Lack of confidence and shyness can lead you to be avoidant and prevents you from fulfilling your potential. Anxiety about yourself can result in underperformance and this in turn reinforces your negative beliefs about yourself.
A combination of CBT and Mindfulness training will help you to address and adjust unhelpful patterns of thinking and fear of judgement. You will learn techniques to help you to cope with challenging situations so as to take a more active rather than passive approach to difficulties, so building confidence and belief in your abilities.
Even in the most severe cases, depression is highly treatable. According to research CBT is the most effective treatment for depression. Used together with Mindfulness, CBT addresses problematic thought patterns with the aim of disengaging attention from repetitive negative thoughts that often trigger low mood.
Treatment helps you to understand cause and to develop strategies for improving mood.
