About us

At Positive South we have a passion for helping people to learn to love themselves and reach their own full potential.

If you can understand your own core beliefs and work on changing them, you can then focus on building your self worth and begin to have a better relationship with yourself and others. We think it is important to build your self esteem and this cannot be underestimated. It affects your behaviour and thoughts. It changes how you feel about and value yourself.

Self esteem affects your confidence, without confidence in what you can do and in who you are, you have less chance of happiness and success. Self esteem will also help you at work. Having better confidence and positive attitude will enable you to look and feel your best. Why waste money on looking your best on the outside if you do not feel your best on the inside?

  • Self esteem can be the difference between success and failure
  • Esteem can affect your thinking, causing your outlook to be positive or negative
  • Esteem affects your confidence
  • It affects your self image
  • If you do not value yourself how will you be able to value others.
  • Self esteem enables you to have the right attitude to succeed at work
  • It affects your happiness

Working one to one with the same counsellor, we offer a six-week individual counselling course that involves building your self-esteem, by using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, to identify and analyse your own personal beliefs and bring them to your conscious, enabling you to work on and challenge them.

The first half of the session will focus on building your self-esteem, whilst the second half will be for you to talk about any issues you wish to bring to the session. You will be assigned a counsellor at the beginning of the course who will work with you throughout the six weeks. If you feel you wish to continue with 1:1 counselling at the end of the six-week course, this can be arranged with your counsellor.
