Resources about Self-Esteem

What we can learn from failure

Written by Danjela Falzon
We live in a society where being successful or ‘being the best’ is given enormous value. From a young age we’re taught to aim for the highest grades, to do well at sport, and that winning or achieving will earn us admiration and respect. We often internalise the message that failure is to be avoided at all costs, often experienced as shameful, humiliating or as a blow to our self-worth. Howe…

Understanding the different forms of narcissism

Written by Danjela Falzon
When we hear the term ‘narcissist’, we usually think of the grandiose, self-important, arrogant and powerful world leader or celebrity. Recently, however, the term ‘narcissist’ is increasingly being used to refer to co-workers, bosses, partners or family members. This may be due to a rise in narcissism or simply increased awareness of this toxic personality style. Whichever it is, the real…

Stepping off the social comparison wheel

Written by Danjela Falzon
Comparison is the thief of joyTheodore Roosevelt Social comparison isn’t a new phenomenon. Comparing ourselves to classmates, neighbours and family members has always been something we’ve engaged in as human beings. The difference between 15 years ago and now, however, is that social media use has proliferated to such an extent that the average person’s 10-20 person social circle has …

Self-compassion

Written by Danjela Falzon
Could you imagine a good friend calling to tell you she didn’t get the job she interviewed for and replying – ‘Well, what were you thinking applying for that job anyway? It’s well out of your league. There are people a lot more experienced than you, not to mention more intelligent and accomplished. It’s no wonder you didn’t get it’. Ouch! Of course, you wouldn’t say that, right? Yo…

Never good enough

Written by Danjela Falzon
Think back to the last time someone criticised, judged or rejected you. It probably didn’t feel that great, right? Admittedly, no-one likes to be mistreated in any way, especially by people who are important to us. What if I told you, however, that the pain, anger and anguish we tend to experience when criticised, judged or rejected is mainly because we don’t accept ourselves fully, often feel…

Moving on from unrequited love

Written by Danjela Falzon
Loving or wanting to be with someone who doesn’t feel the same way can trigger a chorus of unpleasant and painful emotions. Let’s face it, we’ve all been there and, with the benefit of hindsight, would probably have moved on much quicker than we were able to at the time. The nature of my work means that I frequently meet people whose intense focus on another person persists despite clear …

Moving on after being ghosted

Written by Danjela Falzon
A few years ago, I met a young woman who needed help moving on from a relationship which had ended two years previously. As Leanne began to tell her story, I learnt that she’d met a man through a colleague and they’d began dating soon after. What followed was, as she described, one of the most romantic, intimate relationships she’d ever experienced. One morning, six months later, he left her…

  • 5 sessions – €270 – must be utilised within 3 months from date of purchase
  • 10 sessions – €520 – must be utilised within 6 months from date of purchase

2. Bundles are not transferable. This means they cannot be used by, or gifted to, anyone else but the person whose name is listed as the TherapyPacks bundle holder.

3. Bundles which are purchased for Couples Therapy and Family Therapy can only be used by members of the couple or family with one therapist. If members of a couple or family decide to take up individual therapy with another therapist, the bundle will only apply to sessions with the therapist originally referred and cannot be also used for the individual sessions with another therapist. Exceptions will be made if the original therapist is unable to see the client or family and the couple or family are referred to another therapist. After referral, the same conditions will apply.

4. Bundles are valid for a limited time period, as listed above. This means that the bundles will expire once the respective time period has elapsed. Any sessions not utilised within this period will be lost. This means that a refund will not be given for unused sessions. Start date commences on date of purchase of bundles.

5. Bundles are only valid for full price sessions (charged at €60) and not for sessions with trainee psychotherapists, reports or assessments.

6. Full payment needs to be made on purchase, via bank transfer, cash or credit card.

7. Management reserves the right to terminate or suspend the use of the bundles. Reasons for such are at the discretion of the clinic.

8. Refunds or extensions of time period within which bundles may be used is at the discretion of management and will only be granted in exceptional circumstances.

9. Management reserves the right to modify or replace the terms and conditions. In such circumstances, clients will be given adequate notice and time to adhere to such.

10. The clinic’s cancellation policy is applicable also to bundles. Late cancellations or no shows will result in the forfeit of a session within the bundle allocation.

11. Responsibility for ensuring timely use of session bundles remains that of the TherapyPacks bundle holder or, in the case of a minor, their carer/legal guardian.
