Seeing Me...Eight weeks to changing the way you see, think, and feel about YOU!

Unhealthy self-esteem impacts people of all ages, cultures, occupations and economic classes and includes those from different religious, political, sexual orientation, intellectual and academic backgrounds.


Seeing Me is an 8-week psycho-educational group program intended to nurture healthy self-esteem in youth(16+)and adults. The program integrates CBT theory & techniques, happiness research and the biopsychosocial perspective. Founder, Nel Keath, developed this program 8 years ago recognizing the impact healthy self-esteem has on overcoming trauma, having resilience to life stresses, and in the confidence to create a happy and balanced life.
