Low self-esteem

Overview

A person with low self-esteem has a low regard for themselves, which can manifest itself in traits such as indecision, hypersensitivity to criticism, and guilt. Whilst low self-esteem does not make up a condition alone, in combination with other symptoms it can point to conditions including (but not limited to) anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder and personality disorders.

If you have any concerns, please make an appointment to see your GP.
