Self Acceptance Therapy
Self-acceptance work is highly effective for people suffering with low self-worth. One major foundation of self-acceptance work is the belief that past experiences and interpretations about the self and others tend to create negative self-images that may lead to critical and/or destructive self-evaluations. Old traumas, adverse experiences and troublesome memories can all have an impact on an individual’s present thoughts, feelings, and behaviours, and developing techniques to heal from these help individuals come to experience relief from lasting pain and develop new healthy beliefs. These new beliefs, which may reflect a deep level of acceptance and compassion are intended to help individuals become better able to disconnect themselves when memories of past experiences and their effects serve to distort interpretations of the present.
