Welcome to the "Cultivating Self-love and Self-worth" session, where we will explore the essential role of fostering a positive self-image and nurturing self-worth as a foundation for healthy interactions. This session will be guided by Katlego, an intern clinical psychologist passionate about adolescent and adult psychotherapy, aiming to pioneer in the field of family and marital psychotherapy.
Self-love and self-worth start with acknowledging and appreciating who we are. This includes our strengths, values, and unique qualities. Through self-reflection exercises, we can better understand our self-image and work on fostering a positive and confident sense of self.
Self-worth involves recognizing our intrinsic value and understanding that we are deserving of love, respect, and happiness. During the session, we will delve into techniques for building self-esteem and fostering a sense of worthiness.
Practicing self-compassion involves treating ourselves with kindness, understanding, and empathy, especially during challenging times. This session will provide practical exercises to develop self-compassion and overcome self-criticism.
Self-love encompasses caring for our physical, emotional, and mental well-being. Attendees will learn about personalized self-care practices to nurture a sense of love and respect for themselves.
