Self Esteem

Self Esteem refers to the way we view ourselves. If we have a high regard for ourselves and believe we are capable and competent, if we regularly acknowledge and process our achievements and successes we will develop high self esteem. Equally, if we focus, in a negative or critical way, our attention on mistakes and errors we have made or allow others’ opinion of us to determine our self view we will create low self esteem. The Thrive Programme shows us how to manage the way we view ourselves through greater perspective of events and by taking a more balanced and realistic view.


Anxiety generally describes a fearful state of apprehension, worry and doubt. Our perception of events and situations is filtered through our belief systems; how much control we believe we have in a situation and our beliefs about our ability to cope will have a direct impact on the degree of anxiety we feel in a given situation.


A phobia is an irrational or disproportionate reaction to a feared situation, object or event. Sufferers usually recognise that their reaction is extreme and out of proportion to the danger presented. Despite this intellectual awareness they feel powerless to change their response. Feeling powerless and out of control is the single biggest factor in maintaining the phobia.


Depression is a very common problem, with around one in five people suffering from some form of it at some point in their lives. There are many potential symptoms of depression, which can include: feeling sad and tearful, lack of energy, difficulty concentrating and making decisions, changes in appetite, insomnia or disturbed sleep patterns, reduced sex drive.
