Women’s Self-Esteem Therapy Group

A professionally run therapy group for women who want to understand and improve the way they think and feel about themselves. Using the group process, interpersonal  relationships within the group will be utilized as a means for understanding and resolving personal self-esteem issues. The group offers an emotional experience where members feel heard and understood. The group can be a safe place to start to develop intimate  relationships, which help to facilitate changes in self-defeating behaviours and improve on interpersonal styles.

  • Depression
