S4, Ep 4 Best Friend Therapy: Self Worth - What is it? How can we improve our relationship with ourselves? Where do we start?

By Elizabeth Day and Emma Reed Turrell

This week on Best Friend Therapy, we're tackling the thorny issue of self-worth, or the lack of it.

Emma explores the difference between self-esteem and "others-esteem" and why we can fall into the trap of outsourcing our sense of self to other people.

Elizabeth compares her self-worth to a solar panel and reveals why chunky socks are a better way to keep warm.

Emma references the psychoanalytical theory of object relations and the work of Donald Winnicott: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Object_relations_theory
