Building self-esteem In adolescents: We can make a difference!

03rd Aug, 2023

Self-esteem is a crucial aspect of an individual’s well-being, especially during adolescence, the time of life when people are navigating through more significant changes and challenges than any other.

As adolescents grapple with their identities, relationships and academic pressures, fostering a positive self-image becomes essential for their overall development.

Invictus Solutions, a community-led and purpose-driven business for good, recognises the importance of self-esteem in young people and offers a range of services that can empower and support adolescents in their journey of self-discovery and personal growth. We will examine how we can make a difference in this Blog:

  1. School Workshops on Self-Esteem: Invictus Solutions conducts educational workshops in schools throughout Australia that address real-life issues affecting young people and a workshop dedicated to building self-esteem can prove to be immensely valuable for adolescents.

These workshops may focus on topics like self-awareness, self-acceptance, body positivity and dealing with peer pressure. By creating a safe and inclusive space, Invictus Solutions facilitators can engage students in discussions, interactive activities and skill-building exercises to help them develop a positive self-image.

For example, we might engage students in a self-esteem-building exercise where they are encouraged to identify and appreciate their unique strengths, talents and accomplishments.

By acknowledging their successes, students can begin to cultivate a sense of self-worth and confidence, leading to improved self-esteem.

  1. One-on-One Counselling: Adolescents facing specific challenges related to self-esteem may benefit greatly from individualised support. Invictus Solutions offers one-on-one counselling sessions with trained counsellors who specialise in working with young people.

Through confidential and compassionate conversations, our counsellors can help adolescents explore the root causes of their low self-esteem, whether it be academic struggles, family dynamics or social pressures.

For instance, a young client struggling with body image issues may find solace in discussing their feelings and concerns with an Invictus Solutions counsellor.

The counsellor will provide empathy and guidance, helping the client challenge negative self-perceptions and develop a more positive and realistic self-image.

  1. Mentoring for Personal Growth: Mentoring can be a powerful tool in building self-esteem in adolescents.

Headed by our founder Dean Mousad, Invictus Solutions has a formidable team of Muslim educators, facilitators, mentors, consultants and counsellors who can serve as positive role models and guides for young individuals.

Through mentorship programs, adolescents can access support and encouragement to set goals, overcome obstacles and gain confidence in their abilities.

Take as an example a teenager struggling with low self-esteem due to academic challenges.

He or she may find inspiration and practical advice from an Invictus Solutions mentor who has overcome similar obstacles in their own educational journey.

The mentor can offer valuable strategies and insights, fostering a sense of resilience and determination in the mentee.

  1. Consulting for Parents and Teachers: Building self-esteem in adolescents is a collaborative effort that involves not just the young individuals themselves but also their parents and teachers. Invictus Solutions recognises this and also offers consulting services to parents and teachers, providing them with the tools and knowledge they need to support the self-esteem development of the adolescents under their care.

We conduct workshops/training sessions for parents and teachers on effective communication, providing constructive feedback and creating a positive and nurturing environment for adolescents.

When parents and teachers are equipped with the right skills, they can play a pivotal role in boosting the self-esteem of young individuals.

Summing up, self-esteem is a critical factor in the overall well-being and development of adolescents.

Invictus Solutions, with its community-led and purpose-driven approach, is uniquely positioned to address the self-esteem needs of young people.

Through our educational workshops, one-on-one counselling, mentoring, and consulting services, Invictus Solutions is already making a positive impact on the lives of Australian adolescents, helping them build resilience, confidence and a strong sense of self-worth.

By investing in the self-esteem of today’s youth, Invictus Solutions isn’t just empowering individuals – we are also contributing to the creation of a more confident, capable and compassionate future generation.
