Everyone has a presenting self, which can be useful for professional situations, however there can be real inner conflict if how we feel on the inside is far away from what we show to the outside world. This prevents us from behaving and meeting our own needs in an authentic way. Negative and critical self-talk can crush self-esteem. Counselling can enable you to gain a greater understanding of yourself and help you to live with an increased sense of well-being, purpose and ability to develop healthier relationships.
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
