan.
